yeah good comeback.. guy. (I also can`t remember your name, is it ned or ted or jed ?)
truth is you win mate....... I hope you are proud, maybe one day you can teach your kids the honest values you have. I bet your staff don`t get an increase this yr, what with the bad economy and all..
Thing is this, for all you fence sitters who suddenly popped up, this may sound like sour grapes but is not my intention at all, money is only money, an alfa is a only a car and what the hell in the bigger picture,
I nearly came back with a quote for quote reply type response which would show not all of what ted said is true, and in fact some of it is really condescending like for example..
I know he wanted to buy another Alfa and as I did feel sorry for the guy so I said I would keep him in credit for £500 worth of future work and I suggested a cam belt service or similar (this offer still stands). I also suggested if he was going to get another Alfa I would look over it for him.
you never mentioned the £500 credit to me, so don`t be telling porkies. I asked if you`d look over my next alfa, because it had a recent belt change, you never suggested it.
He told me, hold on I have an idea you might like. kept we waiting on tenterhooks for 2 days thinking he has an Alfa that we could could make a deal on and comes back with an offer of a mates citroen saxo for a 1000 quid.
anyway I could go on, but it wont change anything. i`m not here to keep slagging off autolusso what`s done is done. They got my car. yes 160k on the clock, bad condition. ?
It was still my bella, my first reaction to ted saying it would cost me £2000 for a new engine i said that`s ok do it, i`ll give you £1500 this week (had the indignity of arranging a loan from work) and the rest the end of the month.. the next day he said it`s not worth the 2nd hand engine you must scrap it, but you owe me £1280
Thats £850 for a cambelt service (how much of that was reclaimed from the apparently dead car.) £280 for a radiator that maybe one of you guys now own, Towing fees ?? fine..
and tax on some deal that never went down.
Whatever mate maybe you need the money more than I do.
see ya around
