Akhtar we got a vw polo in px today it's done 136000 miles 1.4 petrol good history cam belt done MOT expires today and doubt it will need much to pass also bodywork has a few age related marks but at £500 it's yours. Spend £2-300 on it and surely you can get a wage out of it and trust me you won't get 1 from auction at that price. AutoTrader retail value coming up at £1875 and it's 5 door

If i had a £1 for every time someone told me that i would be retired by now !

Akhtar, you need to look at your whole business idea. To me, you sound like what most on here will term a 'plastic trader'. you are chasing easy money, but need to add value. pitches are full of astras, golfs, focuses etc. Mine is. But ive got a great local reputation, put a warranty on it, Fully Valeted it, offer finance and ive fixed it before its even marketed. And its on AT. So I can ask (and get) more than you. 

what do you offer? Facebook? £5 hand car wash and vac? you have to be (a lot) cheaper than me. So if you chase the same car as me you will be outbid or work for very little. Thats the hard facts of life. So buy something different if you want to Swim. Or do more of the same and sink.

Silver card, gold card, doesnt matter. Dealer Auction is real. you are looking for problems which dont exist. the problem is how YOU are trying to do business.

And Rory, I agree, he has pissed me off a bit too. 'please tell me everything I need to know to make millions' is how this sounds. I just hope this sorry story of akhtar the plastic trader acts as a warning to a series of amateurs who will look at this forum thinking its easy.

Great post, in particular the last paragraph.

Honesty is a hard pill to swallow  :unsure:
