hardly, If someone advertises something at up to 200% of the market value & places many images of it on the internet it is pretty inevitable that people who are interested in that thing would be likely to comment.

Hardly a "British Disease". We have enough of those as it is :lol:

its a helpfull service to potential buyers......as many have the money but no clue as to what makes a mini special or any old car for that matter.

it would be a nice world where nobody questioned car dealers and auction houses about what they sell........for the dealers not the buyers :roll:

Agree with you there Swifty. And it looks a nice Mini. Just got a bit of an eye watering price tag. It wasn’t that long since a nice Mk1 S was £15k and I thought that was daft. Nowadays that will only buy a basket case. If he gets near the asking price good luck to him.

Comments are really about the high price being asked - what else can you say in this case @£75K ?

“ oooh that looks like good value, if I was in the market i would buy that mini”

In the end this is just a greedy dealer trying his luck (good luck to him) in case there is an investor out there with more money than sence....maybe they will find one. I doubt it though because what is special about it? - by the look of it its just a collection of new parts.

:D
