I did this when I bought the Fiesta. I went around 3 dealerships to see who could do the best offer. In the end I saved £200 off list price, had free metalic paint & free mats. its always best to shop aroundCrashandburn said:Traded in my Prelude as I couldn't in all conscience flog it privately (f****d 4-wheel steering). I managed to get the trade in price up by going round 3 dealers and then getting my local one to match the best offer .
