  1. Take the photos after a wet vac. Always look better when damp
  2. Don't buy old fiesta's. They cost a fortune, take ages to sell , any dings on rear quarters are a nightmare, interiors on old ones are poor.
  3. Your better spending nearer the 400. Wifi touchscreen, been able to reset battery, parking brake etc. The foxwells around 200 are woeful, be prepared to spend 10 hours updating then to find out you need to manually type in a VIN for citroens, Hyundai etc
  4. At that kind of price it's hard to see past topdon800bt.
  5. Relaxed kinda place. Pre covid you could scan with the diagnostics and nobody bothered a jot. Selection and quality is poor. It takes a bit of saying but bca and Manheim are better options
  6. Feel cheap ,Parts are expensive, fall to bits at end of warranty,pricey for what they are. depends what end of the market your at but on sub 5k stuff.. fiesta of any variant- slow seller and expensive . Any Ford with a 1.8 engine ...hmm any car with a 1.8 engine. Any diesel unless lots of history and driven by someone who knows what gear to be in
  7. cheers mark - C &D GRANT ring any bells?
  8. Anyone in the vicinity of Glasgow got renolink or clip? Got a troublesome airbag light and need some in depth diagnosis
  9. Onesure are to be avoided. I've had all that crap in the past. Once you fulfill that request the next one is only a matter of time..
  10. just over a month ago I bought two cars that had been owned by someone who had passed away. The executor of will had the old v5 but not most recent. For my own reasons I registered the cars in company name and taxed at post office using v62 . I thought I'd be waiting forever on the new v5 but very surprisingly was no longer than usual. He did write to dvla explaining situation. This proves someone IS dealing with such matters
  11. Someone better tell the NHS 'angels' it's nothing to worry about. sick leave has rocketed in the past few days ‘ I’ve kids to think about’ survival of the fittest....
  12. How could anyone not be concerned? From a business point of view and personal. Seems they call a mild case/symptoms is when you survive it. Can't imagine many car dealers lungs are in tip top condition..inhaled my usual dose of mannol brake cleaner today.
  13. PAYG and not constant. I'm not saying they wouldn't sell on autotrader but they sold through FB before AT had a chance to dip my pockets again. FB was a waste of time in the past but a change of strategy on advert , targeted and posted by my business partner has produced good results. I tend to have young person's type cars kA grand Prix , Corsa stings etc Agree you get a lot of messers on FB but tends to be with the cheap cars on marketplace. Autotrader no longer have the biggest audience....
  14. Last 3 months zero sales through AT previously all sales through AT . Lucky if the younger generation know who autotrader are and if they do there not enticed to look there..
  15. It's a strange world.. Everything has turned full circle. Auctions seem to be the place to buy for a private buyer. Buying Central auctions crap for retail money, when it borders on auto salvage, even the legitimate private sellers lie through their teeth and for sure the car dealer is the most honest amongst men. The unknown to you independent garage hit you with bullshit advisory items whearas the main chains don't.. And the so called liberals use mob rule /mentality to cause chaos . Full circle indeed . Need wisdom in this game...
