I've never bought a car without haggling.


Also haggled the price of my sofa down.

Good job really, as one of the cats has now pissed all over it. :roll:

I don't think I've ever bought a sofa/car/house/anything pricey without haggling.

If you don't ask, you don't get.

When I went to buy my first CD player (the first CD player in our house) in 1992 my mum decided to come along to “haggle”.

She tried to “haggle” me some blank cds to record onto. Way ahead of her time, my mum.

Well that's the middle of next week before I actually get it then. Fortunately I'm an old fucker now and fairly patient, so I'll just play Peggle 2 and be chilled about things.

Stupid rally.

I’ll take bets on whether Heatedly has chosen and put a deposit down on his next car before he even gets hold of this one.

Why wouldn't he. If they have someone phone up and offer £24k for a trouble free trade sale then that's a good option for them.

On the upside, you can phone the original dealer and ask if it has TPMS

It has TPMS, I am willing it into existence on the Fastback.

Also another thing that Hyundai fucked up, the ISOFIX is missing from the Fastback spec, but it's definitely got it.

The omens are good for TPMS.

New carburettor on the Honda has worked a charm. New PB set on the back garden.

Damn these old Ford’s sailing through their MOTs. I say every year my 16 year focus will fail and I’ll buy something new, and every year it passes it’s MOT with no advisories. In fact it’s only failed once, for a damaged tyre wall, which required a new tyre. Not a deal breaker.

Power steering line is slightly corroded, brakes are slightly unbalanced.

CAR GET! Turns out it came over on the boat Saturday, so the guy got it registered and taxed today, and we did the switch this afternoon.

First things first, let's get the TPMS issue settled.

Hyundai really have fucked up the specs on their website, and even their own staff are giving out duff information.

Yes I think it was certainly up there with fear of a No Deal Brexit in terms of weighing heavily on the national psyche.

It is crap though, every single fucking thing that Hyundai list the Fastback as not having, it has. I will inform them of their errors.

The wagers have already been placed at work, I have said I will keep the car for A MINIMUM OF TWO YEARS, and the bet was placed at ONE POUND.

My colleagues were practically taking my fucking arm off to place their bets.

As a more interesting sweepstake can we predict what you’ll buy and what reason you’ll give for the Hyundai going?

Not exciting enough. Will be something reasonably bonkers next. Then something dull again next time. You know the pattern by now, surely?

Not next time. He’ll have had enough of Korean cars for 3 months at least.

I think you're underestimating what a feisty little number the i30N is. Whilst it doesn't look particularly bonkers, it's pushing out 275bhp, has a proper diff, and can be put into 'N' mode which is basically track mode. 0-60 is 6 seconds, it's limited to 155mph, and it has launch control.

It leaves a Golf GTi for dead and isn't that much slower than a Type-R round a track.

I loved the ST to bits, the i30N Fastback is basically just a shinier, newer riff on that, with a very sexy bottom.

It's also loaded with all the tech and toys you could possibly want.

Standard issue pics, I've been taking pics of my cars at this spot for many years now.

I've only put 25 miles on it since collection, so can't give a comprehensive report (yes I know that must be upsetting), but it's pretty much what I was expecting in terms of driving. Basically very much like the ST but with a bit more power, and the diff definitely helps it pull out of corners. I haven't seen the high side of 100mph yet through.

The driving mode selection works very well, NORMAL turns it into a nicely compliant standard car, SPORT gets a bit more spicy and N MODE is pretty crackers, although not as remorselessly so as 'R' mode in the Type-R. (There's also ECO and N CUSTOM, I'll be having a proper play about with N CUSTOM tomorrow.)

Tech wise it's got all the toys, a nice big touchscreen that does swipey iPad style stuff, and the factory fit sound system is about average I'd say.

The exhaust is a bit hooligan-esque in N mode, but the juvenile side of me rather likes it. (In N CUSTOM mode I could dial back the exhaust if I wanted to.)

Two years. Minimum.

It's not the worst factory fit system I've heard, but it's certainly not the best* either. Standard issue two speakers front and rear, and two tweeters in the A pillars.

Thing is though, for my usage it'll be fine, since I pretty much just have trance on 100% of the time, so it's not like I'm trying to appreciate the nuances of one of Beethoven's finest symphonies.

A quick Google around reveals multiple guides/recommendations on how to improve the factory fit system in the i30N, but it's fine for my usage scenario as is.

* The Citroen C6 I had was the best factory fit system I've ever heard, it had about 86352 speakers and a seriously meaty sub with its own amplifier and some sort of pre-amp or something. It was fucking bananas good, those crazy French.

The Harmon Kardon in my Mini is brilliant. I'd been pleased with the Canton upgrade in my Octavia but this blows it away.
Even with the roof down you get big slabs of bass and it's lovely and sharp.

Standard systems in Discoverys are pretty good. They had an amp and a sub in the boot door.

My Puma is better, obviously.

I’m assuming every time he says that he means limited-slip diff. Because otherwise it makes no sense.

LimSlip is barely above pussy mode, though. Locking diffs / live axles are where it's at.

Yes that's the fella, splendid things, technological marvels.

It all just makes the car nicer to drive.

A mate at work recently got a BMW M140i, and by his own admission, even though he really wanted a bonkers mental rear wheel drive car (it puts 335bhp to the rear wheels in what is basically a standard hatchback), he concedes it has 'too much power' and is an unruly fucker to keep under control.

I'd rather be on the i30N side of the fence than the M140i side of the fence.

Lovely car H. I love Hyundai arses as well. They always get them bang on. Love the colour too, very unusual.

I fell in love with mine. I even named it, and frequently patted the dashboard after it had successfully transported me 700 miles in one sitting (well two, the tank was poxy in it).

I always wondered why there were so many used cars for sale in the USA with 130-180k miles on them. Then I realised they change their oil and get a service every 5000 miles and 3000 when the car gets older. Shit, I did road trips where I had the oil changed before I left and when it got back.

They even threw in a free car wash, coffee and donuts while you waited too. And 25 bucks, who's going to argue? (oh and they topped up all your fluids and even vacuumed the front carpets!.)

I'm the opposite, I quite like the shape and some of the sporty style added little details, but I don't like the colour.

Also, my boss has an i30 as a company car (dunno what spec, probably middling) and she drives it so slowly everywhere.
