Ed (@edbolian) has made a lot of exotic car deals. He hates the ways brokers insert themselves into deals without adding value but today he offers pointers on …
Word of Wisdom
It's funny to me(although it makes sense) that people who have money are just cheap a$$holes. I understand that is why they have money, but they are buying a car that nobody needs and they do something like that just to save a couple thousand dollars. It is absolutely classless and I'm sure infuriating. I'm happy to hear that Ed had the mechanic in mind and did it for him, but I'm sure it was extremely difficult to keep his cool.
Why didn’t you just call the buyer/dealership and tell them the guy is happy with $170k and don’t pay a penny over, connect them and pull yourself out of it. That asshole would’ve learnt a lesson 🤷♂️
Sounds very stressful. I hate people who don't keep their word when it's time to put your money where your mouth is.
Wow! If I was the person purchasing the car, I would have told the seller, “I’m sorry, but if you aren’t going to be a stand up guy and stay true to your word, I am no longer interested in the car.” Talk about lack of integrity on the sellers part.
The rainman movie .
Any place where I can buy a VIN wiki sticker?
Ed i wish you were my only salesman for any purchase for the rest of my life
My first job out of college was at a Mercedes Dealership in Seattle in the early to mid 90's. I was hired because I have a knack for ignoring money, and fame. I did meet a lot of people like you, however, and my impression is that you are a real douche. I learned there was three kinds of customer. Old money, New money, ( Like an NBA player or Football), and the kind of guy who makes pyramid-scheme videos. There is no need to deal with anyone but the old money, and the new. You are the unwanted.
Has anyone who watches this channel ever driven anything nicer than a M, Amg or a Porsche? I haven't.Edit: I got to drive an 80s Ferrari too, but it wasn't a special model worth maybe 30-40 grand
So the impression I get it from all these videos. all supercars break, all the time, no matter what. So you better have a lots of cash.
Wow, that's a crazy story, pretty low of the seller to renegotiate after the deal had been struck.
Obviously buy low sell high is the mantra of business be it the stock market or cars, new and or used.
I have a complex question and maybe some here can give some guidance, how do you determine which car to buy? I'd like to buy a Porsche. I look at old Porsches and I can see them going for 100k or more and I look at relatively new ones (a few years old) going for about the same.
How do you evaluate the depreciation hit on a new car vs a used car not know exactly how it was driven in the entry exotic market (aka normal not limited or track series Porsches)?
This from a guy who has only owned complete beaters or modest new vehicles.
This is the worst part about sales…it's one of the few jobs where people think it's 100% ok to screw someone over. "Oh…they just made a phone call" Well you own a phone jackass…why didn't you make it?
Hiding behind the wife, what a gutless move… Ed should've called the buyer and have him drop the offer 10k, no point having the buyer overpay if he ain't getting the entitled commission.
Trying to sell anything is the most frustrating experience anyone will ever experience in their life.
1% of buyers show up as advertised and pay the agreed upon amount 99% of buyers either don't show up, don't have the money, or try to continually renegotiate and talk you down on price
You were upset with $10k for setting up a transaction?
over all seems to be a decent guy, but hiding sales details is shady. transparency in market is needed for people to make informed decisions, hiding them so someone can make profit later is just shady business not a fan of that BS and why "invest" vehicles is a nonsensical thing. its just a bunch of rich guys scamming each other
I SINCERELY wish Ed was my friend in REAL LIFE. I wish I could drop by the house and have these good, articulate conversations about cars. God, my friends suck….Ed, are you taking applications for new friends? Sign me up
Why ANYONE would take a 5 mph bumper Countach outside in daylight is a complete mystery to me. It`s not just an eyesore,they make the car look retarded. The one that came to school in the short bus. And thats not how a Countach should have to live. Like the village idiot with a gross deformity
I hate those fucking people. Not just in the exotic car industry but in every business transaction, when they go back on their word trying to screw you out of the money you earned once the job has been completed.
It can really make your blood boil.
Looks like you sold the car for $260,000.
That was a piece of shit owner. You should display his name so everyone knows what a piece of scum he is.
Why not just list it online yourself (bringatrailer, ebay, etc.)? Don't understand how a broker adds value.
I wish I can talk like Ed.
Sounds pretty jewy.
Does he ever take a breath. I'm dizzy
Soi Boi says wifey has his balls in a jar. Face Palm.
If it was 2075 and teleporting had existed for 50 years Ed could STILL sell you a car. Lamborghini found themselves a superstar salesman.
Some of these VINwiki stories are absolutely insane ! Ed definitely has a way of keeping people captivated to the story. Keep up the good work 👍
