When you come to sell the car, you'll be selling a 11/12 car instead off a 12/12 car and that will affect the value, albeit by a small amount so bugger them and their silly ideas

Now if we're talking a week or so then that's perfectly normal. My car was registered on Friday (last week) because that's when they got the car. I'll get the car a week later
Pleased to hear your car is nearly here

For my info: re the dealer registering the car, when you say that's when "they got it" does that mean the car is actually on their premises then? My dealer is very keen so I'm just interested to know what the usual process is.
