Have you signed the deal?
If yes, be happy and forget about the car market
IF no keep looking seems perhpas a bit steep (you are buying from a main dealer tho)

EH have a policy of matching the cheapest price on autotrader in 30-40 miles or something daft so have a search on autotrader.

Parkers isnt accurate as it doesnt take into account the trim levels and features in each specific car. Glass's is what the traders actually use so its a good bargaining tool.

Glass's is what the traders actually use.

Not any more I don't think as my recent experiences show that Glass's figures are miles out.

Nowadays it seems that dealers are logging onto Autotrader and looking to see what comparable cars are being sold for and basing their prices on that

4165 is quoted for same trim level as op's and from a franchised dealer.

Cheers for that info Ian. :)

Glass's was fairly spot on for me but this was about 3-4 months ago. Parkers didnt have the fine tuning for the optional upgrades and their prices seems out of wack with what was going on autotrader. Parkers prices were more in line with cars with no optional extras ie the most basic model and they never asked for any trim levels or upgrades. :)

Apologies to dan. :smashin:
 
I wouldn't hav bought the extras IMO ,i think they're a total con ,the wife and i were offered £3,000 for a 05 30,000 miles Suzuki Vatara :suicide::rotfl:,i mean these sales people are their managers puppets .No longer can they make decisions themselves ,they have to run along to the "managers" Discuss it wi him ,in the mean time,we're sitting waiting like a pair of plums.We'd had enough by this time and we walked out ,they need us but we certainly don't need them :hiya:
