HELP More selling advice please

Post by tom_sk » Fri 13 Apr, 2018 19:48

Hello all. Finally made the decision to part with my Z3 and Spares/mods (see viewtopic.php?f=5&t=45300 )

I would appreciate any comments/advice/help with these:

1. It has MOT until 7 Jul but has only done 39 miles since the last one. Would you, as a prospective purchaser, prefer to see 12 months on?

2. Having my ‘M’ seats up for sale, it occurred to me that I can’t be sure the motors etc. are OK since I just swapped bases to make it easier putting pre-facelift seats into a facelift car. I bought them through this forum, advertised in good working condition with new bushes. I believe the seller had previously acquired them from the forum. I guess I just trusted people on here to be honest and I'm sure they are!
What is the best way for me to test them?

3. I have tried to price up the spares by searching online but can’t find many around. What do you reckon to the following? Am I over/undervaluing them?
Seats £450
Chrome gills £100
Black tonneau £100
Mesh wind deflector £100
Door cards – better give them free with the car as I’ve just noticed that I forgot to swap the inserts back when I put original seats back in!

All OEM and in v.good condition.

4. Would it be in order to post text of my ad on here for comments? I tried to make it detailed for anyone not familiar with the Z3 but I think it is too long. Do sites like Autotrader, Pistonheads etc. have a limit on advert length?

Thanks in advance for any comments.

Happy zedding

put a fresh ticket on it - for the sake of £40 - £50, much easier to sell a car with it done.

Also, any luck with finding the original gearknob and handbrake, as I'm after the storm stuff you have ;) ( I can supply the replacements if you need)

Probably not a bad idea, I'll see if my indy can fit it in this week

Yes, found the handbrake bit but not the gear knob. At this very minute I'm sorting out my pictures ready to put an ad up tonight.
I'm thinking of offering all the spares with the car as a job lot (if I get near my asking price) because I need to get it sold before our holidays and don't want to mess about with packing/posting etc.
