  1. So when you give the lender a link to the car and the price is £7500 why would they lend another £499? This sounds too messy for my liking. And especially for the open section of this forum. I'd have to say: no FCA registration - no car finance.
  2. Car finance or a personal loan? Can you be very clear about this. Two very different things.
  3. Might be yes. They've fitted it the wrong way and now the floggle control unit is feeding wrong information to the MCAS.
  4. Boys (and girls), where did that crystal ball go? Who has it???
  5. BCA HP team they are called. They will send you a clearance email almost immediately
  6. I personally think it's dirt cheap. Also, why are you paying £2000? My bill is less than half that.
  7. For me personally the answer has always been NO! I can always do more and better. And I keep trying.
  8. Well, tell them the truth: I have gone the extra mile and have spent a fair bit of time (and money) to research the service history of this car, I paid BMW their £1 a minute on the 0906 number, bought a duplicate service book and personally completed it with all the VERIFIED service information I could find and you now have a book to use to enter the service information during your ownership. Incidentally the parts desk at my local BMW dealer is so ashamed by the hoops they have to make me jump through when ordering a duplicate book (V5 in my name or an auction invoice as a minimum proof of ownership) that they ask me to buy one online (eBay) and bring it in to be stamped!!!
  9. Tradegirl, call them again tomorrow. Tell them you've just bought the vehicle and want to check for outstanding recalls. Then casually ask them to tell you the dates and mileages of these 2 services. Buy a blank BMW service book from eBay for £20 or a generic one for £4 and a Dymo label gun. Enter the details of the two services in the book yourself with the correct date, miles and with the Dymo gun type the dealership name, post code and phone number and stick the label there. Don't pay those mugs £54 for 2 minutes of admin time!!!
  10. Love a bit of branding: M Sport badge on ES BMWs S-Line badge on any Audi and R badge on virtually anything else VAG AMG badges everywhere on Mercs and Brabus badging on Smart
  11. Sell it with 1 month 1000 miles limited warranty. Essentially meaning that it will be covered on it's way to Dover if anything major gives way which seems extremely unlikely. This way buyer gets a small amount of peace of mind and you get a lot of peace of mind once that 1000 rolls on the odometer.
  12. £2.99 Febreeze on carpets and cloth seats (which I don’t often have)
  13. When you look at it this way AT has always been the cheapest ad platform. IF used correctly of course.
  14. Proud of you Mark. There is no point to know that an advertiser out there works well and not be signed up to them. It’s expensive but if it works then it’s worth the stretch
  15. Yes I did ask them when I went on the paid package for the first time in 2017. They refused any notion about fake leads of course (why would we do that, they said) but I am 100% sure there was something untoward going on. I know Rory is very pleased with their performance which leads me to believe that they take from some dealers to give to others. Just like WarrantyWise did. This is even worse than AT who simply take from all dealers to give to their shareholders:-)))
