    No, just bizarre. Did you test drive any other options in the 20k range? Might have helped prevent getting cold feet before getting yourself into a long finance deal.

    Sorry, we're going a bit off topic here. We were talking about your 'mates' car weren't we.

    Brother in law has one. Always liked the car. Opportunity came up which opened the door allowing me to buy one.

    Guess i am the only person this has ever happened to! :rolleyes:

    Not at all no, nobody is doubting the possibility of it happening considering it has happened.

    It's just in your recommendations thread you were looking at small used cars around the amount you received a pay-out for your written off car e.g., Fiesta, C1, etc.

    I think we are just confused at the opportunity which presented itself to increase the budget four fold and change to an SUV crossover type car. Was the opportunity that one was for sale?

    Look, this thread has gone far off topic now. Typical OcUK members to go attacking another because of posts that go beyond their understanding.

    The fact is that i upped my budget quite a bit as i decided to look at getting a car for a longer term. Not just for a couple of years. And, as i like Ford and the Puma i decided that was the car that would last me for the foreseeable. And why not?

    Anyway, guess nobody can answer the original OP. All i wanted was a general view by others.

    Asking questions does not equate attacking, it aides understanding, so maybe jump down off that high horse you're riding around on.

    That's fair enough of course, it's your money to do with what you will.

    Probably lose the £200 and spend the £1500 on a corner sofa.

    No-one can really answer though because they aren't your friend or have their feelings. What one person might do can't be related to someone else. It's akin to saying "I've just won £20k on the lottery should i buy a new car". No-one can answer the question other than the person making the decision. It's not asking if X is better than Y where the answers can be backed up with evidence.

    It purely depends on your friends preference of cars and whether they want to spend the extra. Maybe they need to spend some time to make their mind up, rather than making a rush decision based on some people online which they end up regretting as they seem to have mistakenly bought 2 cars now in the space of a week that they don't actually want!

    I agree. Its just that i gave her my view and said i would ask on a forum i am a member of.

    I told her if she not happy about the newer car to just walk away and take the hit. No point in going through with it just because she may lose £200...

    Let's not forget the basic architecture of a Sales process, also known as ORDER TO CASH :D

    How could what I said have triggered you? I didn't even quote you? It was even in support of your point? :confused:

    Old people drive me mad.

    So did you buy this car from your work mate then? Or did she buy it from you? I'm confused :confused:

    Walk into a showroom with a £5k budget, and walk out with a 5 year finance package for a 20k car. Not at all, that's why sales people earn their salary.

    So, is this you getting cold feet on the Puma and thinking of buying something else now, or your work mate?
