Have had a few offers since Monday one from a dealer (looks at his items for sale and lots of cars) £8000, and 2 of £10,000 and that was with my poor description and proberbly not genuine buyers since making it over eBay rather than coming to view the car but still we’re heading in the right direction and not a million miles away from the £12,000 that I really want

Got to love the traders that throw these low ball offers in. It must actually work sometimes.

Ricky, you say you are not very good at selling, maybe this is all a master plan, you seem to be doing a very good job of creating a lot of interest in your car, 4 pages so far on here, and offers on ebay!!
Well done, surely a sale is not far off!!

I’m not good at selling full stop haha, yes there’s 4 pages but the first 3 pages of comments are awful so I don’t think this post would help the sale in any way but the help I’ve been given with the template description and needing better pictures are priceless 👌

Hi Ricky

Just searched ebay and taken a look at your updated advert.... I missed the original version, but have got the gist from this thread. I see its now using the improved words and that you have updated some photos (now with a respray shot).

A couple of further slight improvements and I think it will definitely encourage people to come and view it - which is often half the battle. Suggest you:
1) Update the pictures - I know you don't feel they are that important, but to many people, buying a Porsche is a bit of a present to themselves, so they want to feel good about it. Hence jewellery is always beautifully presented in a nice display box etc. - it doesn't change the actual item, but it changes how people perceive it and its value
2) You copied Wasz's excellent template - however I think he intended you to add details yourself where he wrote "(needs date and mileage age for each)", rather than copy those actual words into your advert. So suggest you delete that bit and add the date and mileage against each bullet

Overall, the advert looks to be improving and hopefully the weather is picking up, which should allow better photos and also often stimulates the sports-car market.

Good luck with the sale......

What’s strange about wanting the £12,000 it’s up for so not accepting £11,000???

Yes will take a cheap px if it helps the buyer as long as I can get the money for the car ie £10,000 plus a £2000 golf as long as I can get £2000 for it....

Yes well spotted 10 points to you I have now dropped the price as have been messed around that many times in one week it’s unreal!,


it says carrera 4 on the back so take your smart arse comments else where nobody’s interested it was a discussion on price which is now a for sale add so nobody cares if it had a gt3 wing on it and a gt3 badge if I wanted a gt3 I’d of bought one a friend of mine owns a 996 gt3 and a c2 with aero kit which also has a gt3 badge on it so what....
