Re: £250 for a 2001 Renault Laguna 1.8 ...
It was the OH who preferred the 300C (it was a diesel version we enquired about).
I then spotted an E320 - essentially the same car (better spec, more power, lower fuel consumption), for just a bit more - and we got £2,500 for our trade-in, so it was barely more expensive - and convinced her.
That way it was (slightly) more palatable to have 'lost' £7,500 in value in 2.5 years...
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
