I went to view an A3 last week. We agreed on a price of Ł2350, and as an exhaust hanger and the fan temperature sensor was in need of a replacement, the guy who is selling me the car said he had a quote for Ł80, and he would pay that before I picked the car up. I put down a Ł200 deposit and told him I'd get the rest of the cash within a week.
However, I have recieved a call today and he said the car had been into the garage. He said they have replaced the following:
Electric fan and relay
Bleed old fluids and replace with new antifreeze and coolant
New exhaust rubber
Remove ARB and replace with new bushes.
This came to nearly Ł400, I realise that those aren't the proper descriptions but I didnt note them all down as I was in a rush.
He said he'd talk to me about it Saturday when I get the car, but I'm concerned if he then asks me to pay for half of it or something. The thing is, after I'd agreed the price and had a few days to think about it, I thought maybe I'd offered slightly too much as the mirror casings are cracked. No big deal but it's hassle to replace them.
What do you guys think he'll do? If he asks for a contribution what shall I say? I've got a written and signed receipt from the guy, and he's nice but I want to know where I stand with this.
