  1. Yeah we have adjusted one and it's been okay (this one had already had clutch that hadn't been adjusted correctly), all the others have ended up needing a clutch.
  2. There is one right near me in Derby, but thats a good 50 minute drive...is that too far? https://volsaaengineering.com
  3. If you get a good finance company on your side (Close for me) then I really don't think there are any cons. Extra deals, commission and increased professionalism in the eyes of some customers.
  4. I've got space for 3-4 but not managed to buy anything this week. Got a reasonably price Qashqai from Sytner last week though.
  5. Yeah we had this once. Sold a Mazda 6 sharpish after in came into stock and before we had prepped and so the MOT was still to be done. They advised corrosion under side of body. Decided best thing to do was to tell the customer straight - there is some light corrosion picked up on the MOT and they recommend an underseal. He was fine with it and said if you get it done he will still proceed, which we did and everyones happy.
  6. Trade platers running late that end up going home in your car?
  7. I've had the odd scenario where I've collected a car myself, but for whatever reason been delayed getting back so office is closed and I've not had keys on me as planned to get there earlier so ended up doing my personal bits thats night in the car, probably had running gear or pool cue in the back, wonder what would happen if pulled over?
  8. I'm in the let them crack on with it camp, we've had 3 this year. One went fine with nothing reported at all One said the headlight washers weren't working (they were but they don't work when car is sat still - lol!). He also said the alloy wheels had been refurbished. We knew that as we'd done it at customers request. One said it had slight oil leak from sump seal (it did and we rectified) all cars sold and gone
  9. We’ve basically covered ex’s so got 9? days now to put some profit on the board quarterly VAT bill included in that
  10. 2 deals today - one on finance really busy day
  11. Scraped 3 proper deals this week had enough customers to do 9 but some strange enquiries We are on 16 for the month so all being well early 20s looks on as we’ve got some decent stock. Infact some of the strange enquiries have been on the mint stuff we have!
  12. Same only 1 on board this week
  13. We’ve had some really brilliant Decembers however last year was dire.
  14. Sometimes a good way to get odd parts like this is type Dacia Duster Breaking into ebay Normally loads will come up and you can just ring round them til you get the bit you want.
  15. agreed mate, hate scratching around early on so anything around or above one a day is great for us.
  16. I am not going to touch any Ecoboost or Powershift Fords, ever.
  17. Solid end to September here (1 Saturday 2 Sunday) And a nice start to October (1 yesterday 2 today) Ticking over nicely. The two today a £7k and £8600 and neither wanted to test drive, asked any silly questions or anything, volunteered deposits and left happy.
  18. 3 today - all in last hour and two in finance On*
  19. Picked up this week but last week was dead as it seems it was for most
  20. We pay for our own but can’t see the point in keeping a separate pot as it were surely that money is better invested in stock than just sitting there??
  21. We got off the mark with 2 yesterday, two more umming & arring and an appointment today so not bad at all
  22. Put it in your advert and then they cannot argue.
