Re: Bargaining on car sale

My son ( 19 ) was thinking of buying this. CHEVROLET Kalos 1.4 16V SX 2008. 4400 CHF. Looks a little conservative for a young person.Any ideas/suggestions?

I am wanting to buy a car for between 4000-4500 Franks.
I think it will be very difficult to get that many Franks in one place.

Red paint does age quickly doesn't it? Is it time, or the sunlight that makes the paint "bloom", if a car is always garaged, does the red paint last longer?
I thought in the case of colour Red, it was exposure to the elements, possible age, garaging would certainly help.
Red Colour Magic does bring the smile back to colour red car. If you use it, remember to wear gloves & either protective or old clothing. A bottle for the whole car, should last 2 to 3 applications & I would only do it once a year.

Sensible son. Have you looked at the car insurance price for his age?
