I think this scenario sums it up. Phoned a private seller with a Fiat 500, nice late model with 6k miles. He was asking £8150. It was a bit over book but we need stock. Car is still available he says, but may not be for much longer. He had tried WBAC who bid him £8k, then dropped to £7800. However, since he had paid to advertise it on AT, they had upped their offer from £7800 to £8500. So the reality was that I couldn't buy the car that was for sale at £8150 in AT, even for the advertised price, let alone have a discussion on price. Every time I see that tosser Schofield or that goofy berk Rylan on the tv adverts I'd happily throw the remote through the screen.
