    Bought from them in April, wasn't overly impressed with some of their service and I paid too much, but I wanted this car and the rest were too far away. At the end of the day I got the car and they made sure it all went through after a few problems so not the worst service I've ever had, and they don't need to push the sale as they sell thousands of cars.

    I paid £7800 for an 05 plate 1.9 150 with 60K on it - having seen what some people have paid for similar cars but with lower mileage I think what I paid was a great price. Everyone has different opinions of garages and supermarkets, and at the end of the day how much you want a car can cloud your judgement...

    I'd travelled 250 miles to get that one so wasn't walking away without it....

    I've been there 3 times now to try and find a car, most of it is damaged, and anything that isn't is as dear as a main agent ime, the other one however Trade Sales at Slough deals very pukka cars.

    if people go into these (or any other places) not knowing what they are buying, market values then they are likely to be ripped off, or at least pay too much.

    Must do your research before you even walk through their door, else what can you expect??

    I would agree with VV, I got the wife's old Astra SRI DTI and would recommend them to anyone, very good service, good cars and good prices.

    There is some bargains to be had at these kind of places, as Penfold said he got his cheap compared with others where I paid a bit too much, but I was willing to as I wanted the car and there was no others available locally. In the end I had to make 2 70ml journeys to get it. There was a lot of VX there and I'm sure a good deal would have been hiding amongst it all.

    Plus I wanted colour satnav and it came with 19" snowflakes, and is basically almost a facelift in a pre-facelift body, so it was quite a rare find.

    Sometimes Trade-Sales can be quite pushy I've found, and you have watch that the car your looking at isn't imported and as an old neighbour found out they literally come as seen - if there's no spare wheel or owners manual or servicing book then they won't break a sweat in getting them for you. Took him months to get his service book.
