  1. A little update to say eventually i was paid back in full for the car, they have also let me keep their courtesy car for the time being as a gesture of goodwill which I think is the least they could do. As a side note, i was repaid by BCA or the British Car Auctions. I think this must mean that Sw car supermarket doesn’t actually own any of their stock and are simply selling cars on behalf of the auctioneers before they even get to auction. i can only advise anyone on here to steer well clear of them in the future!!
  2. As I already mentioned, they are very cleaver in their sales technique, they arrange a handover day with an appointment with their handover team, after being told on the phone it 100% ready and looking like new. They have a very glitzy showroom with hundreds of expensive very clean polished cars and that is how i expected mine to be after all why wouldn’t it? You get sat at a nice desk and asked nicely to pay the balance so they can present you with your new car, obviously that’s not always what you get!!
  3. This is a huge showroom with best part of 1000 cars over two sites, not really a back street dealer
  4. If only I had but they are an hour drive from me, I got a lift there and was left to do the paperwork, I was taken to a desk and told my car was ready and perfect. They have a very impressive showroom with a lot of high end cars all gleaming and you fully expect that is what you will get. Cleverly they make sure the money is paid before you see it!! Very easy to caught up in it all when you’re looking forward to a new motor!!
  5. I did this on Wednesday when I went to collect the car, I was there for five hours!! Sent the md a message last night and have emailed also but no replies
  6. Thanks, I didn’t realise there was an ombudsman, I’ve already threatened them with trading standards but to no avail. whenever I call they just say that they can’t authorise the refund and I need to speak to whoever and then they have an excuse and so on. Today they asked for my bank details for the refund but nothing came, they are a huge company and so I don’t understand why the wouldn’t just give me my money back and be done with it I told them on Saturday I would give bad reviews if they messed me about any more and they promised to ring me back on Sunday. They didn’t so I started writing reviews on autotrader etc.. I had a very early call from them this morning ranting at me about the review saying it’s not helping the situation!!
  7. So to cut a very long story short I bought an Audi Q7 10 weeks ago for best part of 20 grand. It took the dealer, Sw car supermarket three weeks to prep the car and when I picked it up some of the agreed work was incomplete, 5 days later they pick the car up and leave me a courtesy car, six weeks and lots of trouble later I return to pick the car up only to find it’s badly repaired and still is incomplete, not even cleaned, I leave the car at the garage and return home and write an email outlining my reasons for rejecting the car and that I want my money back. obviously I think that haven’t a leg to stand on and will simply return my hard earned. However this isn’t the case and five days later I still haven’t seen a penny, just more lies and excuses and the stress is slowly killing me and I just don’t know where to turn! I don’t have a credit card so paid with my debit card and also some cash, is it worth getting in to my bank? Is there anything they can do? I never realised just how poorly regulated this massive industry is until I started searching for help! Any input would be greatly appreciated
  8. Can anyone help with schoffel shirt sizing? Are they generous like most other shooting brands? I always tend to find if I order the correct neck size the shirt is huge!!
  9. Good riddance to them, flooding social media with pictures of bags of hundreds of birds like it’s an every day occurrence, no wonder people want it banned when they advertise it the way they do. Plus a lot if not most of the people they take out couldn’t give a **** about the countryside or anything to do with it, that don’t even bother picking up all the empties and dump birds in hedges. All of which I have seen first hand
  10. Section 12. Definitions of this licence seems to cover most bases including stubble shooting in the “prevent serious damage” section As I read it though pigeon guides are definitely done for as the sales and consumption section states the licence does not cover commercial or recreational shooting of woodpigeon, good riddance to them
  11. The only good I can see coming from this is the potential end of pigeon “guides” who in my opinion do nothing good for pigeon shooting.
  12. just overboard and skim, it’s the easiest method and best end result, I’ve overskimmed tons of this stuff and although possible it’s always a ball ache! Only ever lost one ceiling and that was due to distemper
  13. It’s a 2015 Challenger, 21000 miles, full Mitsubishi history, just mot’d first time manual with cloth that’s been covered from day one, we buy any van offered £9.5k plus vat, I suppose what I need to know is it worth going to dealers or will that be about it, I really wanted about 11k for it!! Which is still cheap compared to autotrader prices
  14. I could do with an honest valuation of my 2015 l200 if anyone is willing to stick there neck out!! Prices seem all over the place on autotrader and I just want an idea of what I should be looking to get if I just sell it to a garage or dealer thanks
  15. The thing I find strangest is that fellow pigeon shooters seem as unwilling to share where their birds go as they are to share the land where they shoot them!
