The world’s gone mad!

I have now seen it all.

I have just had a dealer call me in London; a lady has come in with a 0808 VW Tiguan tdi auto which with the specification cost £27,000 new. The car is 2 (yes 2!) days old and has 200 miles on the clock, she wants out of it, says it’s too small, unbelievable!
I just successfully bid £21,000 for it.
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been in this business it still amazes me, she might as well go get £5,000 out the bank and light her barbecue with it!

Pure motor trade!

    Tiguan will do battle in the same arena as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, although it won’t sell in the same high volume. In the world market VW will offer five engines, three gasoline and two diesel, four of which are turbocharged and one that isn’t coming here at first is supercharged and turbocharged.
    Tiguan UK sales should increase to 11,300 units in 2009, when the range is complete with a full engine line-up. A two-wheel drive version will be added by the end of 2008.
