    Default looking at vxr need adivce badly !!!

    I dont think there is anything i can do about this, but i thought i give it a try anyways.
    I saw this car up for £10,800 on ebay and it didnt sell. Then it got put on ebay again for £10,000 and it didnt sell so it got put on again for £9,500 so i contacted the seller , and she said i could buy it for 9400. Ive been stuck in egypt for 2 weeks, and im out here for another 2 weeks ontop of that. I texted her and she says she sold it for 9300, she was sorry she couldnt hold onto it ect she needed the cash, fair enough. so i looked on ebay again for vxr's in genral. and saw that it is back up for sale, my local evans halshaw is selling it for £10,700. I am devistated and i enquired about the vxr and they say they are the cheapest in a 60 mile radius, so they wont knock a penny off.

    A little harsh considering i could of had it for £9,400 saving me a whopping £1,300 .
    is there anything i can do to get the price down, knowing this information ? it is immaculate aswell, you cant nit pick on a scuffed alloy for e.g. Please help !!!!
    BTW has anyone bought a car form evans halshaw lately and got the price knocked down ? how did ya do it =) THANKS ALL =)

    Why are you upset? It has no optional extras? And isn't a good price?

    Just looked and you can get a arctic for £9500? Personaly I'd get this!

    im just annoyed more than anything mate, and im not fussed on an artic because there are so many white limited editions corsa's where i live. so it wouldnt stand out like the blue. ive got my heart set on arden blue.and my budget is around £10,300 depends on what i see. any you said it does'nt have any optional extras it has the 18" alloys . what other extras can you get that are common on a second hand vxr ?
    i know about rain sensitive wipers and sat nav ect. Thanks for looking tho like i said got my heart set on arden blue. and how much do you think i should be paying for a 59 reg = £9500 ? 10 reg = £10200 ? and a 60 reg = £11000 ? are these price about right ?

    got mine from evans halshaw... they made me pay for the little bit of fuel that they put in it so doubt they would drop the price for you

    EH have awful customer service, i got a mk4 fiesta from them for a cheap runaround before i got my SRi and i had to pay £1900 for it, wasn't in thebest condition but because it had £1900 in the window thats the price i had to pay...come payment time they decided to put £1999 into the payment section, i told them of what i thought was a mistake and they turned around and went no thats the admin fee for the HPI check. So i told them i wasn't paying £99 for a HPI check i could get myself for £5, they said you either pay it or you dont get the car...2 days after getting it home the sump plug failed causing my headgasket to go! Rang them up and they say the car has no warranty or guarantee even though i was told 3 months...never did get my money back.

    Thats the reason i would never reccomend EH to ANYONE, not even a dog!

    My experience of two Evans Halshaws is they are pretty poor on customer service.

    But as they are a fairly big company they sell a lot of vauxhalls, so sometimes they has more VXRs etc in stock.

    You will get better service from smaller companies (in my experience) but the car you want won't always be on the forecourt.
    Used to own: Arden Blue Astra VXR.

    Now own: Silver Corsa VXR.
