I tend to agree, but if you are trying to sell a (lets face it) expensive thing then doing your best to make it look good doesnt seem to me like an unreasonable thing to do.

When I purchased my M5 it was presented flawlessly by the BMW dealer and gave me little option to chip away at the price.

As has already been said, it is a buyers market, and whilst I accept that cars without any chips may be rare there WILL be one out there.

If your car is immaculate you price it accordingly, if yours has a flaw, as they all have due to thinness of paint, then you compensate by taking money off.
A perfect car at a perfect price exists only on fantasy Island, being driven around by tattoo on his way to look for the plane.

Driving away wouldn't have sold a car which was the whole point
That's right, drive to someone 100 miles to show him the car, then drive 100 miles back to annoy him ?! Driving away would only show that you are annoyed because the guy didn't buy your car.

And so it ends. Mr tyre kicker texted me not doubt to meet my very reasonable price only to be told I had sold it!
I don't believe I have ever had so much pleasure sending a text.
It appears they had managed to hack the other seller off so much he told them where to go also.

When I sold mine I had one tiny chip after 13k miles - the clear protective wrap I had from robbie really did the trick - ok it cost me £1,300 Including the detail but I recon I got most of that back in the end.

Glad the OP sold his car for the asking price in the end

That's right, there's a right price and you can do a deal. So yes I would have driven off if someone was rude to me if I knew I could sell it for the right price.

Have you sold then or decided to keep or just waiting for the right buyer?

I haven't suggested he hasn't got a GTR, that's your party trick. Where is your old mate Resonate anyway?
