    Default Murphys Law....

    Typical....
    I spot what I think is a really nice car at a dealership- Elite CDTI 150 Vectra. So me and the wife set off for a trip to have a gander around the thing - possibly a test drive etc etc. We get there and it has a SOLD sign in the windscreen. Yes I know I should have phoned first but how many people actually just go on spec???? I know I'm not the only one.
    Worst part about it was that the car was an absolute corker... Leather was immaculate, beautiful thing
    but I'm not bitter (well yes I am actually.....)

    not all cars with sold signs get delivered, the punter buying it might get refused on finance, still could be worth a call to the sales manager.

    That would also be known as 'The Law according to Sod!'

    I'm sure you'll find one that's even better than this one.

    Edit: Good point by HB39AA - always worth a shot! Get your name down with the sales manager so you're the first person he calls if the sale falls through.

    Didn't know that - might give them a ring tomorrow although I have just emailed Motorpoint in Derby for a guide price on my Saab against a Vectra SRI CDTI....
