  1. Kind of reminds me of the time I took a A4 in to swap circa 2005 ish. The thing had about a 3rd of a tank of fuel in it. Naturally I used the car, day or so later I got pulled in to a Revenue roadside fuel check. Boom... Its running on red diesel! Fuck.. I had to provide invoices etc to prove I had only just got it and give last owner details. I heard no more of it
  2. Straight in to the Knicker draw
  3. I learnt the hard way, Punters have a "Warranty" and are under some kind of illusion its a cast iron guarantee that their cars fault will be fixed regardless. They get brought down to earth very quickly when the warranty co wont pay out because of _______. Then your already irate customer is back on to you screaming blue murder. I found life easier to stick to the word of the law, No more No Less
  4. Why do you feel the need to give a 3rd party warranty, I used to stick to the customers consumer rights, dont count on a 3rd party warranty to pull you out of the shit.
  5. I dont like the close up depth of field type shots, Its the kind of shots Id expect to see on a detailing forum or somewhere like Tom Hartley, its like you are trying to hard. Some of the close up shots show the wear and tear a bit to much, that would be enough to put some punters off.
  6. I have a customer with an over 300k 1.9 T5 that still goes strong, doesnt smoke or rattle
  7. I was with Clegg Gifford who are part of TW. In December my renewal was £1100 more than, and with less bells and whistles than my new insurer. No need to say I voted with my feet
  8. You would have been better not reapplying
  9. Whats the crack if the cheque was lost in the post, Im guessing you get some kind of warning/reminder?
  10. Sent my cheque off mid December, not heard a bean and the cheques not been cashed. I usually have the letter by now. Anyone else waiting?
  11. I bet it stinks of kid puke and stale milk.

    I tend to use FB boosted posts to shoecase a completed camper, this is aimed at a target audience. Also do the same on Instagram, I'm more for brand awareness then selling a particular vehicle. I spend around £20 per boosted post, The camper Im doing now was a result of Instagram.
  13. Its only been a few weeks .. I've sat on cars for way longer.
  14. I know I'm in a different game these days but Nov and Dec were flat out. I have campers booked in till late March. I'm quoting on Aprils job at the moment. And this is the quiet period, Just wait till it gets busy !! Got someone starting with me in January as I just cant cope with it. Mrs C has made me take a few days off over Xmas but I know where I would rather be. With regards to the only car I have for sale.... Apart from the text message bottom feeders I've Not had a sniff on the Z4 I bought at the end of October.

    First rule of Bangernomics Run it in to the ground, NEVER wash it or spend any money on it apart from fuel and its MOT
  16. What planet are some of these Judges on!
  17. Bought a 2000 Audi S4 Avant off a mate of mine, The old B5 with the 2.7 Bi Turbo lump. Absolutely loved it, back to basics old school car built at a time before the accounts were in control. I fancy a nice original Mk1 TT 225, I think they are a design classic. Modern cars do nothing for me.... That said I do like the new E Class coupe!
  18. I had one not to long back with huge long message about how much the car is worth and how much I should trade it to him for... DELETE
  19. I always used to do quite well in the second half of December.
