  1. 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.
  2. No - you can definitely add a random number on and it will work
  3. Total schoolboy stuff if it’s not been put on the invoice sadly
  4. I’ve 70% of the way to a great month shame I had to pay the vat really
  5. 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!
  6. Cheeky reach around sometimes gets the customers juices flowing
  7. Ecoboost most autos peugeot 1.6/mini/ds3 etc mazda Ford 2.2 diesel most modern Vauxhall’s
  8. Of course it does and massively so on brand new
  9. Surely if a new car gets returned even after 7 days that would add an owner / devalue it hugely
  10. 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.
  11. 5 this weekend (one cheapie though so 4.5 really )
  12. the no engine story has made me genuinely LOL. Imagine the ribbing/banter you'd get for that...
  13. solid but unspectacular lost 3 deals to finance declines and 2 changed their minds....add those 5 on though and we'd be flying.
  14. Good start 3 on the board 3 pending tomorrow plus any new enquiries found restocking easy as well
  15. 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
  16. Get a really good repair and keep your trap shut, imo.
  17. Yes a good/thorough schedule of condition is vital.
  18. If the car is nice as you say, get it done properly. Our local guy is great sometimes you cannot tell at all and it's less than £50 I think.
  19. We are 4,500 sq ft and can fit around 30-31 inside, maybe a couple more. And room for 5-6 outside. Very lucky with this unit at £1150 a month with no rates, only downside is not perfect location, lovely village but we have no main road frontage.
  20. I'm a morrisons man mate, love it.
  21. I never check the price of anything in the supermarket, just cannot be bothered & never collected a point in my life.
  22. You just can’t win sometimes tell someone you’ve put a brand new alternator on and it’s ‘omg is it unreliable then? What will go next??’
