  • Honda XR's don't have keys except for the shitty lock on the steering head. They are kickstart and fuel tank doesnt have keys so I call bullshit on that story. The L series of XR650L do come with electric start but rare as fuck here

  • An old friend of mine is a car salesman, to say they are sexist i would say..... you're probably right 🤣 in his words "all a female owner mean is its not been serviced!", while I told him he's full of it it is frustrating that my girlfriend lives up to this quote😑

  • the nicest dealer ive ever dealt with was a Rolls Royce dealer... i had absolutely no business being in the showroom or worth his time, he made more in commission in one sale then I would make a year and he was still super kind and hospitable

  • Don't be sexist, but I think that people who see you on the street just know more about you bc you are seen more on the channel. Obviously include everyone in the conversation, but I think that might be an explanation.

I appreciate that you guys are giving us content fairly often but its starting to become boring at this point

  • Abbie - calm down sweetheart, car dealers are dicks to everyone and not just women! Just stand your ground, be authoritative, and walk away if you need to. On a separate note guys, bit ironic of you to prove that you're not racist or sexist by being ageist instead!

  • Buying or selling a used car these days is just a shit show, everyone thinks they are a 'trader' these days & think they are some sort of commercial genius. Any car your selling 'needs paint' any car your trying to buy is just wildly misrepresented by the seller in the hope that when you get there you'll just accept the issues as you've made the effort to go see it. There's always been an element of this in the 30 years I've been driving but since the advent of social media sales its got much much worse.

  • Pro tip: that long damn email, don't boost SJWs. It's well known that traditional male car dealers see women as easy prey. The whole "respect women" feminism movement is worth avoiding. SJWs, how about, respect everyone equally, no victim culture. Any dealer or anyone behaving like that needs to be told immediately that they're being disrespectful. Then use the "vote with your feet" and walk away.

  • And as for the woman selling her car sell the car and buy or trade your car with a private seller your'll get a better deal and your'll both be happy that's why when you buy a car always test drive it and make sure it suits your needs. Ps stand your ground and if you don't like how there behaving say no I'm not selling the car to you I'm going to put it up online and sell it there instead.

    • It was up online, the guy offered me one figure and got it down to paying off the finance. Stupidly, he thought he knew a lot about Abarths and that it was worth more than it was, no abarth enthusiast likes the 695 xsrs and he still has it online for £14 k which is £1k more that I bought it last Christmas 😂 Karma.
