    Ever sold something ridiculously underpriced by mistake?

    I just did

    Listed my "old" Nokia N95 8GB mobile on ebay - in near new condition as it was broken then repaired, all boxed etc. Listed it for the sort of prices that I'd seen them go for on Gumtree. That'll teach me!

    I had 3 messages within the first 2 minutes, and the phone sold with no questions asked in 4mins 25secs!!

    Just looked on ebay to see what others were going for and I underpriced it by about £80

    Ah well, being an honourable bloke I'm not going to try to wriggle out of it, but boy I'm kicking myself now I should have stuck another £40-£50 on it and would still have got a quick sale!!
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    I sold a Parrot MKi 9100 for 35 quid the other day

    It just had the blue box + remote replaced with brand new ones too.

    £100 posted.

    cheapest equivalent I've seen on there now is £185, but near identical ones (i.e. almost new) are going for up to £275!!

    I'm laughing about it really, as I'd get quite annoyed if I didn't

    Good job it was my spare phone and I was only selling as it's just dead money if I leave it in the drawer any longer!

    I won a set of 205 GTI alloys for my old 106 for £50 with brand new tyres all round. Turned out the seller didnt like the price they sold for and reported us! What a clever lass! lol.

    Still never did get them
