Alex dude.. aye yei yei.. stalling is a bad thing now? You believe in God, Alex? If you do, then you get to leave this in his hands, because if it'* your time, it'* your time. No buying a new car will do it. He will just have that one roll over, or whatever he wants. Sorry for the Jesus speak here, I'm just saying an intermittent stalling problem is NOTHING to sell the car over.

Alex.. just for *&G, does your tach move when you are trying to start the car after it has stalled and won't start? I didn't even think about an ignition problem, and forgot to ask about that.

Sorry everybody, but my parents and I have made up our mind to sell the car. I have been wanting to sell it and get a newer car for some time now. It isn't all a matter of the car stalling out, I want you to understand that. I'm not that fickle when it comes to my cars. I just wanted to upgrade to a newer bonneville or perhaps an Aurora (Jim'* has caught on to me). It'* not like I will be leaving the club or anything. I will still be chatting with you guys on here and will most likely end up with another SSEi to show off. Justin, I can understand why you are telling me not to sell it, but I have other reasons than just the "stalling isssue." So, as of now I am going to put the car up for sale and am going to start looking for another car (prefferably a bonnie or an aurora). I would appreciate if you guys could support my decisions and what not. Well, I have a busy weekend, a date shortly and I have homework coming out of my ears.

I'm not going to resent you for selling your car, I just don't think it is smart [from a financial standpoint] to sell and buy cars left and right. I'll respect your decision, even though I would never do that, myself. It'* all good though..

Alright, thanks for respecting my decision Justin. I submitted it onto eBay. I'm not sure if it'* showing up yet. Maybe the servers have to process it or something like that. This is my first time doing eBay, if anybody has any suggestions let me know.

Got a linky linky yet? It'* on their servers instantly, but not their searching servers for usually 1-2 hours. The account you are selling on.. it isn't a new account, right?

Here is the link for it. It is a new user name because we have never done eBay before. If you have any suggestions on what to do on the auction to help it out a little, let me know.

A few things I must mention. For one, that new membership, with NO feedback.. I wouldn't buy a cell phone faceplate from that person. Hell, I wouldn't buy ANYTHING from a new member. You need to get your feedback up. Buy some ****.. pay instantly, all that good etiquette. Then sell a few little things [like the **** you just bought]. Ship the day you receive payment, go out of your way to get a good rating.

You should mention that the two-tone interior, and that it is rare. You should also get a few more pics in of the interior. Do you still have the factory air box? Make note that you will include it if anyone wants to put the car back in stock form. Most people buying a 13 year old Bonneville won't be looking for power. There are always exceptions, however. Put in the original head unit.. take all pics with it. Make note that the whole audio system is factory, or aftermarket.

You must also mention any defects INCLUDING the intermittent stalling. You should just mention "The car has an intermittent stalling issue.. it has been fine up until recently. Please email me if you would like more information on this issue."

Don't forget the auction timing. Sell it for 7 days so it ends on a Sunday. It has been proven many times that an item ending Sunday evening [6-9pm] sells highest. I have proven this myself, and it ends this way every time.

One more thing. Start if off at $100, and put a reserve for $500 less than KBB value [or what you want to get from the car]. Cars are a little different, but usually when an item starts off high, it usually turns me off, but low starting prices usually intrigues me a lot. Even with a reserve.
