i would have come to see it in person but due to the nature of my courier will come for the collection after the whole fund is cleared into your account and also do the signing of the paper work.Get back to me with your bsb,account name and number so that i can proceed with the payment asap as i will like it delivered to my place before my arrival.

Hi I have had so many emails and I am sorry I do not negotiate on email. I will only negotiate with genuine buyers that come and view vehicle.
