new car well s/h
« on: October 18, 2016, 08:07:04 PM »
I have changed my car something more comfortable for my age and cheaper on petrol and even cheaper insurance. It is only 12 months old with 2200 miles on, probably a ex demo but seeing my last car was too not a problem. The car is a Seat Leon 1.2 tsi 110, and has all the goodies led headlamps and sat nav etc.

I always think that Seat charging a premium for red whereas everyone else has it as the free colour is a little bit cheeky. Red Seats are popular those especially in the NSE era (i will get my coat!).

Our current car, a Golf 1.6 tdi SE, was an ex-demo too with just 1250 and about 11 months on the clock and a heck of a discount off even the best 'new deal' I could find.
Some years ago my wife had a Seat Ibiza for her work (also low mileage ex-demo) and found it a great car so I trust that like her you have zero problems over many miles and years.
Although we shall run the Golf for many years yet I wouldn't hesitate to buy ex-demo again.
Happy driving in your new car Chris. :thumbsup:

PS - when ya gonna put the numbers plates on? :D

Like Chris and Daffy, my car is an ex-demo. I picked it up at the end of June, 5 months old with 750 miles on the clock. It is an Opel (don't forget I am in Ireland), Astra 1.6 CDTi in black. Nearly 70 mpg and, here in Ireland, diesel is a bit cheaper than petrol, so my fuel bill is nearly half of what it was. It is not often I get a decent run on decent roads, (don't forget I am in Ireland), but when I do, it goes like the proverbial stuff off a shovel - and that is without hitting the 'Sport' button!  Having said what I did about not getting a decent run, I am having to drive to Dublin, (100 miles), on Friday to catch a flight back home - some sort of meeting I have to go to on Saturday in York.  :wave:

Thanks guys for the nice comments, my last car a Seat Ibiza FR was a demo too with only 2000 miles. You save a fortune only 12 months old most of the depreciation gone with low milage. I had to travel a bit to get this car on Monday I got stuck on the M6 traveling south it took me 2 and a half hours for a 90 mn journey, and what is more another two hours to get back home. First time I had driven a manual gear box for 3 years apart from the test drive but I managed ok.
ps number plates to follow....he....he

ps2 of course it is wet I live in Manchester..........

I heard from a traffic cop once that they pull over red cars more than any other for speeding...

Apparently they play snooker all day - pull over a red car then a black one, then another red car, then another color...

Nice wheels though Chris, but I would go steady on the gas pedal :D

Thanks guys I was hoping this car would slow me down red or not.the Ibiza FR was quick, my son said it kicked arse but it is time to stop the boy racer stuff i am too old for that and save some money on petrol etc.I am enjoying the comfort it is a lot softer on the suspension.
