SHAME - BMW Park Lane

So I was thinking of getting a K1300S to replace my 06 plate K1200S... spotted one on the approved used list online and despite my horrendous experience in relation to the purchase of a car (and aftersales on both the 2 x car and 1 x bike) I decided I'd take a look...

Initially it looked quite positive... Called up and arranged to go and see it. Bring your documents with you the salesman says, maybe we can do the deal on the spot... So I turn up... he appraises the bike and concludes that he can offer 5200, which he acknowledges is book. I've done my research and note that similar bikes are going for between 6000-6500, still with the inevitable negotiation that's always going be 5500 to 6000 so I thought OK doesn't sound too bad.

Went go to see the bike in the garage, looked good... whoops the tax is out, so no deal today.. OK no problem let's speak Monday.

Would you believe it... called back today... I've spoken to my boss and the best we can offer is 4000 for your bike, in the space of 2 days it's dropped 1200!!!

Funnily enough I told them to stuff it where the sun doesn't shine [Angry] utter waste of my time...
