Its honestly so much of a PITA selling cars these days. Everyone seems to think that they can get something for nothing and cant be bothered asking questions etc. Almost to the point that trade just takes all the hassle away for a little less cash.

Ive just put my daily car up for sale for a little under £4k, woke up to some who just sent "£1800?" through ebay................... frustrated

It is frustrating but then most times all of a sudden a genuine person comes along and its usually hassle free.

I've found the worst way to sell a car on eBay is on auction, then BIN with best offer, then BIN, then classified ad. Classified is cheapest on fees too and disables the chance of some moron pressing a button and causing you loads of aggro with the fees.

Couldn’t see how you do a classified ad.
Is that not just trade these days?

I've just tried now. When you do the listing, half the way down the page is a heading: Selling Details

Under that is Format: with a drop down box with 3 options: Auctio Style, Fixed Price or Classified. Classified is for 28 days and £14.99 and open to anyone, not just trade.

As Graham says, it’s a bloody nightmare selling anything (another reason I’m too-ing and fro-ing over selling mine).

As Alex says Classified is the best. Slightly higher listing fee of about £20 iirc, but when someone comes to view, importantly “before” bidding or making an offer, as some folk won’t have time in an auction, then if they buy it you just cancel the listing and avoid any final sale fees.

So many chavs and dumbo’s out there texting exactly the type of thing you’ve shown above. Unfortunately 996s are right in that territory due to them being the cheap mans 911. frustrated

There’s no other option when selling though if you don’t want to give it away.
Stick at it. Thumb

Yep always use classified. Also put your phone number in the add as eBay has this thing where you can't send emails or phone numbers through thier message system.

I'm sure there are loads of people who spend all day long just typing low offers into their phones.

If one a month comes off they can make an easy couple of quid. You just have to ignore them.

You can expect a 996, especially a recorded car to take a while to sell. Stick to your guns as some one who knows their onions will come along sooner or later!

I made a business out of it. I'd bid on 100 items a week, win 10 on average and re-sell on a BIN for a 50% (minimum) mark-up. Kept me busy for 5 years and bought me a 996.

The Aston in that link looks very good value! They are outrageously good to look at too aren't they!?

I've heard nothing but tales of regret from people buying them though, am I alone in this? I ask as if what I've been hearing is wrong then I'd consider a vantage too if my turbo ever sells. Dont know


Front engine rear wheel drive with a very solid engine.
Clutch change runs at £1600 up to 2k for the uprated version so not killer and there are a surprising amount of owners that work on there own cars which is good.

I think its a classic case of early owners being bent over and lubed up by the main dealers which propogated these stories.


The clutch and paintwork are the weak links for a V8V. I'd be surprised to get a clutch change for 1600... the lowest quote I got was over 3k (3 years ago)! Make sure you thoroughly check the paint for bubbling, bottoms of doors, mirror stalks, roof gutters, door handle surrounds. They may be mostly aluminium but oxidation is a bitch!
I don't regret owning mine one bit though.

Oh, and try to get a 2007MY+ car with the improved seats, LEDs in the door handles etc. The older seats will eventually get a "ribbed for your pleasure" look where the heating elements show through the leather.
Don't expect a clutch to last much more than 30k miles either. Mine was at 62k miles on original clutch and that was deemed impressive by specialists (motorway miles before I bought it).

I bought it from a trader for 31k at 7 years old, included in the deal was respraying both sides and the front end. Owned it for 2 years and 2 months (and 12k miles) and sold it to that guy for 28.5k (after trying to sell privately for a couple of months). He initially advertised it at 33k and has dropped it a couple of times!

Issues I had were electrical related such as the car totally dying on me with all dashboard lights on - thought to be a battery issue so that was replaced. Also the fuel gauge would randomly drop to zero sometimes then slowly come back to where it should be.

I'd have another one someday.
