    A offers to buy a car from B for £4,000. A leaves a message with B that wants the car and will pick it up the following day.

    I understand that the message was an offer; however, although silence alone cannot amount to acceptance, could B's presence at the house the next day indicate acceptance by conduct? If so, if A subsequently changes his mind as the size of the car did not cater his needs, what would be the legal position of A? (would Re Selectmove apply?)
