    confused Spotted a nearly new preface saloon 2.2 DTi for sale

    Looks like V old stock ?
    Motorpoint have a 2.2 DTi Elegance 2006 56 reg here (although looks like an opel preface) for sale for £11999. If it was me I'd buy a 1.9 150 facelift for that money....

    one thing motorpoint do is buy in belgian cars, and resell them as 1 previous owner, but heavily discounted, over here.. Thats how my brother in law got his Clio RSi so cheap..it was delivery mileage, but the paperwork was in flemish and so was the originating dealers stamp...Seems that the 2.2DTi must still be on sale on the continent somewhere....

    The Vx's we've had off the have been ex-roll cars direct from VX, but if you buy any nissan, renault or the like it will have been sourced on the continent where they are cheaper..thats how they make their margins..

    and given the choice..i'd buy a facelift as well..it is a bit too steep..

    Your right about delivery mileage, that 2.2 DTi has done less than a 1K!!
    I got mine from Motorpoint and it was ex-Vx as well. Came from Sale.

    I wonder why this nearly new preface saloon 2.2 DTi is still not sold !!!!! (After 4 months since I last seen it!)
    Here


    Old engine and old shape, I'd expect it a lot cheaper than that.

    It's possible it's been a fleet car and just wasn't used. At one of my old jobs there was a 2 litre Laguna sat in the carpark for over a year and was only moved once a month for a wash and a run by the fleet manager. The guy who was supposed to be driving it was off on the sick, and had never driven the thing. 1 year old with less than 100 miles on the clock.

    Most of the ones from Sale are ex GE capital cars if it was the V6 CDTI it would be a 6 month demo car just watch the lower spec 1.9cdti as GE also own TLS Vehicle Rental so u could also be buying a 6 month old rental car.

    Good point.

    From an experienced point of view, I wouldn't touch anything from TLS / GE with a bargepole.

    Maintenance? Bodge it and rent it....
