Re: Dealer offer what do you think?

Correct me if I'm wrong but at the end you don't trade it in you would start again from zero as you wouldn't own the car until the final payment is paid the lower the final number the more you would pay monthly garages don't do it to loose out.

Re: Dealer offer what do you think?

Put it this way... You won't regret it :P

I've been practically living in it. Driving my old corsa I did about 8,000miles in 16months.

In 1 just over 1 month, I have already done 2,000 miles. The turbo is fantastic and most of my mates are uber jealous (they eat my dust now)

I'm looking to get my calipers sprayed soon but can't yet decide on what colour and hopefully will get the windows tinted shortly. (Works out cheaper than getting the style pack)

Re: Dealer offer what do you think?

Ok Went to my local Arnold Clark Fiat dealer tonight and told him the deal I had been offered. Although he is yet to confirm it he recons he has a white sporting basic (i.e. no style pack or subwoofer, though he said he would get the windows tinted for nothing) it would be pre registered and he recons he can do it for £230 p/m with the same no deposit and final value of £4600.

Would I be better getting the extras (though to be honest the tints and calipers are all I am really interested in) and a first registered (new) car or save £10 p/m and get a pre registered car?. Does getting it pre registered affect things further down the line?

Re: Dealer offer what do you think?

Re: Dealer offer what do you think?

I'm intrigued by this offer, judging by your username arnold clark is your only option in that part of the country and as the largest network how can someone beat them on price?

Re: Dealer offer what do you think?

There is a Fiat Dealer in Kilmarnock called Bicketts which is owned by Verve. Its actually where I bought my last car as, once again, Arnold Clark couldn't beat their deal.

Re: Dealer offer what do you think?

Well finally bought the car from Bicketts in Kilmarnock. They managed to shave another £5 p/m of the deal so all in all I think I am getting a great deal from then. Arnold Clark said they couldn't match the deal and that it was a very good offer. Getting it on Wednesday so kinda excited now lol. Going to take all the bits an pieces I have put into it out today - the speakers, the light bulbs the new style badges etc.

Re: Dealer offer what do you think?

find it hard to believe they can undercut arnies, is it a pre-reg? Loads of rumours they are losing fiat ,no techs, no DET etc ... dunno if true or not?

Well Arnold Clarks were about £25 p/m more expensive and that was for a pre registered base Sporting. Bicketts is new, not pre registered, and has the style pack and he is going to change the wheels for a pair of 17" 2 tone ones he has there as I don't like the grey wheels that comes on the style pack.

I dunno about them loosing fiat but anything is possible. Hope not cause I would not really wish to take my car to Arnold Clarks for a service.

Might Not Be Getting My New Car Today

Well was supposed to be going over at 2pm to collect my new car however just had a call from the garage saying apparently Fiats Computers are having problems and they have been unable to register and tax my car SO he is not sure if I will still be able to collect it today.
