Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry regarding my 2005 Civic. If you are interested in it you should know that it has never been wrecked or damaged, the SUV is in excellent condition. The total price that I’m asking including shipping and insurance fees will be $4,850.00 CAD. The vehicle is absolutely perfect, it has a clear title, has never been repaired, never been involved in any type of accident or had any paint or body work done! I moved to England, United Kingdom due to my work, where European specs are different from the Canadian ones and it costs me too much driving it legally here and also there is nobody interested in buying it here that’s why I am selling so cheap hoping to find a buyer since the vehicle is located in Canada and will be delivered as Certified and E-tested along with all the documents (the clear and clean title already signed off by me, owner's manual, 2 sets of keys, service records, and of course the bill of sale notarized and signed by me). I would like to use a third party service, for our both safety and comfort (they will take care of the shipping/payment).
A few words about the car:
- 2005 Honda Civic Sedan
- KM: 61,055
- Transmission: 5sp manual
- Exterior color: Blue
- Interior color: Gray Cloth
- Engine: 1.7L L4 PFI SOHC 16V
- FRONT WHEEL DRIVE
For further support do not hesitate to provide the buyer's name and shipping address, I'll open a temporary case and the company will contact you with all the information about this possible purchase.

Best Regards!

Hi,

As of now the car is located in Edmonton, AB. Here are the transaction steps: you will provide me your full name and delivery address/ You will be contacted by MoneyBookers with all the details about the transaction. You will make a deposit of 50% into a MoneyBookers agent account. The car will be delivered for inspection along with all the documents (the clear and clean title already signed off by me, owner's manual, 2 sets of keys, service records, and of course the bill of sale notarized and signed by me). The car will arrive in 3-4 days at your address for a 10 days inspection period. If you want to keep the car, you will sign over the title and pay the remaining balance. If you don't want to keep it, you will send it back to me and I will support the shipping back fees. MoneyBookers will refund you the deposit.

Best Regards!

Hello there,

Thank you very much for your interest in my used AUDI A3 2.0 TDI 140CV.
I live in England. The car is located in England, will be shipped in your country.
You don't have to pay additional taxes for this and the shipping costs will be covered by me. The reason that I want to sell my car is that I just moved in England...got married and I also found a good job here.
It's very hard for me to drive this car here because they have other regulations and this week I found a family car here which I want to buy it, an England model, but first I have to sell my car. I tried to sell it to a local dealer but they told me they cannot accept it in England because the wheel is on the left side.The car has been tested before sale.
The interior looks great and also the exterior. The vehicle is in good condition, has no technical damage at all, no scratches or dents, no hidden defects, no smoking. It's fun and robust to drive. Technical inspection and emissions testing is passed and stamped as well. It has title of ownership,cleared of any obligations or fees and comes with all the documents.
The car is now located at the shipping company warehouse in England and they will deliver the car directly to your door.
This is an extremely clean car inside and outside. This is a one owner vehicle that was locally driven and never raced.
If you are looking for an extremely fast and dependable car (this is what you are looking for) that is fun to drive you won't want to miss this unique opportunity.
If you need any further information please feel free to contact me. The price is $ 2.400 US

Sincerely,
Reiner Raginmund

I am the firsth owner of this car, I bought it when i was serving in 193rd Special Operations Wing (SOW), Harrisburg IAP , Pennsylvania U.S. an Air Force Base base near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, for my wife as a wedding gift, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions with a clear title free of encumbrances and liens.

I have dropped my price to 2800 USD (purchase price, since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before Jul 7th. When I will be deployed in Iraq with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home. If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your; Full Name and Shipping Address to open a case with eBay's Buyer Protection Program and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 10 days inspection period before committing to buy the vehicle. In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction.
