    Default help needed

    hi guy's.... got a problem with a car that I've not received ....the trip computer is not working ...apparently the guy I'm buying it of has had it in a vaux dealership in chorley and they said it would cost £220 ...fitted

    now I just rang vaux at shrewsbury to gat a price for fitting it and they gave me the price of £1000...yes £1000

    now I'm pancaking .....the guy I'm buying the car of is going on holiday for 2 weeks soon so I need the car delivered here and he's offered me £200 cash back to get it vaux and do it here

    something doesn't seem right here ....how much does it cost to have this done ..basicly the trip puter doesn't work ..the speedo does

    If you think it looks dodgy it probably will be. You will probably never be happy with it. Personally if I had any doubts I would walk away.

    As above m8 especially if the stealers gave that price there is big difference between 200 and 1k, I would walk away and look for another car.

    tell him the cost is a GRAND AND YOU WANT IT ALL BACK not the measley £200.00 he has offered you, or get him to get it done for the so called £220.00 at the dealers he got the price from....

    Looks like your stuck with it, I would take the 200 he's offering and hope that it doesn't cost 1k.

    Keep your fingers crossed though 1k does seem expensive.

    If you still take the car then maybe get a used speedo from e-bay or something. It sounds like it needs a new set of clocks.

    - If the mile odometer isn't working how do you know how many miles its done?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
