so on wat u have sed do u think 8750 is a good price for it then if you can get them sooo cheap as u say beacuse in my local for court thy have 3 1.4 tdci zetecs for sale
1) 2008 23,000 miles for 10000 http://www.birchwood...-TDCi-Zetec-5dr
2) 2009 16,000 miles for 11000 http://www.birchwood...-TDCi-Zetec-3dr

if this is so ''''Matlock ford have identical spec ,delivery miles fiestas at 11500'''' why any body buy car abouve when a brand new one is only 500 quid.
more so that means after a whole year and 16000 miles its only lost 500 quid , i dont get ford pricing :s :s



Other users of the forum would take you far more seriously if you use proper English rather than text talk.
luckily,I have managed to dechipher the above post.

For somebody going to buy a car,you really have no idea how pricing works.


The cars you quote above are deliberately overpriced,so you go along with your tatty old banger which is worth say 500 and they offer you 2500 for it,in reality thay havent given you anything,but created an illusion of a discount.
Should you need to finance the car,you now have a 25% deposit,not a 5 % deposit,so its easier to finance,again deluding the less wary customer.

Now and again,some one like you or your family come along and have no idea about pricing and havent done any research,then the dealer simply sells the car to you at an over inflated price and thinks Happy days to himself as you drive away.
Have a look at your previous posts about your mum buying her fiesta and look for similarities.

Given your vast car buying knowledge ,i would have thought you would have been au fait with all this.


so on wat u have sed do u think 8750 is a good price for it then


Given you now have two firm offers of 8300 and 8750 only you can decide if its a good price,there is no point dreaming it is "worth" 10,000 when it clearly isnt.
If you really want to find a true value,put it on e bay,see what offers you get,you could always set a reserve of 10,000 if thats what you want.

theres no need to be nasy about my writing and i never said i have a 'vast car buying knowledge' thats exactly why i put a topic on a ford foram to ask people with more knowladge than me , god i was only asking for some advise .
''have no idea about pricing and havent done any research'' thats exacly what i am doing asking you lot for advise , instead of just going ahead with the deal.
now after wat i have read i understand abit more thank you for your time.

Two things seem to jump out of this thread...

The first is the 'text talk' - there is no anti text talk policy on FOC and we do understand that lots of people use. The language used by posters (so long as it falls within the rules) is to always be tolerated. That being said, the vast majority of users here do tend to write without text talk, as a result - as has been said elsewhere on this thread - you tend to get better answers to questions if the point is expressed clearly and in shall we say a fuller sense.

The second thing seems to be a specific problem with poshpaws - now while I admit that I am also slightly confused with his car, his sister's girlfriend's car, his mum's car and his dad's car, can we please be patient with each other and keep things friendly?

Have a nice day now.

foram is the only one that makes me laugh!

but yeh i understand where everyone is muddled, every car is yours, you got a clio which dont get down well anywhere bar a clio forum.... you do also seem to come across as if you know alot but then dont when questioned, i dont know alot about car pricing, i got my 1st car for a price i was happy with, managed get less than most dealers were offering and as i said, i was happy and researched alot and felt i had the best set of information by the time it came too buying day!

people may slate you for yur decisions but as long as you are happy with the price, bingo aint it

if they have that much cash to throw away send it to me you lost what nearly 2 grand on the fiesta then trade it in for a focus so an extra 3 grand to pay drive that away and lose 1.5 to 2 grand straght off thats 6-7 grand of a loss no brainer to me did you also know the 1.6 tdci has a dpf? are they prepared to pay over 1000 to have it repolaced around the 75k mark from ford, independant is 350 for the part then they have to make it fit so say 100-150 labour then the eloys fluid top ups at 150 quid for 3 litres i can only be 100 percent honest the fiesta is a nice car nowt wrong with it its not a focus but thats the point at the end of the day.
