    Hi steve,

    From experience, I would sell it in autotrader and autotrader online I know they are not the cheapest but you will definalty get some interest and majority will not be timewasters, which you will most definattly get from ebay.

    The car looks near on brand new mate, I would try it at £14,995o.n.o. and let it go for £14,000, make sure he says in the ad "reluctant sale due to emmigration" that should draw more interest to his rather than others.

    Yeh I would sayso mate, definatly the no1 choice for most serious car buyers.

    If you advertise private you will end up with test pilots and tyre-kickers.

    good luck mate hope he gets what he wants for it

    TT.

    Just be careful with Autotrader mate, it is undoubtedly the best way to sell a car in my opinion but there are a lot of scammers at the moment using Autotrader.

    They claim that they are from France, USA, sometimes England, etc... and claim that they want you to pay a bankers draft into your account and talk about 'shipping' companies which owe them money, etc...

    I know you're a smart guy and wont be caught out if you do put it in Autotrader, but just thought i would warn you so you know if things like this start to happen then it is a scam and they have no intention of actually paying for the car mate.

    LOL, are you making a thinly veiled attempt to sell to a fellow Mt'er ??

    no, of course your not, thats a nice car and selling them can be a pain in the arse - tyre kickers galore, i know you wont make as much cash but for a hassle free sale - a dealer will take it off your hands.
