  1. Same apart from a couple of Decembers
  2. Yes sorry I think you make a great point too.
  3. 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?
  4. Finding similar - very little through eBay
  5. Guaranteed to last longer than his first one
  6. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F123825348872
  7. Done a couple and maybe a couple in the pipeline but truthfully we’ve not really got started yet.
  8. I agree and also we seem to have lost some models that sold well or their new equivalent has died Fiestas 2002-2009 cracking sellers - new ones can’t shift (see other thread) Ibiza and Polo - again can’t shift now unless cheap as chips Celicas Vectras and Astras - laugh if you want but we shifted loads. Hate insignia and the gearboxes in them and the new Astra’s 307s great sellers, 308s NOTHING but problems Xsara Picasso brilliant cheap budget motoring and rarely any issues. C4 grand Picaaap maybe worst car ever made l. Cant buy a load of v50s, s40s or v70s with the 1.6d as have too many issues don’t want any ford auto power shift or early 2.2 engine so rules out a lot of those and Mazda 6s. Micra - k12 flew out, newer ones stick, same with Yaris probably loads more examples if I sat and thought about it 107/c1/Aygo seemed to fill the void left for starter cars when fiestas Yaris micra died a bit they now seem expensive , need to be sub 3k and also seem to be a decline. Also used to love a Tigra or a 206cc. But won’t touch 207cc. And Astra twin tops are wank Used to sell loads of Saab’s but now hard to source.
  9. The lawgistics warranty booklet largely mirrors the CRA anyway so it's not really putting you in any worse position but certainly increases perceived professionalism.
  10. Last 3 months we are still 60% diesel 40% petrol - which surprised me as I thought it would be roughly the other way round...
  11. Managed to do 7 this week which is best week for a while. Bought a few good ones too so hopefully carry on for a bit.
  12. because the perception is auctions are full of crap? We say sourced from main dealer, part exchange into us or from public, whichever is true.
  13. We had it work ONCE...Honda Jazz....but that is recognised issue, judder between 1st and 2nd.
  14. Unless it’s awful we leave engine bay and explain why. Got sick of people saying it’s been cleaned to hide leaks or whatever Probably once a month someone says they’d prefer it clean so we explain we are happy to do so for collection now they have seen it ‘as is’.
  15. Think we all need to start renting out Audi A1s
  16. Last year we did 2 Easter Friday, 1 Easter Saturday and none Sunday and Monday this year EXACTLY the same so far, so I’m closing fully tomorrow and going to the cricket and Monday I’ll keep the phone on but you will really have to twist my arm for an appointment!
  17. Yesterday we had the classic but we’ve seen one cheaper and the tablet comes out our car £4290 53k the cheap example £3690 79k By my reckoning that makes ours much cheaper
  18. Had it earlier. Whirring like it was trying to work but just returning no info....
  19. 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?
  20. 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!
  21. 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
  22. I started playing chess for a while which was great but got to a level where it was that hard (everyone was too good and 5 moves ahead or more) so it got more stressful than the actual job. So I stopped.
  23. We need an explanation of how you can possibly choose not to/avoid selling locally?
