Sightly annoying that 2 emails later i still have not had a reply .
I am perhaps being somewhat impatient BUT ......

I hope that Ali is away from his computer and will be in touch soon . He is a Ebayer with good feedback .

Not enough hours in the day for another project for me Mark.

You would think anyone buying a car such as an Elan on Ebay would get in touch straight away. :o

Buyer might be a busy man too... ebay tells me he also bid on an Audi & a Subaru within an hour of the Elan and earlier had bid on a Vauxhall/Opel .... I fear the worst, may be a case of VD.

Leave me alone, I think I know what I'm doing.

No excuse these days Clemo, even for a Luddite like me. He might be away from his pc but everyone has a smartphone. I fear the worst from Ali Zico :? I too suspect he's in the trade and a vehicle dismantler. Oor Ali's also had 3 retracted bids in the last few months !!

Yeah ... really pi$$es me off ..

Wasted a week with ebay pulling it , now wasted another week with bell end Ali from Birmingham bidding and not buying ,
Back on for 1 more re-list on Friday / Saturday and if no bites then into dry storage till next year .

If anyone wants it for £2900 they can take it away .

Clemo - report Ali Bellend to EBay as a time waster and con man. If you don't someone else will suffer. Unfortunately with EBay this, and shill bidding, happens all too frequently :?

Good luck with the sale

I will report him Mark , though 4 days have to pass before i can open up a non paying bidder thing .
I dont even think there are any real consequences of bidding and then ignoring the seller .
Ebay seems to protect the buyer at all times .

Whist i seem grumpy about this I'm just tired of Ebay and selling things .
Once i used to get a real buzz from it . Now its just hard work and a ball ache to achieve anything ( but hard work).

oh well .

Sorry to hear this, can you offer it to the next highest bidder ?

Do you get any of your listing fees back if you report him ?

eBay doesn't let Sellers give buyers negative feedback any more. Buyers can beat up sellers all the time.

ALL buyers will have 100% feedback

I rarely sell anything on eBay anymore. After many years of listing Laptop repair parts, eBay changed the rules and people are now able to bid, win and ignore - costing the seller ALL of the fees UNLESS the buyer agrees to cancel the transaction which is a RARE occasion.

Thank you Simon

It was through gritted teeth i got used to the idea of letting it go at £2900 and then with fees ...
anything less than that is driving down prices of our cars . £2900 on here to the owners club community wouldn't hurt as much .
It will probably end up going back into dry storage and coming out next year at say £3750 early season . That way i could park it at the bottom of my road and probably get an easy sale .

I hope to get my listing fees back as the transaction has not taken place .

I too used to like E bay (buying only though) Nowadays it sucks. It seems very corrupt with shill bidding and always seems to favour the buyer. The seller always seems to lose out :?

Anyway, I'm sure someone on LEC with a limited budget will buy it eventually. Pound for pound, these little cars have to be the best value, fast, head turning car anywhere on this planet 8)

If he does i will delete him .
I should be able to claim back my wasted listing fee tomorrow as enough time has passed .
Its now back on ebay and has a few bids in the first few hours .
Not that it really means much until the money is in the pocket and all that .

Still only £1805 and only 2 days to go.

A long way to he dizzy heights of £2900. If you don't need the money, pull the plug Clemo and stick it in a garage until the sun shines again. It's gotta be worth north of £3.5 k ??

:agree:
Of course the price may rise a bit at the end but still, that's not a lot of money.

I agree with both of your posts .
will it ramp up at the end , or is it just not the time to sell at all and yes its an easy £3.5 + car at the beginning of the season .
unless i am missing something ... which i probably am . There are another 2 reds for sale . Both needing engine attention and at similar prices to mine .

So either these are breaker prices or people value a lower mileage non running engine than a spray job .

Oh well .
