One lesson I have learned recently is that when buying privately cash is king. You are really opening yourself up for a lot of effort if you buy private and applying for finance.
Can probably negotiate a better deal with the seller too if you can pay it all upfront.One lesson I have learned recently is that when buying privately cash is king. You are really opening yourself up for a lot of effort if you buy private and applying for finance.
Nice one. Glad it's working out for you man. Keep us postedYeah, seems the current modus operandi is to try and get the seller to accept as low as possible of a cash offer. I dropped back from R101k to R95k for a cash offer with the buyer starting at R83k. After I explained that a dealership will give me R80k and for me to entertain the hassles of a private sale it has to be at least R15k more than the dealer price. That said he did offer to do the roadworthy and everything all I need to do is the yellow transfer form when they come to collect the Corsa after payment is in my account. so not really a lot of effort on my side.
Where is PostmanPot - he would have loved this opportunity to say "told you so!"
This really is a pretty car. I have never liked any of the corsa's. This one of only a handful of French cars I really like. Congrats.Test drove this one yesterday and the 2.2 petrol is excellent. Still not too fond of the manual box, it feels notchy like my old Astra G, but I can live with it.
The only potential snag here is that I do not have the cash and will need to sell my Corsa first. The dude selling the car is going to trade it in this weekend unless it sells privately and I'll only be able to to buy it from the dealership since I'll need to trade in.
Congrats! I'm looking forward to hearing your views on owning the Peugeot
Here's the thing with MFC Roux: Wesbank won't let you finance a car over 72 months WITH a residual (you can only choose either or with Wesbank) while MFC will let you do both (a bad idea I admit but still very popular thanks to modern car prices). Also MFC interest rates have been very competitive against the other quotes I've received through dealerships in the past.I have financed two cars through MFC and one through Wesbank.
