    Hi All,

    Was looking forward to getting an A3 last week but dealer at the last minute reduced the valuation of my 59 plate A3 which i was trading in .. (excuse being underwriter wont pay more than this blah blah) even though when everything was agreed and all that was left to do was to sign papers and do deposit .. i was well pissed so i walked away .. Ended up getting a C250 today 2.1l twin turbo charged edrive back home on m62 was awesome .. Would like to thank all the members for their help and support .. Will definately keep in touch as this forum is full of innovative ideas and members here are very helpful :D



    Few pics of my new motor:

    Good luck mate. No law that says you have to stick to one make. When i bought the new S3 it was a choice of a nearly new SL or the Audi, it was only running cost that tipped me audi's way. Merc's are class inside IMHO :)

    Funny you should raise this issue, but I suffered the same.

    I was furious as they had a lower spec car on the forecourt at nearly 50% over my trade in value. After a week spent negotiating I managed to get GAP insurance, Paint and interior protection, alloy wheel and tyre protection, a swap of trim including installation, an improved APR and a few quid back to stop me walking away / providing bad feedback (hits their commission).

    My car had been hit £3k in 6 months, but it's shouldn't be all my fault they take far too long to build a car.

    It meant not getting angry, challenging them hard against the prices of their own stock, but I get the feeling I was lucky as my sales guy has quite a good conscience.

    Thanks paddy :sm4:

    The one i was getting was a demo car so didnt loose much sleep over it but was defo pissed off plus i bought my previous a3 from the same dealer .. Im chuffed to be honest as i got Merc almost at the same price plus with every option available (excluding the rear view camera).
