      Yeah, you don't want that car. The owner was all proud of the engine build until several of us pointed out that the valve cover was put together with RTV rather than the proper anaerobic sealant. Who knows how much of it leaked into the oil passages and who knows what else was done improperly. The build was completed just last year and now he's dumping it. Wonder why.

      What's wrong with George?
      The front piece under the hood is rusty and it has a K&N filter (or at least a sticker).

      His kids are grown. It wouldn’t hurt as much. Plus you wouldn’t have to pay child support/alimony so it’s a win-win.

      Good to know, I’m glad that if there are issues with it, the community is already aware. I hope someone with the means to check that thing over gets their hands on it and gets it proper, because it looks so damn sharp.

      how do you know she wouldn't owe him? that was my case. but alas, hoping to win her back and foolish/false pride I didn't take it.
      financially poorer, but maybe emotionally richer. yeah, who am I kidding, divorce is a bone crusher (no pun intended but works as well).

      as they say, 'happy wife, happy life', i guess I didn't get the memo.

      doggone it. I was already to book a flight to Seattle when this shows up in my state. hood and roof would need repainting. thats probably difficult to match but hey I got low standards. sunroof looks a little jacked as well. does this look lowered?

      no wipers!!! and trailer hitch, 1 1/4" receiver however but as they say beggars can't be choosers.

      That back wheel is either lowered or the shocks and struts are really tired. It looks kind of how my T5 does when it’s packed to the ceiling with 3-weeks’ worth of interior campaign equipment, as well as a fully loaded big Thule on top.

      So this guy created a for sale listing for a car he's supposedly thinking about buying? I think there's a good chance he's trolling judging from the rest of his account/posts.

      Interior‘s pretty nice, but imo it’s overpriced (thoughts on that??). Seller says he’s selling the ‘06 at a very similar price too.

      Yeah, that's really expensive for the miles, like 2x, lol. Seats do look nice though.

      From what I’ve seen, people post these and they never sell. Then they become “template pricing” for the next person who has one for sale. It’s like broken telephone.

      Exhibit A:
      http://www.autotrader.ca/go/19-11510598

      This has been up since late April. One price change.

      I don’t know why they do it, I don’t know where they get these imaginary values they try and sell them for, and I don’t know why the actual ads are often condescending, written with a “holier-than-thou” attitude (the Electric ad is a happy exception, I’m talking about this Sapphire/Atacama one)

      Those ads are just written for their spouses - "See honey, I've listed the car like you suggested, there's just no activity!"

      Either that or it's just a fishing expedition trying to take advantage of the BaT effect. Don't really care if it sells or not.

      Or a little bit of both, lol.

      The other day, I was let into cross-traffic by a newer M3. When we got to the next light, the driver pulled up on my passenger side and asked if I had ever considered selling. Apparently, he "buys and sells cars" and had previously owned a 1998 or 1999 V70R in silver. When I replied that it took me 3 years to find one that was up to my standards, he said, "Oh, I guess not." It was then that I also informed him that if I was going to sell, it would probably be listed on Bring A Trailer. To be honest, I don't know "how" I would list it for sale, but it would definitely follow the "Make Me Move" model that Zillow has for homes. Somebody go set that site up, "Make Me Sell My Classic!"

      My search was almost over... almost...
      EDIT: 20k? Holy sh!t, for a TF80 at those miles? Nevermind. Skywolf, I'm going to track down your old VR. Just kidding, I'd love to. But honestly, I wouldn't treat it up to your standards. Lol.
