My 15 plate superb is outside, all plated, ready for work...

Jnr wants back into taxi driving full time, i said he could have my car at £300 a month, he would have to insure through the base, £2000 a year, and his PDA would be £80/week (£4000 a year), the advantage over a base car being he would have a decent car, clean and in good order, but not a lot cheaper, but he thinks that means he gets the car as his after the his paid off.....cheeky tvvat......total £184/week plus fuel

so i can order a Mk3 Superb on the 66 plate... 8)

I'd pass on that one if I were you, didn't he go into it before full time and went and got another job? Be careful, be very careful indeed.

he did, after changing bases to 1 that took £320/week off him for a E7 that cost £100+ a week in fuel and never saw any bus jobs then when he chucked the keys in the base wanted £75 for a tank of fuel yet it was empty when he got it....


hes learning the hard way....slowly....

he was taking £900 to £1000 and having £500 himself with tips and extras, and his current PAYE (£28K) has left him with a bad experience so.......and ive bid on a school run for him too

I've heard all that one before with people who come back into the trade. As soon as they get fed up of working every weekend they're off.
