As above, The buyer's going to find out when they come and collect it, then knock the price down...

As above, dishonesty and an ebay auction car listing don't exactly go well...

How can you possibly say the body is sound? The rot is easily within 30cm of major structural points.

Actually, I'm getting very annoyed just looking at the advert. You asked for people opinions and they told you the issues with it, now you're deliberately misleading people in order to sell it at a price you think it's worth. I hope whoever happens to win the auction knows what they're looking at, and doesn't get fooled into spending good money on something that isn't worth it.

it runs drives and has mot and is road legal all that matters

That's not all that matters.

You know that the car is unsound yet you have listed it as structurally sound.

Just because the car has a valid MOT does not mean that it is safe for the road. 

 

This will go two ways, The winning bidder will turn up, look over the Mini and probably won't want to take it leaving him/her angry at the wasted journey especially if they have travelled a long way or the winning bidder will be someone who does not know Mini's, won't notice the big nasty hole in the inner wing, take it and then get a massive repair bill in order for it to pass it's next MOT.

 

You know the car has some serious structural issues and yet you listed it as being fine.

 

Nothing pleases me less than people who knowingly sell a car that is unfit for the road without disclosing that information to the buyer.

 

It's wrong

Unfortunately there's a 3rd option, the new owner fails to notice the holes and it causes an accident killing or seriously injuring someone.

No one buys and pays for a car using paypal. Everyone pays cash on collection unless they are entirely stupid. But even paying with paypal, they could submit a claim 90 days after payment for item not as described and get their money back.

 

I also sense a case of "bidding up" using another account.

 

100% bid activity with seller, 3 bids withdrawn/cancelled in last 3 months!

You lost money/were screwed over because you were stupid and spent too much money. You should lose money because you were the one who spent it, that doesn't give you an excuse to knowingly attempt to swindle other people out of theirs. Why does £100 deposit make it 'cool'? If the buyer knows his minis, he will tell you where to stick it, have wasted time and fuel and still be down £100. If the buyer doesn't, they've been robbed of £1270 by someone who knows for a fact the car isn't worth it and won't pass an MOT, and has stated in writing that the body is sound. Fair is fair, you're not being fair. I never claimed the person who sold you the car wasn't a disgrace, just that you are. And I stand by it.
