If I have time to spend a few grand on a vehicle, and expecally if I want to put in a lower offer, then I have the few minutes to chat on the phone to get more information IMO, to see if its something I want to peruse further. However I don't have any problem with someone PMing me questions or anything, but I just don't respect the lowball offers that way, sight unseen. But then again im a very honest seller, sometimes way to honest.
