Default Buyers use due caution on black gated 05 on ebay

Just a heads up about a black gated 05 on Ebay. It was purchased last month for $73k and immediately the buyer has it back up for sale. If it were strictly an issue of selling for profit i would get it but the seller stated that he would not allow any inspection other than at his place. Hopefully nobody gets stung as the saying that keeps making itself true, "the cheapest exotic is often the most expensive".

Thats it. I texted prepared to pick it up this week but when I asked about having an independent mechanic look at it, he refused and said "someone would buy it". I replied that if I wasnt comfortable with not having it professionally inspected and his response was "NEXT LOL". I have screenshots of the messages but it just gave me a bad feeling. I am always leery of someone not willing to let someone have an independent mechanic view a car, ESPECIALLY a Lamborghini or Ferrari. I've sold many of both and always try to put the buyers mind at ease by taking it to wherever they so wish, provided its within a reasonable distance. Looking at the 5th page of his ebay feedback history makes me feel better about the decision to pass

That seems pretty darn shady. Hopefully someone doesn’t get scammed too bad. Though it would have to be really bad shape to get hurt too much at that price. Even if the engine needs a rebuild you still get a gated G for around 100. Not the best deal if it has accident history but not the end of the world.

Pass-if the owner is not willing to have a proper PPI then something is very wrong.

Ad says can have it towed within an hour drive, doesn’t sound unreasonable. Also offers his shop with a lift, also reasonable. Doesn’t sound too shady to me, although he may sing a different tune over phone.

Does look tempting and would check all the right boxes with me (glass hood, gated, etc). And his post is pretty detailed

Jr. Mint brings up a good point: call him and ask some questions. You can tell pretty easily if he is a flipper or not based on his answers.

When I bought mine, I called the owner and got a great feeling. Of course he was a member of this site, which helped a ton

This wasnt on the table when I spoke to him. Perhaps he changed his mind. Either way,his immaturity didnt sit well with me so I've moved on. These are toys, no more, no less. Its not worth risking a lot of money/headaches over a questionable car.

Agreed. The best revenge is not buying the car and watching as it sits for another 6 months minimum through winter.
