  1. Sad to see production leave UK,but is it because there is little demand for diesel in EU? It's only built as a diiesel, Or is it Brexit woes?
  2. On a couple of recent occasions, car sold to me exactly at what I bid as maximum.Just makes you wonder if things are still the same. What's your experience?
  3. Car auctions and proxy bids!

    I thought the maximum proxy bid was hidden, just per bid shown as required.
  4. Suzuki Vitara bidding war?

    Think it's gone off Ebay! Perhaps will relist?
  5. Mark Carney has frightened UK today, with his predictions of doom! Commercial property down 48%,interest rates 6%,and the rest. Will cars go up or down do you think, sales are all ready well down. My thinking is a shortage of stock will keep things pretty stable, car wise. What's your thoughts?
  6. Is this possible?

    While taking an old VW diesel Sharan in part exchange,,customer said she had had a new battery fitted at Halfords,and when she drove home car was running strangely. Next day she went back and battery was fitted wrong terminalsl connected.ie negative terminal to positive. Did car engine start in reverse rotation do you think?
  7. Is this possible?

    No joke, she said it did £800 of damage to alternator and electrics, they paid for. I did forget that it would be going backwards, somust have been rotating correctly.

  12. I wonder if they know the charging points, and access to them won't be up to scratch?
  13. Try to avoid taking cards.and have Pay Pal Here card reader, which is brilliant, except for cost.2.7%. The other new style card readers,Sum Up,I Zettle,etc don't want car dealers, we are like Adult services, ano no. Thinking of joining established Barclays or Llloyds,but they charge fee monthly. Any one using no monthly fee card reader?

  18. Customer arranged own finance through Zuto,they say all I have to do is deliver, get electronic signature, and money goes into my business bank account.I'm not FCA registered. Could it be this straightforward ?

    Customer changed her mind I'm afraid, but it all looked as if it was going through without anFCA registration.Pretty good really!
