    The final offer was a fraction under what I paid for her and then they take the £500 excess off.

    To my mind that is a good result. Your excess is your excess and was always going to be deducted. The fact that they paid out pretty much what you paid for the car is a result surely?

    I should probably start a new thread in buying advise in anticipation of the chase to find my next toy. 

    I might drive over to local Porsche dealer tomorrow and see what they have to offer and maybe test drive one. 

    Ah, the hunt begins, a most enjoyable part of the process.


  4. Two dealers, with two different cars, telling different porkers perhaps?


    You are buying an older car, it will almost certainly have issues, the smart money suggests keeping some cash back for maintenance.

    That's just it Scubaregs I got no warning until the renewal letter said they would be taking x amount out of my account just before it was  due, insurance companies are sometimes a little devious IMO hoping you will let it take it's course, the letter arrived with just a day or so before renewal possibly hoping I would just pay and not challenge it. It was only when I made the call to them that they had a change of heart and reduced it. I personally think that could be seen as trying to pull a fast one. Almost £80 more than last year is not a small increase. The other company I use gave me a better deal this time £20 cheaper than last year, I think there a few companies who reward loyal customers but sadly not many.


    Sneaky indeed.
