  1. CRA states that a car should be fit for a specific purpose. Customer specifically wanted Ulez compliant. If it isn’t and he was told it was, the car was missold. Having said that he has owned it for a long time. I would offer to buy it back at a lower price or a refund that takes into account the use, mileage and added owner. Before you do anything though check online if it is indeed non-ulez compliant.
  2. I just sold quite similar X1 for just over £11K. Phone went off the hook.
  3. 100pm for website is too much but the other figures seem right.
  4. Sounds very similar to the one I just sold for £10400. 8 days to sell.
  5. In 2014 I spent £900 on the entry level Snap On Ethos. This has probably been the best £900 I spent on anything, for a dealer that has no workshop that machine has served me really well, it's very fast and codes are very accurate, it does no programming though. I now have a new Launch and that's OK but slower than the Snap On and the menu layout is a mess. It has many functions but it takes me forever to discover them. BMW Service reset for example has menu that only says BMW CBS. Who new that meant condition based servicing...
  6. I thought Best price was more asian / arabic expression where haggling is part of life. LAST price is definitely Eastern European.
  7. My best price or your best price? Then play it by ear from there... Even the “best price” brigade has to buy from somewhere so I will always give it a try.
  8. Of course: My AT for 13 cars is £1200 + VAT a month. My for 20 cars is £88 + VAT a month. I don't know for other dealers but I'd love a platform JUST LIKE Autotrader that works for me JUST AS WELL AS Autotrader and that costs me JUST A LITTLE BIT more than
  9. You never wrote that it has 60K when you bought it! You just stated that the car lost 1000 miles in a month. Nothin else. I would've mentioned the current 60K miles in the original post.
  10. That’s not a clocked car, 98K miles in August, then the clever owner pays £££ to only shave 1000 miles to make it 97K AND take it into the same main dealer!!! Complete nonsense. VW dealer made an admin error booking the car in or a factual error telling you the mileage a month later. Don’t lose your sleep over this, don’t waste your time with BCA letter and enjoy your hols. Why would you say that? Does clocking 1000 miles seem right to you?
  11. What the op means is Can a Cat N vehicle be just a stolen, not an accident damaged car. In short yes it can.
  12. Bear in mind 12 out of 12 doesn't mean I sold every car I bought that month. Far from it. I just sold 8 that were in stock, prepped and ready to sell and bought, prepped and delivered 4 to "waiting" customers. I used to hate finding cars for people but I am becoming better at it. Finance approved in advance, refundable deposit in advance and it's easier. I still have a car in stock since July which isn't ready, another since end of September which isn't ready and I just sold one that was in stock since May!
  13. Great. “Imported” it is then. Just untick “This is a Uk vehicle”
  14. So all we have to do now is to test some more removing more insignificant bits of info from the vehicle information to see which one will trip the price algorithm.
  15. So basically some people can see the new High and Fair price markers, some can't.
  16. Got it, borrowed a Windows laptop. Can you see a white Audi, 62 reg, £14500 No marker? Will publish crude workaround in the other chatroom.
  17. Sorry, don't own one :-) I have a black MINI Convertible, £17000, who can see HIGH and who doesn't see a marker at all?
  18. How are my markers live for some and not for others? I am looking on iPhone, iPad and Mac computer (without account) and the new markers aren't live for me All I can think of they are trialling them still for a small percentage of users. We will get an email when they go live across the board
  19. My retail check valuation disappears but because my high price markers are not live for me I can't see if they would be displayed on the live advert. Currently my High Price adverts have no marker. Just tried a new advert with no reg and it still gives me a marker. Because we discussed that "loophole" on the Car Dealers Facebook page the guy from Autotrader that was admitted to the page must've seen it and plugged the loophole. Will find another, there will be but will only publish in the closed forum.
  20. Remove reg number or VIN number from Vehicle Details and Stock Management. If problems with data check are flagged just remove VIN. No marker. No data check result.
  21. A lot of luck will be needed. A lot.
  22. Reminds me of that scene from the Senna movie where Jean Marie Balestre in a heavy accent said The Best decision is MY decision. He was out of a job shortly after.
  23. 11 out of 12 and I have a viewing at the moment which was scheduled for SAT 30th but I moved it to today. If they buy I'll write it in the November figures so 12 out of 12. I actually have 15 in stock atm but two of them are not ready, not started prep, not advertised and one hasn't even arrived so it could be a be realistic 12 out of 12.
