  1. Slowed for me now Mark, still a cracking month with 12 sold, couldn’t of hoped for a better start.
  2. If you are not mechanically minded yourself, you have to trust garages to fix the problem without screwing you. The problem is, a lot of these mechanics are useless, untrained and don’t have clew, their guess is as good as yours. When your problem isn’t straightforward and the mechanics want to play “parts darts” that’s when you need to change garages. Nothing worse than throwing thousands on a repair which doesn’t work.
  3. Exactly my opinion, I do miss the buzz though...
  4. Complete chancer, politely tell him to jog on.
  5. Don’t forget P40..... still got tubs if the stuff....
  6. You have 10 cars advertised 5 of which are CRV's ( they are hard work at the mo), sales wise, you are competing against yourself. My current longest car in stock is a 14plate CRV (9 months).
  7. The video is halfhearted, its rushed and lacks a personalised description, use the video as a platform for you to sell the car and your business.
  8. I would be checking to see if it was compliant at the time of purchase, maybe the requirements have changed ? Also, if ULEZ was a specific requirement the he equally should have shown due diligence when he said he specifically said he wanted to check for himself.... JXB, also surely after he received his first fine he should have been contacting you stating the car wasn't fit for his specific purposes, when did he get the fines? If he's been driving around for months since the first fine and has now just made his complaint...... If that's the case then he's taking the piss. Otherwise, as per Nik's post, its plain as day been miss-sold........ Offer him £500 to go away and see what happens..... Also, this email isn't stating that he requires a ULEZ compliant vehicle, he's just asking if it is...................
  9. I confess, I was banned for 6 months
  10. I’ve had two Range Rovers rovers suck 4K each out of me. I once bought a SL450 R107 that the bulkhead was so rusty the wipers weren’t even attached, that was a 5k repair 15 years ago. There’s been loads to be fair, it’s part of the job..
  11. I’ve got one, not had an sniff in 4 months, and I’m selling it for a loss. I had the flashing odo which cost me £600 at Fiat. Plus normal prep, it’s a horrible car... Don’t know what possessed me to buy it...
  12. my level of patience with the “last price” brigade
  13. I’ve used the following quite a few times in the past I these foreign non buyers. Mr Customer.... if you were in the market place for a parachute would you be looking for the cheapest ? No you wouldn’t, you’d be wanting to buy from the most reputable source with the best reputation, the best quality, the best prepared, the best folded to ensure you have a safe landing, it’s exactly the same when buying a car. Your priorities are wrong if all you are looking for is CHEAP.... if you buy CHEAP you pay twice.... As all my cars are “buy it now” via a nominal fully refundable deposit upfront, only pay balance when happy, nowadays it’s very rare I get asked. If someone does politely ask “is there anything I can do” then I’ll usually will give them £50 worth of fuel, they’re usually very grateful for the gesture.
