Bedford

I've had personal experience with this garage, and it wasn't a pleasant one..

I advertised a 335d M Sport Saloon with 170k @ £7250 via Pistonheads..last autumn around 1630hrs. I had a call from a gent around 1745 wanting to buy car at £6500 the next day, I politely rejected the offer. 1930 same number called offering £6600 and wanting to come late evening ie 2330 to collect, again I refused.

I tried to explain that to arrive at that time is unrealistic with teenagers in the house and a school night, plus banks closed obviously..

Another call followed at 2230 to say they were leaving Bedford at 2300 to buy the car in the morning, I suggested a hotel close by run by my brother in law in Torquay. A couple arrived at the hotel around 0330 and messaged me to say 1000hrs in the morning.!

I insisted that I would only accept cash paid into a branch close by if we agreed a price. I'm not small, around 13.5 stone, this guy was of Moroccan origin and 3 times my size, with his English girlfriend. I drove on the test drive, and felt uncomfortable in there presence, I had told my neighbours that if I wasn't back by 1100 to call the plod!

So he knocked me a little but agreed at 6.9k and we went to the bank together, I asked for an address but only got a partial one with the above garages postcode and a signed sold as seen document, he would not sign but the girlfriend did. At the hotel she signed in using a different name altogether.

The whole experience was surreal, and the very next day within 48 hrs of the advert being placed the car was up at £8995 which I felt was optimistic.

I know it's a bit off subject but some dealers do grab bargains I guess...
