Think you only have 15 min to edit it, after that the mods will have to delete it.
How come he's not happy?

Very odd thing to request - you'd have thought he would have been pleased for the extra publicity

Suspect he won't want the financial background known. His asking is a fair start, considering his costs/time/poss warranty. Punter won't like it tho ;-)

Well, Bingomike wasn't forced to sell it - but the dealer made his offer, paid cash and invested (we're told) more money and time in it. He gets what he gets. Bingomike seemed content with his wad (he even knew the dealer's intended margin), the new customer could have paid Bingomike that amount if both parties had been a**ed fixin', advertising and looking.

Customers aren't happy unless they think they're screwed the dealer on a buy. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my customers, but I know they hate to think of me making a profit off them (as they see it)
