Hi,
Good luck to the seller, although I can't see them selling....
It would appear that sellers think that anything off a Capri can be sold at a premium price.
There was a brief discussion about the seats on this thread:

Dare you to ask him if that means the car would have to be driven from the back seat as both front seats are for passengers

I couldn't resist it so have asked " Do you think the mark would disappear if someone was just sitting in the seat for a while or would they actually need to be sending messages for this to make a difference please ?" :roll:

Although we scoff and make a joke from listings like this, it is very unfortunate the actual harm which listings like this do. People (whether experienced in Capri's or not), see these, think that all Capri items are worth a fortune, inflate their own prices, which then has a negative effect on the scene as a whole. And even when they realise that their item isn't worth much, there is still a reluctance to sell at a reasonable cost as the seller is convinced they are losing out then. It's all very unfortunate. It will only change if people begin to sell things cheaper. Come on, who's first?!
