If he doesn’t follow through then it’s name and shame time. You’ll have his details as he won the auction.

Apparently we are waiting on Shipley quotes.
:headbanging

But I can see a single listing for it.

Wtf bid on something you are not going to buy
Wtf doesn’t eBay force a deposit at least enough to cover costs of relisting.

Think this one is destined to stay in the flock a bit longer.

:mope

But my red gti is due Home on Sunday so one of my cars is going to get sold or scrapped for parts to make room.

Too late for that. He’s committed to it. If you win an auction you buy. End of. Tell him straight.

Feel ebays forceful rule, like the breath of a feather.

eBay says, don't do it again for a month or we'll be forced to send you an email.

Just another reinforcement as to the reason I never sell my cars (in one piece anyway).

Looking like it will be curtains for the 420 gsi-t

No point, all it did was reaffirm my reasons for never selling my cars (in one piece) and made me realise the car was too good to give away for pennies. It drives like a new car and has got at least 60k miles before anything major will need looking into.

So in short it’s gonna be kept and used as the back up car.

But one of the other cars (420 gsit) will probably hit the chopping block before Xmas.

Good news that you’re keeping it.

I’ve bought and sold several cars on eBay over the years and never had a problem, but I know lots do.

The bigger question should be what’s next to go.

And will it be in one or multiple pieces.

You've sold her via Car&Classic then Craig? seen the advert! :D

What are the auto's like to drive? I know it's a 4 speed box but that's about it; what is the engine rpm at 70 MPH for example?

I ask because I've just had a nasty bout of gout in my big toe that rendered me housebound from a standing start in 2 day's flat. :scared

What else are you thinking of selling then craig, none will be auto's I expect?

I may be moving my grey one on, as I'm not bonding with her.

My only knowledge on the auto is how hard parts are to source for the gearbox. Only one I’ve ever driven was lovely and smooth up to 40mph. Never got past that.

As for other cars if I’m being honest with my self both gti’s and the 420 are likely targets as next to go.
