    Edo-spec Carsales Pics

    I made mention of this in the PF Discord on Friday, and have since come up with one or two more examples.

    Like many others recently, I've been trawling Carsales for some COVID bargains. I happened to notice how shithouse some photos have been and surprised at the type of car that was being sold with said photos.
    For exmaple, PF's most recent bandwagon, the Cayenne, seems to have a high rate of shithouse photos. Yet, somehow, Bazza selling his Falcodore can take perfect pictures.
    Nopics has been hunting for some Volvos and noticed this trend too.

    Here's a few selections I've found so far..


    One of the Cayennes I mentioned


    Another Cayenne


    Same Cayenne as the above. Yes, the entire screenshot was used as a photo for the ad.


    This one from a Volvo that nopics found

    I'd love to know how cunts take these photos and say to themselves "yeah, this is a great representation of what my car is".

    Even the basic description can be fucking hopeless sometimes.

    It'll just be listed as "Car", or "Voltzwagon" if it's a VW.

        These useless sellers are everywhere. There are even a lot of the dealers who are fucking useless. Upside down, duplicates, blurry photos of a badge etc.

        Or the ones who can't be bothered to even clean out the odd bit of rubbish and give it a wash and a vacuum.

        That TVR one with the glasses frame in the middle is pretty special along with screenshots including the weather overlay.

        And so the photos are a good indication of the seller and how much a pain in the arse they will be. I think that comes to your point about Cayennes having lots of shit photos. Bad photos, bad seller.

          Yeah, agreed. I'm dreading dealing with any of these cunts. Same goes for the ones who price their shit $5k over where it should be and claim "not desperate to sell, low offers will be ignored". You just know if you try to offer them something realistic it's going to go nowhere.

            Mine is people who put up photos of cars that are still full of Maccas bags and empty coke cans etc. Feel free to live in your own filth, but don’t assume that will attract others...

              It seems every second car on carsales is like this. Copy and paste vehicle overviews, 18 pics of the stock wheels and no interior pics, screen shot pics where even the original pic looks like it was taken by a meth addled monkey, or just fuck all pics to begin with.
              Im almost impressed with the amount of blurry pics, as even the shittest phones nowadays have some variety of shot stabilisation, it takes effort to make a photo that shithouse.

                They said similar about auto-correct too...

                  My favourite bit is where they used the pre-fab carsales spiel for the description.... A+ effort

                  Also, has anyone heard from edo in the last few years?

                    My favorite is when they take a close up of every badge on the car, but none that show the overall condition

                      almost as good as advertising a car with an engine or turbo conversion yet none of said conversion.

                      that and "too much to list".....

                        Car wash pics make me assume the person is too poor to own a garage, but even if they are, at least dry the car and take the photo at a park or something....in the daytime!

                        Then there is the pics with it still covered in foam, it looks fucking stupid and does nothing to tell the condition of the car, do they think it means it's well kept or something?

                        Pics that are a screenshot, jeesus, if you absolutely must get the pic from a screenshot (99% or the time there would have been a better way), then at least crop it so it doesn't look like a screenshot!

                          Maybe all the Cayenne owners have the shakes?

                            I've always assumed ad's for decent cars that were created with shit pics and/or pathetic descriptions were listed by owners who's wives have told them they need to sell that car.
