use the old "thank & bank" method, you say thanks for your offer of £..... however, it will cost me £..... much more.

or ask them to source & buy you a replacement car?!?

Is it a 2003 or 2004 '53' reg?

If the car is less than 12months old, remind them of the list price of the car and how much it would cost you to buy another car of the same spec.

They've offered you this much already, they cannot drop it! But make sure you get everything in writing!

if a counter offer is made the original offer is void! which means it can go either way! "i know these tangs.....".(in a smooth as hell voice)

IMO i think if you can get another 500quid then go for it......... £8800 is about rite i think....... but to start off with thats not a bad price.....u can always get it a bit higher.

I know it'll be extra hassle for you BUT can't you ask them to purchase a new car for you then stick it on ebay or something, you're bound to get more £8800 for it surely?

There's plenty to choose from now, thats half the problem. Being the top selling hot hatch in the UK for 2 years means theres a few out there...

Every man and his dog knows the new shape is the same car as the old shape one. The difference in list price is that the £300 extra on the base 105, pays for the fact that the former £300 option of ABS on the old shape.

they could get away with purchasing a mk1 pre-registered zed or they could get a mk2 but the problem there is no one knows how well the new zed will sell.........only seen one mk2 for sale on ebay and he had a hard time shifting it.....even thou it was only a week old :eek:
