People can be spitefull pricks at times and car sales people and estate agents even more so...Tell them that you buy and sell cars as a hobby.
Drop a stupidly low price on the red ute and hand him your phone number and tell him to call if you want to sell that ute at that price to give you a call....
With it being on the market still, try and strike a deal, using the fact it's been for sale for so long....This I buy and sell as a hobby means squat....The leave phone number stuff just means it'll fill his waste paper basket quicker...If the place doesn't want to play ball, move on to the next place....Tell them that you buy and sell cars as a hobby.

Then get your mate to ring them up and give them a price even lower than yours a couple of days later. Might take a month or two but in the end, they will want it off their lot and could call you and you get a cracker of a deal because no one else could be bothered to take off the ugly red spoiler. You might even be able to sell the monstrosity of a spoiler once you take it off.
So I have been checking RB valuations on 2008 & 2009 VE ute's and I might have a problem that I won't be able to insure it for what the cost will be. It would seem that max insurance agreed value on a 2008 will be under $20k and 2009 maybe $20k. I can not see any dealer shaving a third of what they are asking. How can you get around that? It seems silly to pay $25K or more for something that can only be agreed at $20k, as you could drive up the road get T-boned and instantly wipe out $5k-$8k, depending on what you can get the price down to. Realistically I think a 2008 VE ute should only cost $20k at the most even with low km.
How does someone who borrows the full amount to buy one, yet can not insure it enough in the first year to pay out the loan? I can't see the finance Co even approving the loan?
