ok thanks, more picture's and info would be great.

i await the reply

whelan

------------------------------------------------------------

and i got this


Hello,
The deal will be made through EurTrans company:
First of all I will need your shipping details (name,address,town,postalcode,phone) to start the transaction.
Once the car will be in their custody, EurTrans will inspect the papers,keys so they could make sure are shipping a legit car not a stolen one,and will contact you with further information regarding payment.
I will insure the car with full amount so both of us could be protected if something go wrong during shipping or drive test.
After you will recive it the company will allow you 3 day`s for inspection, if you see a scratch or you dont like the car you will contact the shipping carrier and claim the insurance policy that i will pay once i start the transaction.The insurance policy will obligate the shipping company to come at your address to get the car,same moment they get the car from you they will pay you back the full amount that you have sent them.
I will pay for shipping which takes 3-4days.

Best Regards,
John

---------------------------------------------------------------
so what do you think?

I did say I wont give any bank details ect until i see the car and V5 in his name plus I do a HPI check. so im awaiting the reply from that.

the reason im suspicious is that these cars go for well over double what he wants for it? Click here for example

Personally, I wouldn't go for it.

Seems

a) tedious
b) probably too good to be true
c) dodgy (see the "EurTrans" website)

ok what info would you like?

I will deal in cash with the company when i see the car, ok?

Thanks

OH AND GUESS WHAT ELSE?!!?!?!?!?!?

I EMAILED A GUY OVER
THIS CAR

AND GOT THIS EMAIL BACK:


Hello again ,

I have worked in Uk for the last 2 years and I've purchased the car there. My company wanted me back home, so currently I'm in Italy . I've bring the car home with me.The car is now located in Roma, Italy.I decided that is better to sell it because I don `t use it anymore (the wheel is on right side and is very difficult for me to drive it here) and it `s a pitty to keep such a car and not to use it.
I realize that is a cheap price for such a car but my special situation makes me do things that I wouldn't do in normal Circumstances.I've wanted to register it here and keep it for me,unfortunately import taxes and European regulations made me change my mind.
I would like to use a shipping company for this deal, the process is very easy and I have just bought a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee and this is why i know how it works.
This company will handle the delivery of the car and also they will handle all the registration papers. If we will use it you will have 5 days for testing the car before deciding to buy it. They will also give me the payment after you will decide to keep the car.
I will pay delivery! The delivery time will be arround 3-4 days and the car will be delivered at your home address. In this time you will receive the tracking number of the transaction so you can use it to check the status on the company website.
Please e-mail me with your decision and also your full name and address!!
Thanks
