I can't see why you object to a little ridicule when you do the following -
Don't state your name, your country of origin or that of the car's location. Where are the details or photos of this secret car?
You talk in this typical 'middleman speak' -" Email me if able to wire funds within 48 hours. Please serious buyers only". "Simply meant "have your money ready"."
If you were in Australia speaking like that people here would be laughing directly at your face. (Sorry but we are not at all polite in this colonial back water). Do you really expect people to rush to allocate funds for this magical 48 hour time frame? This unfortunately sounds like a plot in a bad espionage movie. Why would I have to have my money ready? Does the car disappear after 48 hours? Surely any 'serious buyer' would like to contemplate their potential purchase, or even negotiate.
I can assure you that those who bothered to reply to your post are indeed very, very 'serious' when it comes to their cars.
Would you consider rewriting your post with some details and pics? This is what we all like and you might just help your 'older friend' sell his 458VS!!
Possibly you could simply mention something along the lines of "This car is so reasonably priced that the first to see will surely buy"?
SLD7, you are not taken seriously here because you only come here to sell stuff, and you don't even do that correctly. Sales adds go in the sale forum, not in the owner's forums. We have been very lenient with your sale adds if you ask me.
