have you been folowing your posts??
$8500 in post #1, then lowered to $9200, then $8999 and last but not least, lowered to 8500.
did it ever cross your mind that a new buyer may want the pano top?
the top was never a $10k option.
For all of us who have been following this thread, there is no problem , except he just didn't go back to every individual post and change all the prices listed.
Forget those posts in the middle, only his last post along with an edited first post matters.
The numbers did really come down in sequence.
As far as the top, if anyone wants the car with the top, they certainly have had the oppurtunity to make a bid since the 22nd of Nov..
Seems to me he knows that, and is willing to sell the car without the hardtop if he gets a price that makes sence.
Your reference to the option price of the top when new not being $10K?? I don't get that, I went back and read all the posts, and don't see a reference to $10K anywhere, and he has never implied as far as I can see that the top was worth that.
Do the math, if he can get $1500 for the top, all he needs is $7000 from the car to equal is current asking price of $8500. Thats a business decision and perhaps a gamble on his part....
Personally, I wish I could make an offer right now, and my offer would include the top, I have been thinking about it...
