Not sure if there is a better location for this post, but here it goes. I'm looking for an Exige and I have a general question: What is acceptable protocol for a buyer to pay for a car found on this forum, or any other for that manner, if the buyer wants to set himself apart. What I mean by that is a seller with multiple comparable offers would likely take the one with the least risk to him. Ideally, this would be someone that immediately wires all of the money. One dealer told me this is how he buys most of his Lotus inventory off ebay, and their ability to pay quickly is their main advantage. But ebay has built-in protection for the buyer. So what is the acceptable practice for an "eager" buyer that is a reasonable risk balance?
