If you had posted on insta that the MR2 was an automatic only a handful of people would have voted for it. On the plus side now I get to laugh when you investigate to see just how much of a dog you guys have bought. Someone bring me some popcorn

I lived in a dystopian street which had the coolest grass areas. There was a guy who had a red Audi 80, he maintained it and drove it every day for his own reasons. Between 2009-2019 he drove it, every day he would wash it, and his caravan. One morning he was riding his bicycle naked, in circles. He left the gas on while his wife was in bed. Not sure what happened to him but last Christmas, the Audi was still there. I think it was a 92. His house, car and caravan were in perfect condition.

The dog end of the car market is a hateful, frustrating place. Whilst haggling before one has seen the car is a little uncouth, after watching the viewing it was more than legit since that MR2 is a bit of a mess. Maybe the airbox could have been slapped on before the test drive but I doubt a few miles of no filtration does that much harm anyway. Interesting to see how it turns out and please don't spent a fortune on it and pass it off as a decent project, do it all shoestring like what someone who isn't doing it as a game would do!

Problem with Facebook marketplace is it won't let you advertise at a price if it (Facebook) deems it (the price)too expensive, in comparison to other similar cars based purely on make/models

This should have been a case where you take an internet poll, then conclude the internet doesn't know what it's talking about and get the Audi 80.

MR2 is nice and all, but it's been done to death. The audi would have been perfect, and the owner, she seemed a a dear lady who was quite honest about the state of the car. It would have been a great classic German build.

People have to use preposterous prices on Marketplace because FB has certain values it thinks cars should be at... If you try listing outside of what they think it should be, it won't allow you - so you need to put in a bogus number and put the real price in the description. It's annoying, but FB is at fault (most of the time).

Facebook marketplace (stupidly) values your car, when advertising, so you cant always put a price you want. Which is why you'll have the £1234/random prices

This is the exact problem.. number 2 problem with people. Why the fuck do you even call if you may not get it? And waste peoples time. And then you even OFFER A FUCKING AMOUNT... and then oh yeah well do a poll now and audience can decide which to buy. What in the holy fuck dude. Smh. People are retards. Ive stopped even going back and forth or answering with people like this. Either you have the cash and youre coming to look and make a deal or fuck off. Honestly

Facebook gatekeeps pricing by kbb or some book value. Often on odd or old cars the price is "too high" compared to the book price and won't allow the seller to post at their price. It's designed to protect buyers from gouging but has this bad side effect. Facebook needs to change this to only warn about pricing
Jack Bolen
Jack Bolen Pirms 18 dienām
When you list a car on Facebook Marketplace, it has a range of prices you’re allowed to list it for based on it’s assumed condition and Kelly Blue Book (at least here in the states). On many cars, that range is wildly different than the actual value. Had the same issue listing my old car, people aren’t doing it to be deceitful but because Facebook forces them too.
