    Legit Car? ...What do you reckon?

    Opinions?

    ... Looking at S3's to buy. This one is in AT at mo. Trader. Working from lock-up in London. No other premises. Gave me Reg, Eng number, chassis number, all checked out... refuses to tell where car came from, refuses to give home address or other detail. I walked away. Car is at an amasing price. Too good to be true??! I was worried it was cloned. If nothing wrong, why 2.5k under book price? It's 500 quid below glasses trade price!!

    I did here of a con whereby people come round and view a car for sale as a private sale, and then don't buy it. They then advertise it themselves on somewhere like eBay or AT at a much reduced price, and if they get someone interested they steal the car 'to order' - having been round to your house so they know exactly where to find it.

    Friend of a friend spotted this when he found his M3 being advertised on eBay with a 'buy it now' price of 5k less than he was asking in AT. After much arguing, eBay pulled the ad.

    You definitely did the right thing to walk away. Anything that gives you a bad vibe should not be pursued further. Keep searching for your S3 - you'll find one that ticks all the boxes.

    Agreed. If someone is honestly selling the right car at the wrong money, and is keen enough on a quick sale to take a 2.5K hit on the money, surely they should be keen to give away a few particulars for free?...

    Regards,
