  3. I would think with the hatch version you wouldn’t bother bringing it to Australia as you will end up losing on it. The 5 seat wagon may be a different proposition as it’s relatively new and very expensive here. the clubsport makes the most sense financially, but is it a car you want to daily drive?
  4. It’s not the case with all auctions in Australia. I buy a lot of things through auctions in Australia, and in every case (except for Lloyds) the hammer falls and the highest bidder pays for the item as per the auction rules. The way this isn’t the case is when the item is auctioned with a reserve price and during the auction the auctioneer clearly states that the reserve has not been met. If the highest bidder has not reached the reserve, the item is ‘passed in’ as unsold. This is where Lloyds seems to do it differently to everyone else. Lloyds doesn’t declare there is a reserve when there is one, and doesn’t mark the item as ‘passed in’. Instead the highest bidder is told they are successful at the fall of the hammer. Not until it comes time to pay for the item that the successful bidder is told that in fact they were unsuccessful and that they need to stump up more money. Mo other auction house does this! Grays has a different approach after the auction. They take a credit card number When you register and take a deposit after the completion of the auction. If this credit card cannot be charged, the auction is deemed to be void and they put the item back up for auction. This is why things go back up so quickly on Grays.
  5. I don’t think that’s the issue. I, and it seems others too, have successfully won an auction with Lloyd’s. Lloyd’s have then turned around and said the sale won’t happen because the seller wants more. And not just Porsches. Lloyds aren’t transparent with their selling process, and from a buyer’s perspective it’s a massive waste of time. Because of this I won’t bother with Lloyd’s ever again. While you might think that’s my bad luck, from a seller’s perspective this is a bad thing as the buyer is the one who makes the price higher....
  6. I use the term loosely I don't even look anymore, so not a good strategy from my viewpoint
  7. to be fair it's 50-50 as to whether the sale will go through with Lloyds
  8. I was watching Wheeler Dealers last night, it was the episode where they bought a Boxster S for £1,000. When you watch them pull it apart to repair, it’s amazing to see how rusty they are. The scary thing is that things like rusty screws and metal parts are put back as if it’s nothing. So if no one cares at that level, imagine what unscrupulous sellers would try to get away with!
