Time to hide the keys to be on the safe side. Could be gypos as afcneal says.
You could always try your luck though and say you want 3.5k for it. He´ll be sour when he drives past again and sees you replaced it with an M3 for his 3.5k.

By definition, Gyppos are transient so any newly arrived would not necessarily be know to you. Smartly dressed with dodgy teeth = dodgy geezer where I come from!!

slightly against the run of the thread but if you've got family in the house I wouldn't hide the keys, hopefully it's nothing but if someone's going to break into your house to get the keys for your car and then can't find the keys, what's to stop them from going a step further and coming up to rough you up to get hold of the keys. Just a thought but I leave my keys downstairs at all times, not anywhere near the door or in full view but if someone does break in for the keys then at least they'll spot em and hopefully bugger off without causing actual harm to the Mrs or me.

Hopefully it's nothing though mate :thumbsup

Bloody pikeys

To be fair he might just be a enthusiast wanting a nice car! If your car is genuinly mint then fair enough! Iv had someone come and ask me about my old Audi followed me from guisbrough to ayton as well (4 miles) to ask me about it for his son he was in a new passatt at the time and was/seemed very genuine! Offered me 5k up front saying he making the offer on the Basis that he followed me home along country roads no one was infront of me and I neve went over 60 and was gentle round the bends and the car was immaculate and no smoke from the back and wanted to know the miles and mot as well

Well if he can't get hold of your car keys at least you can expect him back in the near future offering to Tarmac your drive on the cheap :thumbsup

This has dodgy wrote all over it,there is enuff 328 bimmers for sale in the ad's and i defo wouldnt let no 1 in my house to try give it a scope over even if it all seem's ok but then again once they see my pooch they wouldnt want to try...

Does no 1 watch the real hustle on how easy it is to rip people off.aint hard to hire a half decent looking car and just pop by someone's house to scam them....

Ok this might be all cool but id defo wouldnt take the chance and id be watching everything coming and going in my street but then again i have a couple nosey neighbours that would notice if anyone came near my car whilst i was out without the car..

And if he does come by with money to buy your car make sure you check the note's as could be fake

I always check notes and inwouldnt let them in my house full stop the paper work gets filled in outside after the money has been handed over! If it's pissing down in the car or garage providing everything worth nicking is in the shed locked in my metal fireproof container (nicked it from work) which it normally is unless iv been lazy and just carted it into the garage

Think you guys miss-read the OP's first post! I think it could be legit. Whats the worst that could happen if you go to his house (obviously take a big friend with you) you might make a good profit and be able to buy a nicer motor!
