    i had it for 28k and a dude that ventures on here called after seeing it and offered 27k i sms him back and said ok to 27k..

    he goes il get back to you and never did ?

    so i figured IF im going to let it go for 27k may as well put 27k firm.. but agree will bump it up to 28k again lol

    Welcome to my world when i was selling my car. I had offers from 22-26K. Some offers genuine, some offers from retarded people (22K) and offers to swap (Integra FFS).

    Its just how it all works these days. You put up 27K and they will always offer 2-3K below that. It doesnt hurt to ask does it? I know i wouldnt pay what someone was asking

    Just keep at it bud, someone will bark up your tree at some stage

    I always ask. You never know someones situation.

    I advertised my S14 for 18k, ended up taking 16 for it. Same with my WRX, adversied for 17k, had offers around the 15-16k mark.

    My current MPS 6 was advertised (at a dealer of course) for 32k no on roads.
    I chucked a very low offer of 28k on road, got it for 29k on road, new tyres, rego, stamp duty etc. If you dont ask.....

    Heres one for you.
    R34 i ended up buying - Private sale, advertised for 19k, i offered 16k cash that day.. he took it. He wanted a quick sale... If i didnt ask... I would have payed up to 18 for it....

    Current: 2002 Nissan S15 200SX SPEC R
    Previously: 2006 Mazda 6 MPS ,MY00 WRX CLUB SPEC EVO IV Hatch ,97' Nissan S14A 200sx, Nissan R34 GT-T, Nissan S12 Silvia

    yea some ppl could find it strange that i could go to a mps3 my WIFE being one of them ..

    just today she said to keep my car for a while longer and upgrade properly in 2 or so years..

    There is a mps3 SP cosmic blue on carsales wtih 25,000kms that i could get for 27k.. only prob being it has a crack on the front bar..

    i have owned 12 cars so i dont tend to get attached to them and mine being on 82k if i could doing a swap/trade and not put $$ on top and get something with lower kms i would consider it..

    i wouldnt get a mps3 in any other colour than cosmic so yea it hinges on that aswell..

    maybe i should keep my for 2 more years and then sell and buy a gen 2 mps3

    i can understand what you are saying with people that have a 'firm' on the price personally i dont call those type of sellers or waste my time checking the car out.. right or wrong who knows lol

    of course it is a free country and ppl can ask what they want..

    same with my a year ago guy in qld had 30k on it i told him absolute best i was willing to pay was $28250 and he took it..
