At 4700 for repairs I somehow doubt I'll be seeing the Seat again!  :cursin: :cursin: :cursin: :cursin: :cursin: :cursin: :cursin: :cursin: :cursin:

More hassle I just didn't need.

Nice! No mention of Portuguese trucker warning buzzer, though? :)

Ought to be a discount for a cash buyer, just a thought I'm sure has already occurred to you?

Trust me, I'll be knocking some cash off it.


Title: Re: Ah well

Tried to knock the price down but wouldn't budge however there were a few creases and dings on the body work which I've got them to do for free (I reckon about 6 little dents in the trim which is 150 to 200 to fix.) 12 Month Warranty, 12 Month Mot plus MOT cover, Full tank of gas and some mats thrown in. Drives fine, everything works so considering it isn't actually costing me anything I'm happy.

Deposit paid just got to wait for the insurance pay out and then I can go collect.

Fair enough. look forward to seeing the new beastie next time we connect!

It's not in their best interests to give discount for cash these days. They'd much prefer you to take out a nice finance deal because thay get a payout from the finace people. Shame really ...... cash no longer seems to be King!
But at least you got some freebies out of 'em.

Aye, best I could hope for really and with the internet being just a touch away you can't even bullshit them over deals as they just look it up!
