    It’s overpriced crap, had it thought it was more designed for main dealers and car supermarkets, it was telling me to buy insignias etc which aren’t great sellers for us.

    "I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes....." Sorry, couldn't resist it! Agree totally, its all about gut feeling me. You cant teach it and there are no rules.

    Its that feeling in the fingers time again isn't it . I had Autotrader guys who think this stuff up here last week , looking at how we decide to buy and why we choose what we do , They left very confused and quite demoralised in their thoughts , they realised a computer didn't have that feeling in the fingers . We had a game where they chose 10 cars to sell and priced them using their system , and i chose 10 cars . We then researched trade prices at BCA and what would make money . The were astonished at the prices and how far out AT was , but didn't understand it changes daily too " faster than computer thinks " They then advertised 10 cars on my AT system and I advertised my choices , two days later I won hands down in the results of search patterns. We sell cars that are not available round our area but people travel to see us , we also sell cars that are popular round our area but never cheaper . Its that finger feeling that cant be taught , we all or most of us have some sort of finger feeling version don't we and its far more accurate as its time served over the years . The sale is down to us .

    I recommend looking at dealers in your area with similar stock and try and price similar some time pricing software can be far to high or low .

    We had a Panda 100HP. Had it for about 4 months in total, was a Cat D - so was expecting it to stay a while, but so much fun to drive we ended up putting about 3k miles on it! - Each eBay listing got over 1500 views. So, that makes 6,000 internet armchair 'buyers' before someone bought it. Also had a BMW 316i SE Auto (NEVER AGAIN!) - Had it 9 months. Each eBay listing got over 500 views from the internet expects. Both turned a healthy profit, and no negotion so can't complain! - Got sick of seeing the BMW especially, Panda was a hoot! On the other hand - a Saab 9-5. £550 tax so was expecting it to hang around... Listed it at about 10:30 - 13 ad views later and the new owner is driving it away at 3PM. Funny old game.....

    I find it the opposite - AT rep tells me that I should be working for £600-750 a bonnet. Yeah right, like that’s going to work.

    I can plug my Autel handheld Pro code reader in and read codes but stuff like live data etc are wasted on me.

    WTF does that mean? I’ll stick with my £30 obd interrogator I bought about 10 years ago on fleabay as a ‘get you home’ code clearer.
