  1. Having to tap up a local main dealer to get last months book, arghh distant memories indeed. The smart phone has a lot to answer for.
  2. I tend to follow auction prices more than cap and they havent move a penny, anything half tidy still brings into book.
  3. They will ask for sure as its an easy out for them. how much mileage has the customer done run the maths sometimes these returns are a gold mine, no chance on earth would i repay the full amount.
  4. Glad he kept it, and fingers crossed the strange rover is true to form and blows up next year.
  5. Think he has already stated he bought it on line "Wimbledon Manheim online "
  6. Agree with FHP if i was in bca shoes i would have done this years ago, i bet they have hundreds of clawback requests every week. No idea why your bank need to freeze your account for five days over one suspect transaction, sounds like overkill again is that BCA fault. for the record i think there a bunch of cowboys as well but cant be blamed for everything that goes wrong
  7. Suck it up doesnt taste very nice but it will drain the life out of you and put you in such a bad mood you will end up growling at customers and lose far more than you would ever win.
  8. Whats next the fruit pickers, cleaners doctors nurses teachers, Brexit went well then.
  9. As David rightly points out its the old umbrella analogy, you should also consider other factors BCA might not be the cheapest but they do from time to time offer 0% 30day deals and makes life very easy to bounce a car back when its on partner finance and so on.
  10. Its been two years now Gina i would hazzard a guess he has found a car.
  11. There is no one working there or hardly anyone, I know of at least 3 working from home doing a 3rd of they used to be seems to be the new level there expected to reach of calls, we used to have a walk in desk where it was quicker for me to drive 5 mins up the road and que behind 2 Mr Jones who couldnt fill in there v62's than ring them but even that has now closed.
  12. We are quite simply no one put up or shut up would be there answer. Its a game of numbers we used to have over a week 100 cars to view and be lucky if we bought ten now its more like 150 cars and be lucky to get 5
  13. Depends on the colour some of these crazy baby blue's and beige 500's for example you cant just flick around you have to do half a bumper, so easy colour £60-80 and pain in the backside £100 but the job is very good i can find cheaper but cant be dealing with having to clean the wheels with overspray ect
  14. Why doesnt the op just buy grade 5 stuff at any of the big players loads of it around, and so i am told far better prices than copart as the weekend warrior stays clear of auctions, again this is third hand have no experience in this market. I cant get my painter to do a simple bumper blow in at a decent time frame so would be of no use to me,
  15. Agreed seen loads of these with a chepo 063 stuck on it the stop start battery is almost twice the size and for sure three times the price, the fault really does sound power related.
  16. Thats the little bugger, good luck hope it solves your problem.
  17. Anyone who has spent enough time in auction houses will know the extra tomato ordered at the counter is a blag and often ends up in the bin outside the cafe. sorry slighly off topic the extra tomato threw me, to answer the op you will never match a main dealer price and there margin isnt as big as some would think it is. It has nothing to do with adding services, people whom like to buy from main dealers used section are buying a lifestyle choice no more no less.
  18. There a doddle to change mind only two star bolts one electrical connector and a air pipe honestly ten min job with a my first tool kit.
  19. thats the little bugger, last one i had made a loud clicking noise when you remove the feed to it the noise went away. yuck did i mention i hate these things.
  20. Second for the evap system heard a purge valve make similar noise before. Vile things
  21. Trust me the grass isnt greener over our side.
  22. In that case change accountants earlier rather than later save yourself a load of headache and possible surcharges
