Also why is my post times wrong? Its about 5 hours behind gmt
27 coupes seems like a lot. Good time to buy I guess.

@goldmax , did you figure it out? I’m GMT-5 here, so I really cannot tell. I assume everyone’s posts appear to you in similar fashion?
There are very few changes to a user’s profile that we moderators can effect. @Alfanut , that’s why it looked like you could change this but it continually reverted to the previous setting.

If you cannot change your own setting then we’ll get Admin involved. Please let us know.

As for how to tell the good from the bad, if they haven’t been in an accident, they are probably all pretty good. Newer cars likely had all the bugs worked out of of them before leaving the dealership, whereas earlier models had “pit stops” to rectify a few things. Mostly, these cars come up on used markets because the previous owner didn’t understand what he was getting. It is a car that demands some compromises from its owner. Others just like driving the latest cool car and for them the joy has passed. As a result, somebody else has a tremendous opportunity. For those for whom the car was intended, the fun doesn’t end!

@goldmax , to change the time zone yourself, you have to (in the full version on a browser - I cannot advise you on the mobile or app version):
Click/ tap on “USER CP” on the top right of the page (under the rear diffuser of the red coupe image, beside “Sign Out”). You have to be logged in.

On the left hand pane of that screen, under “Your Control Panel”, find “Settings and Options”, and under that “Edit Options”.

Scroll about 2/3 of the way down that page, to “Date and Time Zone Options”, and choose your time zone from the drop down menu.

Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and click/tap on “Save Changes”.

Voila!

Thanks 4Canada for helping with the time zone setting, I have now adjusted to GMT which is great. It is rather well buried in the control panel.

Glad 4Canada got you on the correct path, Goldmax and you got it sorted.

Its a lovely car and looked after superbly with 7500 on the clock, I do however want that bit more and love the looks of the 4c.


Hoping to get one sorted this year.
Welcome Goldmax,

Don't listen to the enablers

However, resistance is futile.

Good luck scratching that itch.

Cheers,

Alf.

Well I prefer the looks of the hard top coupe. That's my starting point.

Here is my current car

I guess my Giulietta is worth 15k trade in, maybe a bit more private sale.


I only see it falling in value, buying a 4c would mean my money wouldn't just vanish. Does this make sense?

I did precisely the same thing. Sold my Giulietta privately to help fund the 4C so it makes perfect sense to me.
