just a thread to vent my frustrations about p/ex prices.
went to a dealers on my day off yesterday as i need to change my 2.2 coupe for something 'family' orientated as my other half is expecting our 1st child next year. the price i got quoted for mine was laughable:- heres the details below as i would appreciate some feedback
mine: july 2003 2.2 bertone coupe in silver
full heated leather
upgrade to climate control
full styling pack with all irmscher extras apart from bonnet extension including full irmscher exhaust
only 7,900 miles with full history and in pristine condition
paid £11995 for car plus £950 for styling pack ad exhaust all fitted and painted by VX dealer prior to collection
the salesman who couldnt have been older than 18 came back with his sales manager and offered me £8700 !
a bit insulting considering they have 2 sat in thier indoor showroom with no leather or styling back about 6 mths newer than maine with 14k on the clock and they want £14k for them.
i was told i couldnt expect retail prices on a p/ex which I appreciate as i work in a caravan dealership where i deal with p/ex's all day every day. it seems to me they see a a mid twenty something coming in through the doors and they think im gullable to fall for a daft p/ex price!
i know there has been a lot of chat about coupe prices falling etc but surly not by that margin in 3mths?
