In Reply to: Stevie - I was going to pick my M3 up tomorrow... posted by Derin on January 26, 2000 at 17:00:28:
: ...and guess what? the guy sold it to someone else who came up from London late last night!
: It was a diamond black very standard M3 1989 but with a genuine (as far as I could see!)29,000 miles on the clock. It was in absolutely mint condition (truly!).
: I went all the way down to Southport on Saturday and agreed to give him the asking price of ten grand (he wouldn't come down a penny). I offered to give him a deposit with the rest on collection tomorrow night. He wouldn't take it and said some 'motoring journalist'was also trying to get time to come up and see it during the week.
: I spent a lot of time and effort getting the money sorted out quickly with the bank (who were most helpful)and what does the f**ker do? - leaves a message on my answer phone this morning after 9 O'Clock telling me he sold the car last night! Well I suppose I hadn't quite booked my train ticket to go there yet ..so that was good!
: You know what? (I know it's sour grapes) but I hope the car f**cks up big time - unfortunately I don't think there's any chance it will!
: Seeing this car and missing it by less than 48 hrs after agreeing to buy it has kind of put me off looking for a while now.
: How are you enjoy your car?
and they are I know it's a corny saying but whats for you won't go past you.The wanker that never sold you car was'nt worth handing over 10k to anyway so f***K him,I hope he uses this forum!!I honestly believe that if you wait you will get a good M3 because they're is good ones out there, it's just a matter of biding your time!"All good things come to those who wait"
Good luck Derin.
