Finally given in!

Last week the temptation got the better of me and after a lot of thinking about it i have decided to swap my mini for a punto evo.

I have ordered a GP in Exotica Red, with the sun roof, style pack, parking sensors and stickers along the side of the car!

Lol i had no problems with them what so ever they didn't rush me into it they didn't pester me when i walked away i came back said i wanted to put the deposit down on sunday but he couldnt order it till monday! i had loads of phone calls from them monday and tuesday but like i told him i was at work and cant have my phone with me so he rang me on my work phone which i had the ump about cause i didnt give it to them!! It was the finance bloke telling me i needed someone else on my finance cause if your 21 and under they need it which he was so desparate so i said its though he'd wait till thursday cause i cant ring from work as i work with children i dont have time to mess around with that! and rang him n hes not ringing me back now which is annoying me. They just dont really seem that bothered about it at all even tho they both sat n sunday when i went in it was totally dead in there!!
but so long as they've ordered my car and it comes with everything i want then i dont care!

Im getting the Indian ink stickers along the top of the door. i did consider those but thought they would look best on the white but i didnt wqant white i only wanted red!
I couldnt live without parking sensors lol i hate parking!!
i have only done 1 so far because my insurance aint due till november i'll only change my currant policy until then but my mini was 1500 to insure the quote on the punto for direct line was 650 which aint bad considering until november i have 0 years no claims and 3 points dam it but im gonna shop around should be able to get better!! you?

Re: Finally given in!

Look forward to seeing pics! I must say i do like the Red and Acid Jazz Blue i really hadnt made up my mind on the colours when i ordered but decided if i went for white i could spend 400 i saved on extras! Went towards wheels nearly ordered the Style Pack but decided i would do this later on, Did you order the 8V with Fiats 2000 contribution or go for the 16V? I had originally wanted the GP 16V but found out it wasnt in the offer which made me have to re-consider and then decided i may aswell go for the sporting as this was eligible!! Ive had various quotes all hovering around 1000 really but i will be using for business use too

I went for the 8v although the 2000 pound contribution is going to pay my mini finance off! because i owe more on my mini then what it is worth!! They have had a lot of trouble getting quotes for my mini cause although its in perfect condition the mileage is so high no mini dealer will take it cause it be hard to sell! this has gone against me a lot but i've managed to get my payments down slightly and when i pick the car up im aim to put atleast another 500 pounds down to lowers my payments more!
When are you expecting yours?? n

Re: Finally given in!

Expected early September although i feel it will be more like mid september as the factory shuts during August and luck is never on my side! Yeah i used the 2000 contribution and have put 500 down and another 500 when the car arrives. Did they mention to you there is no spare wheel included? They certainly didnt to me something i found out on here, Its 35 to order from factory otherwise at least double afterward!

Oh really??? Nope they didn't tell me that!! have finally spoken to them they have sorted my finance but that car has still not been ordered so i'll prob be looking at end of September..suppose the only good thing is that it gives me more of my mini payments which should bring it down a bit more!
