Had a laugh reading through this thread. I've found CL only good for two things - giving away stuff for free or on a couple of occasions found someone under the "skilled trade" section for some part of a project wanted to outsource.

My experience is based only on the people you find on CL in the area I live in (San Diego) but in general -

You will have lots of takers for anything that is free. As I just started working on remodeling my showers I was wondering how to get rid of the sliding doors which were in good condition. Put them up on CL - lots of inquires and was gone within the hour.

If you try to sell anything in most cases anyone who is interested will start haggling about the price. Some even email making it sound like they will only deal on their terms.

The you get people who advertise and ask for money (in some cases quite a bit) on items that I would personally put in the garbage.

People who claim to be interested in stuff who then never show up. I usually never go out of my way to be in for a CL buyer - always set a time where I will be also in anyway and don't really bother about whether they show up or not.

Occasionally you can find something useful at a good price or free but for me for the most part this has been my experience.

Better late than never, but why would you buy your daughter a BMW in the first place? I'm thinkin' she probably displayed some of these character traits before she got the car.
