  1. There's a lot of Essay spam on here.....is it a dig at the poor grammar
  2. Is the car still under warranty with MB, if yes then, well yes.
  3. Bidding off the walls? .......move along, nothing to see here.
  4. I don't believe you can sell a car with an outstanding recall.
  5. Not a lot of help if you been told two to three weeks and you are on the coast surfing and get that call
  6. I've 2 off CRV and 2 off Volvos here awaiting safety recalls......the Hondas are now three to four weeks, the Volvos are 10 weeks minimum......maybe looking at January. I always check before purchase then got a little lazy last week and, now this has now bit me in the back side due to supply delays. Just for info' guys.
  7. They have access to erm, hoq can we say, cheaper parts? Don't most stolen cars end up as parts mules or worse?
  8. Possibly debt servicing issues?
  9. I find my local auction has great sausage rolls, coffees nothing to write home about though.
  10. 'Rear axle pre-load' really does come under the heading of witchcraft.....even a lot of good gearbox guys avoid going there. JLR products are always under cooked, they were when I was doing nothing but, XJ40s and Rangie Classics. Great sellers, poor products.
  11. Broken wheel trims, dented wings, filthy interiors, broken keys held together with masking tape, missing badges and decals, missing ripped/holed floormats it's all first form stuff but, so regularly seen. Very odd to my mind, if they can't get the basics right, always makes me think are the brakes maxed out, rightly or wrongly
  12. I noticed that the local car supermarket is cutting the legs off of a lot of stock and, my dentman is quiet again. Odd times still and yet to come. We all know this game is peaks and troughs so, onwards and upwards, fight the good fight. Mate of mine who does the banger market under 2k is also slow, same with my van mate, his sales seemed to have fallen off of a cliff. ....I've given up working it out, some are flat out whilst, some are flat as f*uck, ffs it boils my brain.
  13. In the beauty therapy area that is?
  14. Up there with teachers and have dreadful 'no issue, drives lovely' part exs.....last one an Insignia owned by a husband and wife pair of coppers.... ..... with no windscreen wipers.....yes, they stole the wipers during the deal, I ask you, how f*ucking cheap can you get?
  15. That's the clearest explanation I've ever seen
  16. Sos 4 tht m8 Jesus H Christ thats a lot of stock you are carrying there
  17. I've been quiet for a while.....where as, my up to 5 years old mate has been having it off!
  18. I think the OP is the 'be back bus'
  19. It's a surreal one for sure
  20. Old, crusty healed git, annoyed by pesky young kids playing near house. .....I think that stories been running since Billy invented the printing press.
  21. I honestly thought this was a civilian posting 'n moaning about a car he had bought from a dealer at first. Tested in January and, we are what, June all bar a few hours. MOTs are always subjective, always will be too especially on a tender bit of bodywork and discs. Come on guys, we all know miles covered after ticket means bugger all. Whom hasn't had something fail soon after a ticket, I can't believe what I'm reading here? It's an ancient, leggy jalopy as you call it and failed on two bits of welding....that's good going isn't it? Repair it or scrap and simply move on I'd like to borrow your crystal ball though for next weeks Lottery if I may I just reread that, I think you are saying that you bought it off another dealer, is that so? .... " I hate how other dealers just s*it over each other as this trade is hard enough, but this really annoyed me and I’m tempted to report them"
