  1. We’ve got a Tigra that’s been in around 400 days only done 50k as well
  2. Good here 10 on the board and it’s our month with no VAT and no rent so 16 would do... we should do way into the 20s unless something goes wrong. been very steady
  3. Had same letter. Re-sent check and new form this morning. cheque* even.
  4. Yep no complaints here Put a 2008 cat d Touran on this afternoon for £1790, clean and drives well so expect the phone to melt on that tomorrow.
  5. 1 more of the 2 potentials now a sale so 21 for the month.
  6. We've done 20 retail from a stock of 28 (average holding over the month). and a couple of very cheap pexs. Pretty decent for January - got maybe 2 more than could be done before month ends too, but can't be sure.
  7. We had a Citroen C4 Picasso into Citroen for diagnosis of a random fault in November They rang me next day and said no fault found and we won't be charging you. Couldn't believe it!
  8. You've not been able to duplicate the word SOLD for years, can't remember why though. But it's been that way since I first used AT (7-8 years).
  9. I rarely venture above 80k. 50-60k on small/first time type cars.
  10. We’re in same boat wouldn’t panic yet
  11. Personally I think this is one of the trickiest questions in our industry I honestly think a large % of customers think our cars should all be our back to new mechanical standard and parts shouldn’t be worn. If a part fails and we offer to fit a second hand one how often do they say ‘I don’t want a second hand part’ - but EVERY part on the car is either used or second hand!
  12. Two enquires this weekend, two customers turned up, two sales easy as that isn’t it Two enquires this weekend, two customers turned up, two sales easy as that isn’t it
  13. Yep this idea would be doomed to failure.
  14. We’ve done 9 and ticking along nicely
  15. We were with Lawgistics for 3 years and they were great - helped us no end and I learned lots since we moved we’ve never needed them. My own experience has been enough. Never had to go to court and feel confident in dealing with everything in house - even the super screamers.
  16. Do you keep your old photos when advertising?
  17. 208s seem decent buys for me recently not as cheap as above but can get 14plates in £3-3.5k region and they are stylish little cars imo with good spec
  18. If you get one from A4C and they have missed something, ie clutch slipping, they will 9/10 give you a reduction. Back in the old days we picked up a 2002 Mondeo and clutch was slipping and they gave us £250 and it didn't cost us that to get it done (then). Not sure if that's changed now though.
  19. If you turned up and moaned and can prove you've paid they will let you have it. It takes longer and it's not good practice but it is possible.
  20. We had one customer ask if the fact it had an air freshener hanging in the shape of a C meant it was a CAT C No the last owner was called Chantal hahahaha
  21. We’ve done 5 and 2 that were sold from last year collected Realistically I need to fill 5-6 spaces though so that’s next challenge.
