  1. Hi all does anyone know the formula to get from v5c2 (green keeper slip) doc ref no, to main v5c doc ref no? think they are similar numbers iirc? thanks
  2. Afternoon all, I've got a 2009 XC90 active in stock which has a rip in the 'pleather' side of the seat, very common i hear. Been quoted £100 by a mobile car upholstery guy, but just wondering if anyone has any hacks/tips to sort this cheaper than that? Car is worth 6k ish, margins are precious these days as we all know so slightly hesitant to spend that kind of money! Cheers Jack
  3. Does anyone know how the supermarkets get the bulk of their stock? Have they got direct deals with the leasing companies and finance houses? I know they get a percentage from auction as I'm chummy with a cargiant buyer at Blackbushe, but never asked him about their business model really.
  4. Thanks, will cross this bridge when we come to it, might be back in touch as and when. Cheers
  5. Sitrep : took a big hit here and sold the car to another dealer. This was 2 months ago. Car still has not sold. This car has now been in the trade since August 2015. A red one has also been on autotrader since I first put mine up back then and has had its price slashed by £1000. AVOID AT ALL COSTS AUDI TT ROADSTER TDI's !!
  6. So I have an A3 with a windscreen chip which is just off from the drivers line of view - had it repaired today by a mobile guy and it's much better but it's still quite noticeable in my opinion and gets on my nerves as I'm a little bit of a perfectionist . Would you leave it if you were me ? What do you tend to do?
  7. Right so in the last week 3 or 4 have sold that i've been tracking think the weathers got to that stage where we are getting nice days now. So here we go http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201604122897552/usedcars Ta for the advice Jim, bottle of something coming your way if it's gone within 3 weeks today, sound fair? Not sure about wrong wheels ? Personally I think they are nice and wouldn't want any bigger than 18'' as the ride gets crashy when you have pencil thin tyres! Quite a few out there are the sport trim sat on 17''s so it could be worse! Interesting points, although weirdly, and i'm not just saying this, i prefer the 2.0d in this to a 1.8 t or 2.0tfsi. I like having the oomph right there and not having to rev the nuts off to progress swiftly.
  8. Will take on board all these points, thanks. What gets me though is that I am actively monitoring 4 others around my pricepoint and they've all been sat for months too. Wouldn't mind so much if i was the only one but seems I'm not! Had a lady interested late last year, then dieselgate broke and she said she didn't want the risk. Cheers vw!
  9. Yes ad was written by them, i'm going to give it a few weeks for the weather, then re-do it myself I think. This is the one from the car supermarket group that they had at 15.800 in August and now 14398 every week they are chopping more off it ! Cap says should retail at 15!! http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201512189550867?price-to=15000&model=tt&search-target=usedcars&radius=25&page=1&onesearchad=used%2Cnearlynew%2Cnew&make=audi&postcode=rg414dr&price-from=14000&sort=default&quicksearch=true&logcode=p Very interesting, CAP April says 14250 for mine clean, then cap blackbook live revises that down by £600 or something crazy.
  10. This is mine. Not my advert (long story, gave it to a friend with a more established pitch to try and sell but it's still advertised there). http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201510187945934?make=audi&maximum-age=up_to_4_years_old&fuel-type=diesel&body-type=convertible&onesearchad=used%2Cnearlynew%2Cnew&sort=default&postcode=RG41%204DR&radius=1501&searchcontext=default&model=tt&maximum-mileage=up_to_60000_miles&page=1&search-target=usedcars&logcode=p
  11. Thanks for suggestions. Is there a manic rush for convertibles when the weather gets nice ? I do hope so. If so when does this tend to arrive ?
  12. Would an ebay auction be a feasible route ?
  13. The only thing that would cheer me up is to have it sold and never see it again ! Took a gamble as normally do much lower value stock, thought i'd shift it in the indian summer late last year but it's been nothing but a pain! So lots of capital tied up and just depreciating
  14. Hello everyone, I have been sat on a TT TDI S-line convertible (12 plate) since August last year, and for one reason or another, it just gets no interest what so ever. It's not just mine either, I keep an eye on the others around the country, a big car supermarket group has sat on theirs for 6 months and just lopped the best part of a grand off their asking price over the last couple of weeks. Mines very reasonably priced. So, what would you do ?
