IMHO every item should have a quoted price.  Come on MT!

I'm surprised the MT haven't pulled the add or insisted a price be added - bit slack on their part.

Transparency is the key with adds,

If you want to place silly buggers, auction something, or have potential buyers 'make me and offer' - then there's another site for that

I've always been transparent and never had a problem either buying or selling with members  Thumb Up

Shouldn't be that big a deal to add a price,if unsure you can always ask and someone will give you a good idea of value. Does expecting a price extend to just putting up a post telling everyone they have something for sale on fleabay, surely as a club it would be more in the spirit to offer it here 1st. As previous posts I have had only great dealings with members, buying and selling,

I find ads with price on application most annoying.

I do also and I won't bother to offer on them as I always suspect the seller is going to be unrealistic.  I won't however post on their for sale thread in an attempt to derail it.  It appears that there are no rules stating that adverts must have a price.  There are however rules about posting to cause other people annoyance. 

The people posting on that thread to argue with the seller are much more in the wrong than the person they are complaining about.

I'm posting this out of pure annoyance now!  33K satisfied!.  

Is that so unrealistic! Oakmere have also guaranteed that value in March, when the 620 order would arrive.  They've also said I can keep the car over the winter months and use as I please.

Garybee,

The OP obviously caused 'other people annoyance' I would say......... Rolleyes 

 

Mark,

Sounds like you have a great deal there, Thumb Up is the new 620 going to be a factory built or have you managed to get a kit from them...?

Just in time for the chippy run Rotate

I can see how someone would be annoyed by interferers posting on their for sale thread.  I can't see any reasonable person getting annoyed at someone else selling their car in an inefficient manner.  Rolled  eyes are definitely appropriate at the 2nd situation.
