First off, I must apologise for my leave of absence. I’ve been spending a few weeks down on the south coast, catching up with some old friends of mine who live in Bognor Regis.
While I was down there, my friend (who shall remain nameless) was looking to buy a used car and, being the petrolhead in my social circle, I was tasked with providing as much sound advice on buying second hand cars as I could.
Should I buy diesel? Should I get an extended warranty? Should I worry about resale values?
All in all, it turned out to be a bit of a busman’s holiday and, combined with the shocking weather, my week in Bognor turned out to be as much fun as, well, a week in Bognor.
In the end, I pointed my nameless friend towards usedcarsnearme.co.uk, a good website for finding used cars all over the UK.
Not only does this get my friend off my back, it also means that he can send me the links to the cars he wants, for me to give him the thumbs up or thumbs down.
Maybe next year I’ll go to Lanzarote…
