  1. Could be due to the huge backlog of driving tests? Not many youngsters passing at the min.
  2. £2k-£10k around 15 in stock. It’s only part of my business though so luckily I don’t need to rely on it.
  3. Possibly regional? but I’m already seeing it slowing and becoming a race to the bottom. I reduced a bit of my stock last week due to lack of interest, making some of them cheapest in the country. Checked again today and noticed a couple of dealers I undercut last week have now dropped the prices on their equivalent cars to be cheaper than mine. Ive still not sold anything and speaking to a few local dealers they’re suffering the same.
  4. Not sold anything in nearly 2 weeks with a stock of 15 cars. Phones barely rang either. Anyone else noticed an influx in people asking for delivery all over the country since the likes of Cazoo and Cinch have joined the market?
  5. It’s common on all Volvos if they’re still on the factory screen. I’ve had V50’s, v70’s and c30’s with the same issue
  6. Failed dpf regen possibly pumping fuel into the oil
  7. Midlands? we’re the same, even my mechanic I use it’s practically begging me for work and has so few mot’s booked in he’s stopped opening Saturdays. Although this could of been down to last years extension.
  8. We’ve been quieter since things have started going back to normal than we was doing click and collect.
  9. Yea it is the 3 button circular type key with the blade inside the fob
  10. Anyone had an joy getting replacement R56 Mini key fobs made other than at a main dealer? Customer is complaining spare key doesn’t work/missing chip and Mini are quoting £175+vat for a replacement. Customer is saying everywhere else they’ve tried are saying it’s a dealer only part.
  11. Not sure where your buying from but BCA will still fight you to the end if you try and claim any money back or refuse a vehicle.
  12. I’m guessing the drivers/transporters or the valeters? Every car I seam to pick up lately has had the rear seat bench pulled off where someone’s clearly been looking for loose change.
  13. If only that was true in our case, a friend of mine bought a Civic from BCA a few weeks back. No warning lights on the dash, no faults declared. Paid online, booked the collection and went to pick it up. Car started but was barely running on two cylinders and engine management light flashing, took the keys back to the office and refused to take it. Rang the claims line when he got home and was basically told it was sold as seen and had to be collected, so he bit the bullet and went back for a second time. This time it wouldn’t even start, couldn’t even drive it out the car park so gave up. Rang claims line again and was told the car is sold as a car and that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be a runner even though it was showed as running in the pictures. He’s now having to go down the legal route, absolute joke.
  14. If you listen carefully you can actually hear them clicking the mouse bidding it up themselves
  15. Plus points are it’s free... Negative points are everyone that uses it
