Turned up nice and early to look at this white 09 gtr premium. Car was at shaks specialist cars between Oldham and Halifax. When I arrived it wasn't even there and had to wait 40 minutes for it to be driven from there supposed storage unit.

When it turned up, it was dirty, needed 4 new tyres as the bridgestone were like racing slicks, the rear brake pads were on the last legs with about 2 mill left. Plus all four alloys were massively curbed.

He said he would sort it all out, re mot it for the year and send it up to middlehurst for a service.

The sales guy said hes going to ring me on Monday for a decision, the cars up for £38k, stage 1 cobb map y pipe and upgraded discs but I still think its over priced tbh and he wont budge on price, what do you guys think.

Walk away if they can't be bothered to present it to you properly, then I think if anything goes wrong with it they will just tell you to fooook off.

something else will come up mate, he should have told you everything BEFORE you went there to see the car.

im also on the lookout for one but am being very careful to make sure its the right one

Shaks specialist cars is in Huddersfield. They do have cars stored off site but that shouldn't be an excuse for an unprepared car. Try Redline in North Yorkshire.

If they can't be bothered to have it ready for when you get there I think they've already laid out their standard of practice, don't expect them to be very bothered about sorting tyres, wheel refurb, brake pads etc...there are better examples out there for the money. Out of interest, how many miles did it have on it?

If that is how they operate I wouldn't deal with them....

As a private seller I wouldn't dream of presenting a car in that fashion!

Iv delt with shak before, hes actually a decent guy and sold me lovely scirocco R about a year ago. There was a little hot air from the sales guy but alround was a good place to buy from. He did say to me about a storage place they had as the garage couldn't house all there cars.
The car i brought was a little over priced, but was fantastic condition and ready to go.
Hope this helps

It's too expensive, walk away.

Always better to get the right car when it comes up than the car that's just available right away.
