Not against private sales, just no private sellers selling vehicles with my specifications currently.
I asked about it.. and he basically was saying "all of our cars go through inspection. brand new brakes and discs, new oil, whatever needs to be done is done. This car was a theft vehicle.. not theft recovery. Water based paint was spilled on the vehicle that came off with the pressure washer". He showed me a video of them spraying it off with pressure washer. Obviously it didn't come off as he stated it did ("it came right off easily"). When I called him out on it, he said "then they cut polished it and waxed it. That is why there is some white residue". First off, the car did not look anything like it was waxed or polished recently. In fact, it looked like it NEEDED one. Secondly, the "white residue" I pointed out to him was in the taillight seals, so there is no way it could be wax. I could clearly tell it was paint. Also, the car was keyed around entirely and he said "i touched it up but didn't want to paint it because it was original paint". I told him that he should have spot painted it and taken before/after pictures and video to prove the fact.
Basically, the ONLY thing he told me was "car had paint spilled on it". I
was the one that had to point out: paint residue in tight spots, "touched up" long key scratches along the car, an interior that smelled of strong paint, and the seats were dirtier than a car that hasn't been detailed in months. The oil they put in was also very watery. Did not look like fresh oil at all, but more so diluted oil. The asking price is 9k and I offered him 7. He said he could get 9500 "EASILY" at an auction, but needed to keep it in the lot since "no inventory".
- do not buy from here. scum who hides everything and lies.
