    Without meaning to be rude, anyone had a 69 yet? :think:
    Obviously I’m talking about 69 registered cars.
    We’re now a week into September and I haven’t seen one yet! I’m on the road everyday driving my wagon and today I’ve been to Birmingham and back in the car, a 200 mile round trip and I haven’t seen any car, van, truck or anything yet.
    Have people stopped buying new cars?

    I haven’t seen any myself either, but then again September was never as busy a month as April.

    If the build times on the new Cupras are anything to go by, despite people buying new cars, the manufactures don't want to build them.

    To be honest, I don't really notice the plate change these days.

    In the good old days (many of you no doubt too young to remember!) it was once a year on 1st August. It just seemed to be much more of a big deal then and more noticeable too.

    Started to see a few knocking about now. A couple of Seats amongst them namely a black Terraco and a leon fr.
    We also got a couple of 69 plate trucks added to our fleet on Friday.
    Mmmm, that new ‘truck’ smell!:think: Is that a thing? Lol

    I work at a SEAT dealer and things are tough. We sold more than double new reg's last September Vs this September.
    A lot of other dealers are feeling the pinch too.
    Used sales is very strong however!

    Interesting point, but from my recent experience in a SEAT main dealer you'd think that they'd sold enough for the month or year, as they really couldn't be arsed to show any enthusiasm.

    Luckily I then found one younger sales guy who did give a monkeys!
