"we buy any car"
« on: January 31, 2014, 06:39:39 pm »
For a laugh, and because my friend had sold his car to them, i valued my pristine 595 turismo on their site. The car is 10 months old has done 2k now and i bought it as a pre reg with 10 miles on the clock from arnolds.

When i bought the car i was also considering an ST fiesta but people, including the salesman thought it would depreciate quicker than the abarth and this and a couple of other things i did not like on the ST, made up my mind to buy the abarth, also the fact that it was £2500 less than an un reg turismo was another factor.

Any way back to we buy any car, i have owned dozens of cars over many years so i'm well versed in matters concerning the motor trade but even i was slightly dismayed with the £11,200 that they quoted!! depreciation is one thing but this sounds like day light robbery.

Any thoughts?,

    I think they are part of the carcraft group so it's a good way of getting cheap car to sell  ;)

    Don't be too dismayed, presuming your car is on a 13 plate they are only out by about 2 grand. That's pretty close for them.........
