    Honda XR's don't have keys except for the shitty lock on the steering head. They are kickstart and fuel tank doesnt have keys so I call bullshit on that story. The L series of XR650L do come with electric start but rare as fuck here

    Don't be sexist, but I think that people who see you on the street just know more about you bc you are seen more on the channel. Obviously include everyone in the conversation, but I think that might be an explanation.

    Buying or selling a used car these days is just a shit show, everyone thinks they are a 'trader' these days & think they are some sort of commercial genius. Any car your selling 'needs paint' any car your trying to buy is just wildly misrepresented by the seller in the hope that when you get there you'll just accept the issues as you've made the effort to go see it. There's always been an element of this in the 30 years I've been driving but since the advent of social media sales its got much much worse.

    Pro tip: that long damn email, don't boost SJWs. It's well known that traditional male car dealers see women as easy prey. The whole "respect women" feminism movement is worth avoiding. SJWs, how about, respect everyone equally, no victim culture. Any dealer or anyone behaving like that needs to be told immediately that they're being disrespectful. Then use the "vote with your feet" and walk away.

    And as for the woman selling her car sell the car and buy or trade your car with a private seller your'll get a better deal and your'll both be happy that's why when you buy a car always test drive it and make sure it suits your needs. Ps stand your ground and if you don't like how there behaving say no I'm not selling the car to you I'm going to put it up online and sell it there instead.

Stupidly, he thought he knew a lot about Abarths and that it was worth more than it was, no abarth enthusiast likes the 695 xsrs and he still has it online for £14 k which is £1k more that I bought it last Christmas 😂 Karma.
