The For Sale section

I think there should be a rule that says that people must put a price if they want to sell something.

It may be a rule in the FAQ but they should put it somewhere where its visible. Like under the forum title or something.


The way I see it, were all always looking for something for our car. There is always some mod in the back of your mind you eventually want to do or some rims you eventually want to buy, And if the price is right you'll snap on it.

When sellers say stuff like "Give me offers", it puts pressure on the buyer to actually pull the trigger before they are ready. For example, I eventually want an m3 steering wheel, but its not urgent. If someone goes to me "make me an offer right now". The mindset goes from...being kind of interested to how much do i want to spend this second. It takes all the planning and organization out of it and it also puts off potential buyers.

+1.

I am new to the boards and am always on the lookout for stuff, but when there's no price, I just turn away and say eff that.

It definitely turns buyers away.

Its the Mod's jobs to delete post's that does not have prices attached to them.
