Did you go and look at it first? We went to look at some before we bought, some of them were really rubish, glad we looked first, don't know if it doesn't say it in the description that you have to. I would give ebay a ring and ask them, do you have the number? I have one if you need it.

could just ask them why it wasnt mentioned in the auction and say you cant do it? How long is it til you will be picking it up, is it anything to do with the time?

Normally, most people are flexible, if you go and haven't seen the car and you'r not happy, they are ok about it

i have told the seller that i have intention of paying a deposit as i have heard horror stories of people paying a deposit and never hearing from the seller again.i asked her if was ok to pickup on tuesday and she said no problem as she is going away for the weekend.

"i asked her if was ok to pickup on tuesday ..."


You mean it has an MoT for £320????

As regards the demand for a deposit, my guess is that she supects you will have second thoughts when you actually see it so be very wary.

the buyer seems to be a time waster having won other cars and not paying either.
