Possibly the worst interior ive ever seen, coupled with high mileage and a total lack of effort in the selling description. When I sell a call I go into as much detail as possible, lazy owner = lazy maintanence

Well, I waited 5 years for the right one, when there was more availability of quality cars. So you may be waiting a while....

I have always been more than happy to buy cars from lazy owners.
Their cars are often filthy and their adverts make it easy for potential buyers to ignore what they are selling.
However, being a non-lazy buyer, I have often found the effort of actually making the journey reveals a nugget which only requires some cosmetic work (cleaning) to bring out the wonderful vehicle underneath the grime.
My first S8 (D2) was a perfect example of this.
