Could do, subject to negotiation.

I regularly buy from British Car Auctions and Mainheim UK, have just recently returned with a smashing 2016 Tiguan for a guy who saved himself €4000 by the time VRT and all fees (incl mine) we’re sorted compared to purchasing from VW dealer here. Plus he got a much nicer spec

I would urge you to strongly look at the option of New Model in the Used Car you are interested in. New Car Sales are down 10% this year to date. Dealers are apparently fighting tooth & nail for business and if you shop around serious deals are there to be done.

Worth looking into, mate. Plus it might just be the right time to trade in your own car against a New one.


#1067

Cheers. I’ll give it a lash. I’ll keep the forum posted on developments.


#1068

Boys have anyone had to get a DPF filter removed and cleaned out. Mechanic quoted me €250. Is this reasonable


#1069

Jaysus you’re having awful hardship in that country. What sort of shit machines have they passing the NCT over there?


#1070

Same problem really just haven’t done anything about it until now.


#1071

However I have learnt a valuable lesson. Diesels are just for farmers and not for city slickers like me

Lads, I’m in a bit of a pickle. There’s a fella coming to collect a car off me tomorrow evening. It’s no longer insured and has been sitting in the driveway for a while and was therefore dead as dead can be. I’ve jumped it but it’s gone dead gain a couple of times and obviously needs a decent run. I can’t do that as I’ve already drink taken and wouldn’t be insured. The big question is this, will sitting in it revving the fuck out of it for a half an hour help in any way or is that useless? @carryharry @the_mixer_walsh


#1073

Put a brick on the accelerator and run it all night bro


#1074

It will

We sold the first van on carzone. Myself and the other fella drove it up to the topaz on the end of the M50 and met a gang of Travellers who bartered the shit out of it. (in fairness, they may have been worried about the cash they were about to hand over but it added to the air of malice). Some notes. It’s dodgy as fuck. Bring a big fucker like @farmerinthecity with you. Do not meet them in your gaff under any circumstances. I took a phone call from a traveler about 3 hours later screaming down the phone that the van had conked out.

This sounds like good craic. Although Mrs J brought me out a can of Guinness there a while ago so I’m sound here for a while.


#1077

It worked for ferris bueller


#1078

If one of the neighbours rings the shades you will be bagged in your driceway


#1079

He wasn’t trying to Rev the battery though. But sound advice anyway. Sloane Peterson was lovely.


#1080

Why would they do that? Cork must be a horrible place.


#1081

They will think there is a getaway vehicle idling outside your house


#1082

With a Juhniallio inside it drinking Guinness? They’ll put it down to me being an eccentric artist type.


#1083

Don’t do it until half an hour before he comes to collect it, no point in doing it now
