Official Polo carpet mats and some winter tyres

Post by david.stark »

As I now have an Octavia estate, the mats for my Polo are up for sale along with the winter tyres in the parts for sale section if anyone is interested :D

Bump - Some snow around now so some may be interested to know I've lowered the price.

I've had absolutely no interest in either the tyres or the mats which are listed in the parts section on here, on Ebay and on Facebook marketplace.

Can anyone give me their opinion on the price and if you think its overpriced, what would be the most you would pay?

I know that not offering delivery can be a killer but delivery on 4 tyres would be costly and I've never had this much trouble in the past, always sold tyres quickly.

I don't think a set of used mats are worth £30 unless they're in absolute mint condition (the price of new ones is irrelevant), but a picture of the actual mats for sale is a must, people want to see what they're buying, they know what the mats look like when new.

Also, there's a brand new set on ebay starting at £21.00 with no bids (or £40 buy it now).

Thanks for the input. I've updated the advert on Ebay and Facebook already but forgot to update the one on here.

Any thoughts on the tyres?

They are a bargain, but not too many people near you probably consider bothering with fitting winter tyres, and that along with the "collection only" will work against you.

Can you not get a price to deliver these tyres from DPD etc, even packaged as 2 X 2 if that makes it cheaper?

It'll probably cost £40 to post those tyres - that's a big hit on whatever the sale price is. I did have someone from the Midkands come up from Nottingham to pick up the wife's GTI+ Bridgestone tyres when she got the PS4s on the day the car came.

Someone thought it was a big enough saving to come get 1 day old tyres that retail for £140 each for £210 the set.

Getting fed up now re the winter tyres not selling and want rid. So, SE owners, they are now listed on ebay as an auction with a starting price of £54.

That's 4 Hankook winter tyres for £54. Yes you read that right, 4 tyres for £54. Price includes 4 zip up tyre bags with carry handles.

Someone must be interested at that price surely.
