  1. Thanks Umesh - we're starting weekly interviews with car dealers so if anyone fancies chatting to our team about their business, then drop me a line
  2. Thank you! Glad you like those. The team work hard on them early doors, so it's good to know they're liked
  3. Hello everyone, It's been a while since I popped in and said hello, so wanted to drop you all a line. Anything interesting out there we should be covering on Car Dealer website? Anything we're missing or not doing enough of? Would love to hear your thoughts on what you'd like to read more of. James
  4. Thanks for your advice and patience. If you see a spam thread please report it - these come directly to me and a colleague and we always act on them.
  5. Sorry for all this. And thanks to those that bought it to my attention. Any spam posts can be flagged and we'll instantly ban them. We'll also look into how they got in the first place! I'm on it.
  6. We got bored over Christmas so started a Car Dealer Podcast. You can find it on the usual Podcast places, including Spotify and Apple Podcasts, by searching for 'Car Dealer Podcast'. In this one Rebecca and I chat about the stories that caught our eye in the Car Dealer headlines. Let me know if you enjoy it
  7. Thanks for the questions – I asked some of them in this video interview: https://cardealermagazine.co.uk/publish/car-dealer-live-auto-trader-ceo-nathan-coe-on-why-ad-giant-wont-be-selling-cars-direct-to-consumers-online-car-sales-and-its-new-launches/209038
  8. Morning all I'm interviewing the CEO of Auto Trader today for a Car Dealer Live video - what do you want to ask him? Post your suggestions here and I'll see what I can do. Cheers James
  9. Sorry it took a while! Glad all ok now
  10. Apologies for the downtime on the forum. We hope they’re now back up and running properly. Let me know if you experience any problems.
  11. Thanks all. We’ll look into this ASAP As an update we may have to take the forum down for maintenance. It’ll be back ASAP
  12. Morning all, thanks for your emails and calls about the forum issues. I noted the strange different user name I was given when I clicked on the site today. However, when I went to start this post, all seemed fine. Are people still experiencing problems? Are there any more extreme than that? If you let me know here we'll investigate. Apologies for the issues.
  13. Hello all Sorry I’ve been quiet. It’s been rather busy in the car dealer world and it turns out it’s not as simple to fill the internet as it is a magazine every month... Anyway, I’ve just been surfing the World Wide Web (I know, very dangerous) but it got me thinking (again, dangerous) about a feature on what used cars car dealers would avoid - so come on, hit me: what used car would you never ever buy and why? My starter for 10 - a Land Rover Freelander. Not only pretty rubbish but unbelievably unreliable by all accounts. What’s yours? Hope all well with you all too!
  14. Alright alright. Calm down all. Been a while since I’ve had to intervene on here. Let’s keep the language civil and act like professionals. That is, after all, what the motor trade is. Don’t let the side down chaps
  15. This is shocking... Please pass it on to friends in the trade https://cardealermagazine.co.uk/publish/car-dealer-issues-bounce-back-loan-scam-warning-conman-nearly-tricks-80k/197520
