    That's a great idea. Send them to Maranello in Egham!

    We had the same rubbish when trying to sell my wife's MX5 for the bargain price of £500 (it needed some work hence the price). Same old same old. "It's all in the advert dammit, no I won't accept £275 when it's only been on the market for a day…"


    Dave, I thought your PH ad was quite amusing, i.e.. don't call me if you're a t055er etc

    Yep, but it clearly didn't work!

    The old F355 of mine is still for sale at £99k. Think it might be with a different dealer now than earlier this year. However since I sold it in September 2015 the only the guy who drove/owned it since, who I sold it too (private sale) used it for no more than 6 months at best.
    So nearly 18 months after and it is still for sale. Too highly priced?
    Fair enough to the first paragraph and probably to the second

    Looks really excellent value for an RHD manual. Did think there must be something fishy about it when I first saw the PH advert, but now don't having seen this thread.
    I'd have probably snapped your arm off at the asking price a year ago. Ah well.

    That can be the problem with pricing something at the bottom of it's particular market - people suspect there may be a reason for it. And most PH advert browsers won't see this thread. "Baby forces sale" seems to help but generally most people think that's tosh.

    There was actually a study done on this a few years back. Essentially items at the extreme top and extreme bottom of their market price wise don't sell easily - people fear the lowest priced item and think they're being ripped off by the highest priced. I forget which statistically sells the best but seem to recall it's the items priced just above the mean as people like to feel they've got a 'good' example slightly more than that they got a good deal. It was a study on human nature but translates well into almost every market.

    I hadn't considered I was really selling particularly cheap - I figured it was a realistic price rather than a dream one. But I must admit, other than the other thread I started on here I didn't do a great amount of research into prices.

    If it is 'too cheap' then I guess either it won't sell, or first to see will buy. I have had a couple of enquiries which would make it unreasonable to change the price now.

    I have been giving more thought to how I feel about selling it. I did have one genuine call (I think) this morning and it didn't put me in the best mood. And, although I really do need to reduce my car costs - there is a certain irony to me selling the one car that - although expensive - has appreciated enough that in reality it's cost me nothing.

    But, for whatever reason my use of it has reduced in the last couple of years. Italy in it last year was great, but apart from that it does sometimes seem like an expensive garage ornament and I'm surprised how rarely I want to use it. (Although I still think it's amazing when I do).

    My gut feeling is I'd like it to get sold this month - but if it doesn't, I won't lose much sleep over having to keep it!

    A relative owns a jewellers in Falmouth right where the cruise ships stop over to disgorge its wealthy american passengers for a shopping visit. She could not sell a lovely pearl necklace ( stop giggling at the back ) for £ 800. She got loads of interest and viewings of it but no sale materialised. She put the price up to £1250 and the next person that walked in bought it.

    I like £62,950. Has a nice non-symmetry to it.

    Some annoying chancer might try to bid you down to £55k

    The PH ad has resulted in a viewing at 4pm tomorrow. Which is rather quicker than I would have liked, but a viewing isn't necessarily a sale. I'm still not convinced this is a good idea, so we'll see how I feel if the buyer really is genuine.
