    I was just wondering where you guys advertise your exotic when you want to sell. I am selling my Lotus Esprit S4. I buy and sell cars a lot, but am curious what you guys do when it is time to sell. I had the car on ebay, but that is a joke. I was thinking of reposting it on ebay, but it gets old dealing with a hundred emails a day. Most of them were from fifteen-year olds who wanted to trade me their dirt bike or guys from Indonesia who would overnight me a bank check as long as I gave them my ssn#, address and all my financial info.

    I want this one to find a good home, just looking for ideas. Thanks.

    www.lotusespritworld.co.uk provides a classified section for both european and U.S. esprit's.

    also, are you on the turboespritlist on yahoo? Most esprit owners are. Good exposure for your sale.

    The most "qualified" buyers for me have come from Dupont Registry magazine ads.

    I think eBay and Dupont Registry is the best way to market your exotic.

    I would give Chuck Ligon @ exoticautobrokers.com a call. Chuck deals with folks every day that are looking to buy/sell this or that. My experience with him has been positive. Good luck.

    I will have to check out the tutrboespritlist on yahoo. I have been to lotusespritworld.co.uk. It is a great site, but is mostly UK. I didn't think the Dupont generated many real buyers, but maybe I will give it a shot.

    I do currently have my car listed on espritfactfile.com, it is great site for anyone who is a fan of the Lotus marque.

    Exoticbro, I haven't checked my email yet. I will check it later and be in touch.

    Chuck,

    Why do the cars on your website appear to be the cars that Harris Imports has in their inventory?

    Sean is gracious enough to let me post some of his inventory.
    there are a couple other dealers who allow me to mkt. their
    cars and refer buyers.
    For example, I will be posting an SLR when I get a more
    definite delivery window.

    I currently have my 328 for sale, listed in Ferrari Market Letter, Dupont Registry, and Hemmings Motor News and the most qualified leads I'm getting are coming from Hemmings.

    The best site for selling F cars is this very place. I sold my F355B in a couple of days by posting a free classified ad in FerrariChat's advertising section (FerrariAds.com)

    This place gets the most specifically targeted audience there is for F cars.
