    To you 4 new tyres are £900 assuming they're Pirelli Pzeros (a little more if Michelin), new brakes and pads all round are £2,200, a full service assuming it's a major rather than minor service is £1,000 (£500 if the latter), full diamond cut wheel refurb is around £500 for all four.

    So factor in those prices when making your decision - a good, clean PPI and I reckon that's a fair price.
    Thanks for the info. I think the price is pretty fair with the extras. The warranty is a 3rd party so can't get anything off that price through the dealer. And they are firm on the £52k price with all the extras. The salesman was going to knock me me £150 off but the manager wouldn't do it if they replaced the tyres and brakes

    £150 off a £52k car? That's not even 0.3%! Salesmen eh?

    Are you going to buy it?

    That's what I thought! But they are adamant the car is already priced to sell and is the cheapest. They won't knock any money off for cash but have said they'd refurb the wheels, 4 new Pirelli tyres, new discs and pads on the front and a service which is due in August. I am waiting for some info on the warranty before I commit to buying it. Looking around similar models are a few grand more so it is the cheapest I can find. I am also wanting the Sepang Blue and manual so they are few and far between

    Sounds like a fair deal apart from the Pirelli's. Insist on Michelin PS4S and the deal's a good un.

    They are already fitted unfortunately. They've changed them like for like.

    And I know mate, it's just general chat most of it but a lot of helpful advice for a newbie.

    This remind me when I bought my car. They would not move on the price.. 2 weeks later...after some hard negotiation...I got £4k off.

    I can tell you, those cars are not moving... wait for them to call you in a week or so and bleed those stealers...sorry dealers...always get confused between those 2.
