Re: did i get ripped off?

3580? or is that a typo and should be 3850?

3580 sounds about right to me though.

Re: did i get ripped off?

how can it be last november that he bought it, as its on a 53 plate, which means its pre march 2004?

EDIT - the advert says its got 8 months warranty left, but as these cars came with a three year warranty, that means the car should be on a 03 reg(going by the warranty dates, the car is from april 2003). the only way the car could have 8 months warranty, and be bought in 2004, is if it had a one year warranty, which only comes with an import. but that still doesnt explain why its on a 53 plate.

Sounds like a bargain to me. I didn't realise that they were that cheap second hand.

The moral of the story? Buy new seis, not Puntos!

Re: did i get ripped off?

Dave, you can't be bad to that. It's a bit of a bargain for a car that's only a year and a few months old.
