  1. Gumtree / EBay deal

    I've made an enquiry about advertising on Gumtree / Ebay, Asked about 10 car package and have been quoted this as a "special deal" 10 car "PLUS" package but I'll get 13, £398 +vat a month, Sign up for 12 months and its £350+vat, Sign up for 18 months and its £320+vat. Judging from some of the comments on here this deal isn't that special?
  2. I've done this twice as well and had no response.
  3. flipping cars youtube

    Has anyone noticed that when he's sitting in the Astra and the camera shows the dash it's actually a Citroën Picasso?? I know, I know, I'm a sad git!
  4. Interested to know peoples feelings as to where the trade is going and what sort of income / lifestyle the trade can provide if you decide to go it alone. I work in a franchised dealership and been in the trade since 1997, I'm not a superstar but think I know what's what, I graft and put the effort in and try to do things right andlook after customers. I've done okay but aware I'm earningsomeone else money and funding their Range Rover, nice holiday, watch etc. I've wanted to go out on my own for a while now but circumstances and lack of funding have stopped me, I may be in a position in a couple of months to give it a go but must admit, reading this thread has put me off a little. It wont be easy, will be very hard work I know but surely I can't be any worse off than I am now? if Itry and it doesn't work I could always go back to being a showroom monkey, if I don't there will always be the what if..........? What do people think?
  5. Bizarre comments by customers

    How did you ask him to leave? Just as you mentioned in the post or did you phrase it differently? I'm only asking as I wish I had the b0770cks to do this, I'm too laid back, comply with everything the customer wants and end up moaning about it after they have gone!
  6. Drop me a pm, sounds like the kind of stuff I'd be interested in.
  7. Another oddball!

    Oh Mr Frank, I bring you lots of customers!
  8. No, don't get that message.
  9. Another oddball!

    Years ago when God was a boy and i'd only just started out selling cars Igot told by an irate indian chap that i'd be reported to Omnibus!!!! I can't even remember what made him so angry now but nothing ever come of it!
  10. The error code we have got when we put it on the diagnostic was C2495 I'm none the wiser and would appreciate anyones help! Cheers.
  11. Do you mean Trade Sales in Slough rather than the Great Trade Centrein white city (which is now car giant)? And as for consecutive number plates at places, Well I know Motorpoint buy directly from the used car department at the manufacturer I represent.... and they must buy in bulk because the can retail them for cheaper than I can buy them for!!!
  12. Trade insurance for performance cars

    Call me cynical but a newbie asking a question about insurance and another newbie just happens to be able to recommend someone? Maybe I've been in this game too long but hmmmmm!
  13. Recently taken one of these in as a part exchange and considering keeping it as a smoker, Its got the dreaded error message from the SBC unit though. Anyone had any experience of getting the error message removed, reset, or a place to locate a replacement unit? Forums suggest that it can be reset, my local Merc specialist chap suggested going to main dealer and seeing if there is any goodwill available. Not sure about this though as it hasn't got any history. Any suggestions would be appreciated, even if you think the best thing to do would be to get rid andthrow itn the ring!
