  1. Eerily Quiet Or Is It Just Me?

    Yesterday we had the classic but we’ve seen one cheaper and the tablet comes out our car £4290 53k the cheap example £369079k By my reckoning that makes ours much cheaper
  2. AT Portal valuation not working

    Had it earlier. Whirring like it was trying to work but just returning no info....
  3. autogroup.com is for sale

    How much will it be worth in 2 years if I do 12,000 miles a year in it? How much will it be worth in 2 years if I do 12,000 miles a year in it?
  4. Suzuki Jimny’s

    We had one over the weekend 2003 only 36k and red Phone melted at £3,000 Not sure how much more we could have asked for a 16 year old Suzuki though!
  5. How do you pass time on dead days?

    that's the site I used. I would need to brush up again first though It gets very addictive, I even started watching some of the pro games online.....not that I knew what was going on
  6. How do you pass time on dead days?

    I started playing chess for a while which was great but got to a level where it wasthat hard (everyone was too good and 5 moves ahead ormore) so it got more stressful than the actual job. So I stopped.
  7. Target Markets...

    We need an explanation of how you can possiblychoose not to/avoidsellinglocally?
  8. Target Markets...

    Genuinely couldn't care less who buys what or how they pay. Just try and sell as many as I can each month.
  9. March sales so far ?????

    Haha no but it has felt like that this month....quiet days then they come in patches
  10. March sales so far ?????

    3 appointments 3 sales today Needed that - March back on track
  11. March sales so far ?????

    First dip of the year this week...no panic but it's not nice to be slow.
  12. Unit Size

    Same experience with council ownedunits. Found a couple in Notts that would have fit the bill before I moved here, but flat out rejected for motor trade use. Wouldn't even engage in conversation... This was 4 years ago...one still empty and one got let about a year ago!
  13. You can’t service a car without opening the bonnet can you? zero chance of rejection here
  14. 30 dayright to reject - burden of proof isreversed for this to apply ie they have to prove the fault existed at the time the car was supplied this isn’t us being arsey but the law. So if they can prove fault was present at time of sale then they may have a case but still probably not with such a trivial issue. did you service the car for sale btw?
  15. You must fight against the health check. Two examples - Vectra about 6 years ago, customer got home from collection and phoned saying Air Con not working. We agreed them to nip it back but instead they booked it in at Main Dealer....told them pump and condenserknackered and wanted to bill us £1100. I said no way that's crazy. Eventually after endless phone calls got it back and into local specialist. 1 £37 re=gas later system was up and running fine with no leaks or anything. Crazy. V50 last year sold down south to the coast. Guy took it into Volvo and they said it needed £3,700 to make it good. Car had only done 45,000 approx and drove lovely. I could not convince this guy at all so in the end I gave in, went myself tocollect it and drove it back to Derby 3 hours, MOT'd it next day.....passed with flying colours except for a very slightly cracked coil spring. Sold again 3 days later and the customer that bought it has since left usa glowing 5* review and his brother has had another one from us too! Can't give in to the main dealers, certainly never pay them. Daylight robbery.
