"Please no silly offers or tyre kickers"

You might be better adding a price to the advert to help prevent this

Trouble is I'm not sure where the market is at the moment. I'm thinking between £9-10k.

Is that way out?

I'd be pleasantly surprised if you got that. I've got an L reg SE (Dec 93) that's a bit more 'last' than yours with only 47k miles on it. Might need to revise my insurance value. . :-D

Why didn't I see this before? I'm up the road in Kidderminster and would like to take a look at your car next weekend if it's still available.

I haven't sussed how to send a PM yet so, if the car is still available at the end of the week, could you PM me?

Thanks.

Disappointed that some people's word is not their bond and back out of a sale that has been agreed because they get a better offer from elsewhere. :(

Oh hum. I will have to keep looking, I suppose.

Hi think I need to clarify a couple of points;

1. No seller in their right minds would not respond to an offer of more than £1000 over the original offer, If it was a couple of hundred pounds then I would understand.

2. The person that made the original offer was given the opportunity to match the new offer but declined.

3. The second person was made aware that if their new was matched then the original person would have the car.

4. There was no deposit in place and was not discussed.


It was a very difficult dilemma, after seeking advice from family and friends in business, I am comfortable with how I handled this situation.

I am disappointed it has come to have to clarify this in an open forum.

My Elan keepership has come to an end, I'm please that over the last nearly 10 years of ownership, not only have I kept one of our beloved Elans on the road but it has left my hands in better shape than I got it.

Take care to all the great guys and ladies I've met and shared a pint and curry with, until we meet again, God Bless.

All the best for the future GeeO.

Whoever has bought your car looks like they have got a very nice example .
If people are queuing to buy it than that can only speak volumes as to how you have cared for it over the many years ..

I know Gerry had a difficult decision to make. But it made him an offer, he countrered and, while i was thinking about it, he rang mw back and accepted my original offer as long as he could keep the original rear lights which, he said, he could sell for £800. So, in effect, there was only a couple of hundred pounds between the two offers and, when one is told that the seller has received a much larger offer when no one else was mentioned as bieing interested and they were picking up the car the next day, one is going to feel as though they are being hustled.

Anyway, that's life. No one was injured and the car has found a new home so all's well.
