I wouldn't say credibility is the main issue... but from my last bike purchase experience i would certainly say.... this is wayyyyy too fast! and equally amazing and astonishing and great and.... phew!

Nutmello - that was a awesome way to seal a deal in under 6 mins.

I would not have had the 'nuts' to do that.

Like GTO said alls well that ends well.

Comeon Ferro.. no matter what cost someone picks up a second hand car there is always someone to say.. the price you paid is too high or you could have got it for X.X0 L . As long as the owner is happy hes got a good deal, we should leave it at that.

I think that price for one of the most Underrated cars in india is indeed a good deal.

Congratulations on a good purchase, Nutmello. I do not think we should be criticising you .
Hello All , there has to be trust between fellow human beings ,additionally we are all part of the same forum , lets have a poll of all the persons chastisising nutmello for his decision and most would say they would not let a fellow Team BHPian down for monetary gain , so why doubt the intentions of the seller in this case ?

I am not a idealist , but I do try ( most of the time ) to have positive attitude.
and to lighten this thread a bit - a photograph of todays purchase - at 1,45,000 , (I think) value for money .....
What say Speedy , Gogi & others

3. trust: yes, if we dont trust each other then whom to trust? how to do business?
4.in our day to day business, we sell lakhs of rs worth of goods even without seeing the buyer.an element of risk, passion for business etc counts.
5.photos: i do not know how to load photos.
6. car came with brand new tyres and battery ( just 2000km old)
thanks to all team bhpians for a great site.

Priceless statement! Amazing how much you can know about a person through online interactions and their posting.

Was definitely risky, but good that it ended well. Risky because the true condition of a car can only be judged by the person buying it. Good condition has a very relative meaning to it. Anyway congrats man & Please post some pics.

then it remains to see if nutemello did indeed take a look at that data? It would be beating around the bush so I wont say more. Also because he is happy with his purchase . congratulations on the purchase. Enjoy your drive.
