  1. Both of those from dealer auction
  2. I've not found buying that bad. Yesterday picked up an 11 207 1.6 HDi allure for £2300, 43k on the clock, 7 stamps. Or is that too rich for some Then lucky enough to be offered a 2013 Clio 1.2 MediaNav in black with 35k, full main dealer history incl cam belt change. That's a regular customer of mine. Then finally a 2012 1.2 Fabia estate today with 54k on....probably paid strongest money for that at £3k. TBH I've got more cars than ever, forgot where I've left some of them EDIT the Clio....WBAC offered £4300, Cap clean was £3900 which I was happy to offer.....WBAC then knocked it down to £3650 due to 2 stone chips (car is 99% mint) so customers more than happy at £3,900.
  3. 5 this weekend (one cheapie though so 4.5 really )
  4. the no engine story has made me genuinely LOL. Imagine the ribbing/banter you'd get for that...
  5. solid but unspectacular lost 3 deals to finance declines and 2 changed their minds....add those 5 on though and we'd be flying.
  6. Good start 3 on the board 3 pending tomorrow plus any new enquiries found restocking easy as well
  7. They keep going on about driving more buyers/leads etc but there is a finite amount of car buyers isn’t there? they can’t magic an extra million deals for us all to share around. im now at £2300 a month but may well reduce it to around £1500 before Christmas
  8. Get a really good repair and keep your trap shut, imo.
  9. Yes a good/thorough schedule of condition is vital.
  10. If the car is nice as you say, get it done properly. Our local guy is great sometimes you cannot tell at all and it's less than £50 I think.
  11. We are 4,500 sq ft and can fit around 30-31 inside, maybe a couple more. And room for 5-6 outside. Very lucky with this unit at £1150 a month with no rates, only downside is not perfect location, lovely village but we have no main road frontage.
  12. I'm a morrisons man mate, love it.
  13. I never check the price of anything in the supermarket, just cannot be bothered & never collected a point in my life.
  14. You just can’t win sometimes tell someone you’ve put a brand new alternator on and it’s ‘omg is it unreliable then? What will go next??’
  15. You can probably clean them to improve. Crap and dust etc collecting in the mechanism sure I read a good clean and spray of wd40 can return decent results
  16. Yes, felt a right brucey bonus at the time. Then it went to 20%
  17. They put it down to 15% for a bit during my time in the trade, so last 8 years
  18. Same apart from a couple of Decembers
  19. Yes sorry I think you make a great point too.
  20. Younger generations just not using eBay perhaps I still use it as always had an account and just find it easy but a group of my friends found it highly amusing I still ordered things from eBay and not Amazon or elsewhere?
  21. Finding similar - very little through eBay
  22. Guaranteed to last longer than his first one
