Smile Re: Cars are like buses

Funny that - thought it was just me

When I went "shopping" for my Stilo, after test driving a 1.6 and a JTD at 2 local-ish Fiat dealers I quickly knew what I fancied (3 dr JTD with a/c, sky roof, low mileage, one owner etc etc) but according to them and pretty much every Fiat dealer I spoke to "up north" such a thing was highly unlikely to exsist.... but did I fancy buying this car instead - - blah blah you get the picture

I found my Stilo via "Fish4" and bought it unseen (after a thorough RAC inspection) although the dealer (not Fiat) emailed many many pictures emailed to me and was incredibly helpful. Although it was a minor hassle, the travel from Aberdeenshire via Prestwick to Stanstead collecting the car and driving it back might sound daft but I "saved" somewhere in the region of 1200 (after costs) over what it would have cost me for a similar car up here. Ofcourse, it was fun driving my new toy back home again

So it's worth hunting around for the right car - and (in my case) travelling the length of the country to get it What's a hundred miles in order to get the right car?
