  1. 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
  3. What planet are some of these Judges on!
  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. I always used to do quite well in the second half of December.
  7. Many years ago whilst trading from home I had a council visit. Long story short.....actually its a very short story. In a nutshell he rocked up showed me his ID, told me of the complaint. Had a quick butchers, could clearly see no signage, engines out of cars or mechanical type work going on. Obviously the complaint had been exaggerated. He left with no further action.
  8. Id be in on Xmas day given the chance

    Wave accounting is free, quite similar to quickbooks. You can upload a logo
  14. Bit of a heads up, Some good deals to be had plus even more discount if you have a trade card. Just spent far to much on impulse purchasing.
  15. Maybe people think they are getting a bargain in the winter !
  16. The Caddy is my favourite vehicle, we go everywhere in the van.
  17. Im holding out for a Picasso. The painter not the shit french school run chariot
  18. Believe me that was my first thought
  19. Stuck it on last night, You have got to love eBay...... What a brilliant car and looks like it should cost more !!Let me make an offer that is indeed more than your asking price, but there is a But....and am relying on the old adage that if you don't don't get !I have an Original wildlife oil painting by collected artist Tony Forrest.It has been valued at £8,000 by Whitewall Galleries (large chain of over 40 galleries and is they who exhibit originals by Forrest). I will happily offer this if the car is as nice as she appears.I have certificated proof of value, ownership and authenticity.Keep it and use as an investment - you will make good money, (I bought it for £450 and look at it now !). Sell it on and you'll still be way over your top price - you will be in a win/win.I actually live in France where Forrest has no market - his market is UK or USA so not easy for me to sell quickly.Your car is what we all hope to find, but rarely do, so am happy to take the hit on the price differential,Can send j-pegs if you want,John
  20. Not sure I recall asking for a value.
  21. Cant even remember the last car I bought, Long story short my mate wanted to off load his Wifes 2006 56 Z4 2.0 M-Sport to WBAC as he couldn't be arsed to sell it. The car has been perverted over for years, he's properly anal about cars everything has to be perfect. 54k miles with all the M Sport trimmings Not a mark on it, I matched the WBAC offer at £3100. Prices are all over the place on these things, It can sit in the corner of the unit till some crazy BMW pervert gives me £2k profit.
