  1. After a bit of help here if anyone is able to assist... Got a Juke Nismo here with a broken daytime running light, lens broken and not illuminating. Nissan want over £700!!! Tried the usual eBay, breakers etc, nothing come up so far. Anyone know of anywhere that might do an aftermarket one? Thanks
  2. Had a customer come by today to see our 68 plate, 4,800 mile Abarth 595. He was less than complimentary about a new and well known online car supermarket, who delivered him an 18 plate, 6,000 mile Abarth 595 yesterday. Apparently the car looked like it had done 20,000 hard miles. Anyway, he sent them packing back with it, demanding his refund. Came and saw my car, very happy an bought it. I wonder how they are getting along generally, maybe this is an isolated incident, but didn’t sound very good from them.
  3. Thanks all, that’s what I thought, gave it a miss!
  4. Found a car privately advertised on AT, background checked it, all ok so went to see it, on the check it said last owner had it 4 years, I asked the chap “you’ve had it 4 years?”, no 1 he said. Checked the V5, not in his name or address. He said he put it in the trade to keep the owners down, but not a trader. He had service receipts in his name from Oct 2019, but no proof of purchase. Furthermore he said it had full nissan main dealer history, it was part nissan part Indi - not a deal breaker but just another reason to doubt the guy. Would you have bought the car in these circumstances? Trying to gauge if I’m being overcautious. Thanks
  5. Is it just me, or are the people that say I’m not a messer, the biggest fucking messers
  6. Exactly this, because of the type of stock I buy, I’m normally paying over book, but my margins are pretty decent, that’s what matters
  7. Thanks for the feedback guys, shall just crack on with these plates then, doesn’t seem like it’s going to be an issue
  8. I establish what a realistic retail price is, then I take off my costs and the margin I want, that’s the maximum I will pay for it.
  9. These are Northern Irish plates
  10. Is there anything to be aware of when buying cars on Irish plates? Does it put buyers off (I have cover plates on my ads anyway)? Can you get them on a UK plate, if that’s even worth bothering with! Thanks for the help
  11. What’s wrong is it normally points to a moron. In my case, buyer points out car needs a cambelt, I offered to do it, and never heard from him again. Don’t know why, but people interested in cambelts don’t very often buy.
  12. Don’t normally do VAG, but got a TT and A4 Black Edition in prep...oh joy!
  13. Nice, will have to tell the customers not having it is actually a better spec
  14. Think this is the issue with the Golf - 5 door, but manual, no keyless, no nav, and no heated seats...really should learn And there I was aspiring to Golf R’s, maybe give that a swerve! I know, I know! But I keep trying, in the hope I’ll net one some day
