    Default 2 Hours and 28 Minutes!!!!

    I arrived at the dealers to collect the Signum today, one of the other sales guys called a prospective customer, telling him that my Astra was now in, 2 hours 28 minutes later, just as I was leaving he walked in the dealership, saw the Astra and bought it!!!

    So it is heading to Norwich to live!!

    I see my Astra is finally gone off the forecourt. Someone's in for a shock.

    Innocent looking Design Sporthatch with full VXR brakes, Bilstein B12 suspension kit and 200hp remap.

    Yeah, the standard VXR Ferodos don't last long either. I put 15k on them and they were half gone. £77 I think the pads cost.

    Actually it did'nt. It had the network Q check whilst I was there and it did not need a thing doing to it. The front tyres were apparently just above the network q limit, so they were left. Just needed a ****** good clean!!!

    I assume that as they will have made a profit on my Signum, and the fact that they could sell my Astra within hours of it coming in, I suppose they figured £700 was worth the small effort. The £700 is I assume the net profit they made as they will have to put a Network Q warranty on it.

    I still find that strange, my Signum was given a Network Q warranty although there is still 2 years of the manufacturers warranty left on it.

    the network q warranty costs about £250 so that does not give a great profit margain,by the time they have serviced the car and any minor repairs etc they wont have made much of a profit,yes they would have made a profit on your car but any losses from the p/x,deals that you may have made,any extras (mats,mudflaps etc) all eat into this profit,unless as you said the total profit is £700 in which case what i said is correct £1000-£1500
