Re: I think I'm about to cry...

I'm really annoyed at this bloke breaking nice Panda's though nothing we can do about it. If you look at his items there are numerous low mileage and really clean Panda's broken.

Sadly even people on this section will buy from this seller. I'm pleased to say I won't, out of (probably misplaced) principal.

This was one I found in our auction watch threads. Not looking for any more

Re: I think I'm about to cry...

I just can't understand it, pay maybe 200 for a car to break and you'll make some money (not much), pay 500 and you will make very little, if anything, especially after you have added in all the other costs, there just surely cannot be the demand, he even says he still has lots of the parts. Hopefully he will get bored eventually and move on to something else.

Re: I think I'm about to cry...

I refuse to buy, if he broke Panda's completely past it then it'd be acceptable but most of these look completely taxable.

Where does he find them all anyway? He must be buying them somewhere

Re: I think I'm about to cry...

i know its really sad. as said the profit made must be nothing.. mind you he does charge a bit for doors. before i know he was a panda killer i did ask him and he wanted about 300 for the pair! this was going back a while though.

Re: I think I'm about to cry...

I must confess and ask for forgiveness as my roof bars came from him.

In my defence it was an impulse purchase, saw the add, clicked buy it now and paid without looking at who was selling them.

I not only have bars but guilt on my roof *head hung in shame*

You've paid your debt by utilising the Panda Express for your alloys rather than paying a courier.

Re: I think I'm about to cry...

I'm contemplating breaking my 750, I broke my Uno 60D (but that was past it), and sold my Uno 60S and was heartbroken it went for scrap.

Pandas are worth more in parts unfortunately.

Re: I think I'm about to cry...

I too have purchased from this seller.

They had parts that I needed that I had not been able to source in the same used condition from elsewhere.

Exchanged several eBay questions and answers before agreeing prices and I went to collect.

Parts were exactly as described if not better, seller added some additional items at no further charge as well.

From my own experience, I could only recommend the Seller.

Don't think anyone's got an issue with this guy as a seller, the problem is he's stripping the parts from some very nice complete low mileage cars which should never really be a candidate for breaking. Gawd knows they can rot, surely there's enough low mileage cars with rust issues to strip nice trim, mechanical parts and interiors and even body panels from to sell, yet he chooses to pay more for good solid roadworthy cars and strip them instead!
Can't be a terribly sustainable business model either as every roadworthy example he breaks is one less customer to sell to!

MURDERER






That is all







I mean a twin sunny Selecta, the Selecta is a rare enough breed as it is, let alone a twin sunny Selecta.

Why can he break Fiestas etc, he would have more of a customer base also.

This is just about my ideal Panda. If I had any spare dosh, I would ask him how much he wanted for it... -- in one piece....

Re: I think I'm about to cry...
