i can not, for the life of me, understand why all and sundry feel the need to advise a seller on what he should be doing with his own car.

Aside from tongue in check remarks about selling off gay body kits seperately. What business is it of anyone else how much its for sale for? If its too much for your pocket dont bloody buy it, simple.

Mind your own business and have some manors imho!

Did it ever occur that the seller may feel its not worth selling below a certain price and would rather keep it instead? Or what ever?

its one thing to haggle if interested, and quite another to walk in announce to the world something is overpriced and walk out again with no intention of buying.

Doesnt happen down the shops, on auto trader, or anywhere else afaik. If i was selling a car and someone got in touch by what ever means purely to tell me its over priced i would consider the person....... very rude.

We all get hump when selling and get calls from third party sellers or other advertisers, why?
Because we are advertising a sale at a given price.
We are not asking for opinions on valuation or other services or anything else for that matter.

If a seller advertises, i'm quite sure he would prefer contact from genuine buyers?

I agree there.

I have a 99 V plate 2.5 GLS Saloon Auto in Star Silver.  65K on the clock.

Needs a back box and maybe some more exhaust, reckon it needs a TRE as well.  Other than that there is no reason it wouldnt go through an MOT.

Currently Sorn,needs a wash as have turned down £500 to take it away.

I dont actually know what it's worth, but I certainly wont take £500 for it. :-/

I've told dealers their cars are daftly overpriced before, and I've not even been looking at the car for sale in question. I wouldn't go as far as saying that here; this is an Omega forum and Omegas are worth more to a fan of the car than to someone wandering in off the street, of course.

I've phoned up cars on Autotrader and said "it looks like a good car but in my opinion it's overpriced for what it is". It's a buyer's market, the seller has to be prepared to hear things like that.

Personally, if I were selling another Omega on here, I would prefer to receive 2 pages of "I think it's overpriced" than to receive absolutely no replies from "genuine buyers" and wonder why my car has received no interest.

A dozen people who know Omegas offering their opinion that my car was overpriced; to me that's valuable information!

I can also appreciate the frustration of having three pages of replies and no offers of actual interest; so I apologise to Robsey for contributing to this, and will drop the subject now, promise.

Its been interesting watching this thread.

What I find quite amusing is people saying, for example, "i'd have it if it were an estate", or "shame it's an auto" ....... :-? :-?

If the car is properly described as being a manual saloon then why say "I'd buy it if it were an estate?" Isn't that a bit like going to view what you know to be a 3 bedroomed house and then saying I'd buy it if it had 4 bedrooms?

Just my view, but I have seen it quite a bit of this on the form and find it amusing. Nuf said by me.† :-X

I didn't say 3,250 no offers!!
Now maybe stripping vehicle of irmscher body kit and sale on for £1650
(Guess thats too much too) no doubt someone will tell me  :-/

Others have said i'd get more by breaking kit off but you people are just wrong thinking it.
you telling me i'll get
£450 front bumper
£300 rear bumper
£250 rear pipes
£100 grille
£850 sport stars
Some of them parts cost me a damn lot more than that!

So this would be better sold all together. (Cheaper!)

Willing to return car to normal for price above.
