970 S Cooper

Want to sell something? Here's the place to list it for free! (DIRECT SALES / SWAPS) No ebay links please.
Forum rules
For Sale Section Rules

PLEASE NOTE! Postings in this section are deleted automatically after they have not been looked at for 30 days.

1) This section is for advertising items that you have for sale. Not for the discussion of listed items. If you wish to debate the pro's & Con's of any item listed, please start a new topic in the appropriate section.

2) Please DO NOT post links to your ebay auctions. This section is NOT for the advertisement of your ebay auctions.

3) If you have a number of items to sell, post them in a single ad marked "Multiple Parts" or similar. DO NOT post many individual advertisements as this forces everyone else's listings down the page.

4) It is expected that any items advertised on the forum are described fairly & honestly. It is the duty of the seller to ensure that this is the case.

5) Items listed for sale should WHEREVER POSSIBLE* be offered with a purchase price, not asking for bids from members. If you wish to auction your item to the highest bidder I would suggest you use ebay & pay the associated fees.

6) This section is offered as a free service to enthusiasts. Any deals made are between the buyer & seller only. The MK1 forum takes no part in any transaction & the appearance of any item in this section is not a recommendation. I strongly suggest that both buyers & sellers are happy to proceed with a deal before any money or goods change hands.

7) It expected that people posting items for sale are "Active Members of this community". Any Adverts placed by members with a post count lower than 5 will be deleted.

8) The advertising of or soliciting for VIN tags, log books or any other vehicle identification documentation without it's associated vehicle is expressly forbidden. Any member breaking this rule will have his membership terminated with immediate effect.

9) If a moderator considers any postings in this section to violate either the spirit or word of these simple requests the MK1 Forum reserves the right to delete any posts without prior warning or explanation.

10) The posting of items for sale on the MK1 forum constitutes explicit acceptance of these simple rules.

11) Members posting items for sale MUST include a rough location in their profile.

It would be much appreciated if sellers could leave the sale price on adverts after the item has been sold. This acts as a good measure of current value for other sellers.

* In some cases it may not be possible for the seller to list items with a sale price. In this case, listings will be reviewed on a case by case basis by a moderator. The moderators decision will be final.

I don't get "POA". What's the point, too embarrassed to show what you're asking for it ?.

Totally agree.

If an advert has POA, I instantly consign it to the bin.

It's a great way to attract time wasters that's all. I can just see him being inundated with "m8 will u take £5k and part-x on a 93 Scooby ?".

Can somebody actually explain what the point in a ‘P.O.A’ is please? Has it ever actually worked at any point in course of history?? Genuine question as I am forever baffled by this approach.
As per the last comment you must surely attract no end of chancers and wannabes. I can only see disadvantages to this

70,000 euro's, sorry, I hate to destroy the mystique!

I think POA is a way of getting people to increase their telephone bill on the hope it will be dead cheap to someone as nice as the caller. but unfortunately usually just leads to 'ffs you're joking'.

I get it with cars in the £500k+ bracket as obviously it's meaningless to the vast majority of people who would have no interest anyway. However most Mini enthusiasts have a good idea on general values so putting POA on one just means they are chancing it with an excessive valuation and don't want the negative feedback. Well that backfired then......
