Newbies

I get a pm from someone wanting to know how much I wanted for my car because I have it up as a trade. Don't want to sell it which is why it said TRADE.... I tell him $5000. He replies back with "I wouldn't give you 2000 for it." What was the point of that???? Bashing cause that is more than you have to spend??? There's lots of cars on this site for cheap. You get what you pay for in most cases.... Guess he forgot what site he was on cause he just joined in July and has 0 posts.

I don't know many people that will sell their car for less than $2000 if it's a good car with damn near new everything... I bought the car off this board stock, no tint, no wheels, tranny sucked, motor knocked for $2000. And guess what obviously there were things that needed to be done to it that are now done. Hence you get what you pay for.

People should start asking double what they really want to sell something for, and then it would work.

Not all us are bad i dont even know what the newbie thing is i see some people that just joined and aren't newbies and some that have been members for years and are. But everyone that has answered my ads has tried to lowball and some even insulting me and my car. I think if someone is asking 4000 then offering them 3800 is just a smart buyer but offering 3000 or less is an insult

I haven't sold any cars, but everything I sold as far as parts from here were to people that never post or have zero posts.

There isnt a damn thing wrong with offering a low ball amount. The absolute worst that can happen is for the seller to say "no." On a good note...he could say "ok."

maybe there should be a minimum post requirement to use the classified section.

it might cut down on the bullshit.

Haven't you ever seen an ugly dude hit on a super hot chick? Same principle. He'll most likely get laughed at or slapped, but there's that one girl that's down on her luck, and looking for attention. If you don't ask, you definitely won't get a yes.

I think alot of people want you to give them shit...
I always post the price allittle higher so there will be some room for negotiating.
I can't stand it when someone tells you the nada price of your car (as if you don't know it) and expects you to sell your modded car for nada price or lower...

What makes me laugh about the classifieds, are all the folks that think they have the only fast car in town. They have a vehicle that doesn't draw in an ACV of anything higher than 3K, but they're asking 6k +.

Mustangs are so common, as well as the parts, and yet they act as if they've got the only mustang in the state or something.

what were we talking about again?

Every time I get lowballed I just ignore the PM or post, sometimes they will ask over and over again (I even had someone ask me to sell/trade them something way under value as a favor.... ), but more often then not they don't ask again. The people that are serious about buying and are willing to pay what it is worth will step up.

I especailly like the guys that pull the "Car is a 9 out of 10! Perfect Condition!"

and then in the middle of 5 pages of text, they say, "Oh yeah, A/C doesn't work, no CD player, interior is out of the car, engine is making a strange exploding noise, and there's no clearcoat left anymore"

"but other than that, PERFECT!"

a cpl thing i have learned in my time here...just because your a newbie, dont mean ya dont have a good deal of knowledge..and just because ya have alotta post dont mean ya have anyknowledge....
A lotta smart asses,and guys that make comments that are unnessary,but thats just them and makes them feel better..
you can usually shift thru the 1s that are knowledgeable and wanna help,and those that are out 4 a few more post and chaos..
I take rude folks on here usually lightly...dont let a few bad apples spoil the bunch....
And if all else fails settle at the track!!! If ya still lose,dont whine,just be a man and say...I LOST
