    Why do people do it ??

    Been to look at new project possibility this lunchtime, spoke to the dealer a couple of days ago, assured me it was immaculate, clean inside, decent tyres etc etc - tipped up today to view it , and its a bucket. Asking top dollar for what is an average example

    Did he think i would just buy it anyway ?? Be able to blagg his way through it ??

    Did you question everything about it steve? Make him seem like a complete idiot after advertising it as mint, then you tell him what's wrong with it.

    i find most dealers to be like this to be honest

    99% of sales men are born bullshitters (dempsey being the other 1% )

    When I bought my current coupe I looked at a silver one in a delaers earlier that day. When I got there you could see it had baan hit on the rear 1/4 and no effort had been made to fix it, the front bumper was not fitted correctly and the cream leather was un cleaned.

    To top it off they wanted £1000 more than the one that I bought.

    To play the game I got them to aggree the price I would pay was £9000, not the £10,000 thay had ont he ticket, but when they said they would fix all the bad points they expected me to pay the full £10k.........durr!

    You can't tell until you turn up can you?
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Mate, we've all been round that loop. Travelling miles to look at a 'mint' car only to discover its a shed with some obvious crash history.

    A recent example, we were looking for a Golf R32 for the missus. 50 miles later nearly in southend at a dealer so not inconsiderable effort, we look round a R32 only to discover passenger door doesn't line up properly, passenger seat with loose and missing bits, and to top it off what looks like spots of blood on the head lining. F*#king lovely.

    This plie of arse I was told was immaculate on the phone
