    Default I hate waiting!

    Was meant to be picking up the new vectra on Thursday, maybe Friday depending on when the dealer could get it serviced and valeted. No biggie, I booked both days off work.

    I was intending on trading the Astra if it did not sell privately but there was a glimmer of hope on the horizon! A young lad saw it yesterday and wants it, but cannot raise the funds for another 10 days.

    So, my (easy to choose) dilemma is, do I just tell the lad to forget it and trade the Astra, not losing out on days off etc etc or do I wait the extra week and sell privately?! Talking about £1250 price differential minus what I would get for the extra bits I have for the Astra, maybe about £4-500 at the most.

    Are you saying that's the difference between what you'll sell it for to the guy and the trade-in price? If so then I'd say wait the 10 days, I would for an extra £1250. To avoid the guy letting you down, I'd ask him for a deposit (£500 maybe) and that'll soon show how serious he is.

    Well, to be fair to the lad, when he came to see the car he refused a test drive because he was not insured. Kinda proves he is not a test-pilot!
