Re: Spare key problem
The car I am looking to buy is a BMW 325 sport (sorry! lol) Although I have been to a number of different dealers this salesman was the only one who asked about the key. My car (a Feb 2001 147 selespeed 39000 miles) appears to be worth about 6.5k everywhere else , but this guy offerened me 5k!! This he said was due to the lack of spare key and incomplete main dealer service history.
And the reason why I'm moving away from alfa.. well firstly depereciation, I paid 14.5k for the car 2 years ago. Secondly I'm worried about selespeed failing as I dont want a huge bill on my hands and thirdly the alfa dealers are amazingly bad, especially DBS Desira in Hertford where I bought it from.
There arent many reasonably priced desirable cars out there but I've looked at the Merc sports coupe, new A3 and the BMW. The BMW although a bit common is still a great drivers car, looks good (especially in sports guise inc 18" wheels) is good quality and will depreciate less quickly than most.
I'm still not sure which to go for as I like theMerc also , but I need to sort this damn key problem out lol
