Re: Nervous new DS owner

Optimistic - your business partner will have had a diesel as petrols are relatively new. No such issues with petrol (yet... ;-) ) and the B Pillar issue appears to be sorted now. I'd replace mine with a petrol if I were in the market now. People moan about the gearbox (with diesel engines, not hear...

Re: Daughters new car

Great looking car ! She must be so chuffed! Be careful with security up in West Midlands the Abarth seems to be on the thieves shopping list . My Sister had a 595 Turismo - they broke into her house to steal the keys.....and hence why she now has upgraded to a 595 comp after the first was stolen......

Re: Oops there goes another one !

That’s what JLR are doing - they are building new cars and then sabotage the sat nav of the poor transporter driver to go under low bridges! That way they then write off a car, get paid up for it and then sell another !

Re: How much discount have people managed to achive?

Agree about carwow - you do now only tend to get a mediocre level of discount now I think the e-mail idea is a good one, but would take some dedicated time and effort, and maybe the way I'd approach it is to start with a select number of dealers and see what happens, also timed at the end of say H4,...

I'm guessing that 23% was on a stock ready to go model? Getting that off something like a 290 dynamic with extra's is going to be tough....but if someone knows where to point me, I'd be ordering at that level of discount. Part of me wants to move away from the DS, but the reliable Jap products don't...
