  1. That's what happens when you don't field enough candidates. Probably a smart move being in opposition, especially with the housing situation down south and the vaccine rollout. FF and FG should just merge. They're indistinguishable anyway.
  2. Not a SF fan by any stretch of the imagination but they seem to have 1st preferences and quotas galore. They have the 18-35 cohort firmly in the bag also. If they don't deliver, I can't see them lasting.
  3. One of the reasons why SF will gain significantly in the next election. Again.
  4. I've always found drivethedeal to be cheaper than carwow but good advice. If you want to get the best price for a car and pay cash, it's the way to do it.
  5. Google drive the deal, broadspeed and orangewheels. Pick the beat price from there and use it to negotiate. Also, never take the dealers GAP insurance. You can always find it cheaper online. In my experience about 70% cheaper. Never take the paint protection. You can get a ceramic coating cheaper.
  6. Not true. I've never had to return a deposit contribution. Sometimes the dealers have to fiddle the figures to match the broker price. One of the OH's audi's had a 6.5k contribution. I've never returned a penny. Even got to keep all those bouquets too.
  7. Withdrawing (withing 14 days) hasn't been a problem for me with VAG. It's essentially the cooling off period. The dealer wasn't happy but I have used the same dealer again. If it was an issue, I'd pay a month on finance and then settle the finance. Best case pay 1 day interest, worst case pay 59 days interest and a termination fee but retain any discounts.
  8. No problems in NI I'm aware of. Probably due to the fact our gas bottle gas is 40% more expensive than GB.
  9. This is for new. Orangewheels and drivethedeal are the two I use. Definitely for a relatively new diesel I wouldn't touch low mileage. I'm shocked the price of 1 year old cars. Might as well negotiate and buy new in a lot of cases.
  10. I've bought 4 VAG cars and this is what I've always done. Get a broker price and use that to negotiate. Get the manufacturer discounts Take the finance and cancel the agreement the next day. Dealers go absolutely mental about it. Last car I bought was 11k off list.
  11. Sales are definitely falling through. I can list about 8 that have collapsed in BT9 in the last week or so.
