Did some driving round other dealers today, and finally got a price for the Punto that I'm happy with. I shook on £3300. Monthly payments will work out cheaper than I'd hoped. I've placed an order for a brand new 3 door Sxi in black. Bloke says he might struggle to get black and I've indicated it's the only colour I'll take, but really I'll be just as pleased with the silver he offered. To say I'm happy is an understatement. I can finally join in the chat here for real.
Thanks for your words of encouragement last night.
Goodbye Fiat, hello Vauxhall.
