He should have negotiated the Satnav option with the deal. £450 for satnav seems a little steep to me. Did he buy the car on impulse? For every finance deal, there is always a clause in the contract that allows you to retract from the original deal within a specified period of time. Now time to get the contract out and read the small print. Such small prints are always used for repudiation (disclaimer) purposes. The French always say 'ATTENTION' meaning 'Be Careful'. :)

I didn't quite get what you meant by activation. I think you mean Mercedes Star Diagnostic. Yes, it is a piece of tool that is used to diagnose any mechanical problem affecting the car. It used to store information of your vehicle, programme, add and delete some information. Infact, there is a lot to be done with this Mercedes tool but it comes at a premium (onerous) price. Is that the information you wanted to receive?

Think yourself lucky when you went back he didn't say £24,750 + VAT :rolleyes:

Why do people always do that to the general public?????

Anyhow, I just have a bee in my bonnet about that so perhaps ignore me, but it does seem a little silly, you would think for giving them 25k they could throw in a few freebies assuming they haven't done already?

Are you talking about a Becker satnav unit that plugs inside the glove box?
If so, these can be bought online for £200-250.

£25,000 for an A Class. *shakes head*

Have you seen the prices off all new cars these days? Anyway, I presume when the OP said AMG he meant AMG trim spec, as buying a A45 AMG for £25k would be a bargain!
