  1. I went to Leicester tigers the other week Good day out but no idea what was happening on the field
  2. I love most sport tbh...cricket, football, boxing, snooker especially.
  3. £30 + vat per wheel for refurb £29.95 MOT Labour £35/£40 on mechanicals Smart man is usually £60-80 per corner or whatever, few buffs or touch ins generally £20-£30 Mini valet £12 Full valet or big 7 seater around £40 if seats terrible Dent man £25 per car
  4. 19 here, steady not spectacular and slowed down last week really
  5. I've always thought if you put the odd cat c/d/n whatever it's called now on your site, even one tbh, you risk getting all your stock tarred with a similar brush.
  6. No - you can definitely add a random number on and it will work
  7. Total schoolboy stuff if it’s not been put on the invoice sadly
  8. I’ve 70% of the way to a great month shame I had to pay the vat really
  9. If they ask me for fuel I put a tenner in, which is what 8 litres? Or if the lights on I will stretch to £15. End of the day, no one fills my tank up - except for me!
  10. Cheeky reach around sometimes gets the customers juices flowing
  11. Ecoboost most autos peugeot 1.6/mini/ds3 etc mazda Ford 2.2 diesel most modern Vauxhall’s
  12. Of course it does and massively so on brand new
  13. Surely if a new car gets returned even after 7 days that would add an owner / devalue it hugely
  14. I've not found buying that bad. Yesterday picked up an 11 207 1.6 HDi allure for £2300, 43k on the clock, 7 stamps. Or is that too rich for some Then lucky enough to be offered a 2013 Clio 1.2 MediaNav in black with 35k, full main dealer history incl cam belt change. That's a regular customer of mine. Then finally a 2012 1.2 Fabia estate today with 54k on....probably paid strongest money for that at £3k. TBH I've got more cars than ever, forgot where I've left some of them EDIT the Clio....WBAC offered £4300, Cap clean was £3900 which I was happy to offer.....WBAC then knocked it down to £3650 due to 2 stone chips (car is 99% mint) so customers more than happy at £3,900.
  15. 5 this weekend (one cheapie though so 4.5 really )
  16. the no engine story has made me genuinely LOL. Imagine the ribbing/banter you'd get for that...
  17. solid but unspectacular lost 3 deals to finance declines and 2 changed their minds....add those 5 on though and we'd be flying.
  18. Good start 3 on the board 3 pending tomorrow plus any new enquiries found restocking easy as well
  19. They keep going on about driving more buyers/leads etc but there is a finite amount of car buyers isn’t there? they can’t magic an extra million deals for us all to share around. im now at £2300 a month but may well reduce it to around £1500 before Christmas
  20. Get a really good repair and keep your trap shut, imo.
  21. Yes a good/thorough schedule of condition is vital.
