Bought a corsa from BCA, the history stamps are barely visible without stating on the description, no ticks to state what has been done and then the interior has defect e.g. door handles chrome missing, vents broken. Will they knock me anything off?

Yes definitely. 

I would aim at a grand off but will settle for £500 if they play hardball and threaten to close my account.

Sadly from my experience they will just point at the door.

Threaten them you will go to the press on the shambolic techniques they use to con people

The fat managers brain will kick in

Once I threaten them my day of earnings lost collecting as I did prior they soon will sort me out, hopefully:lol:

I bought one it just said said serviced to manufacture standards in the book and they marked that as a stamp was an on older car so I never bothered with a follow up but just shows it happens

Current stock

I bought a 57 plate Merc with 1 main dealer stamp.

Got the car back and checked the pack, full Merc history. Someone had missed one page in the book but it carried on from there.

Got a 59 Merc with no history.

Checked the pack - no history book but at least a dozen Merc service invoices in the folder (on a 60k miler)

Swings n roundabouts
