Haggling by e-mail - top turkey
First post here - so happy new year regulars!

Although I am some way off replacing my car, I was wondering if anyone has ever tried agreeing on a price by just using e-mail? Personally, I would travel more or less anywhere in the UK to get a decent price for a nearly new car, and would feel far more confident haggling by e-mail rather than in person. How willing do you think dealers would be to engage in this type of haggling, if they could be assured that I was 'serious'?

Don't think this would work. If you are buying a "nearly new car", how would you know what it is like without seeing it?
A dealers description would be different from one dealer to the next.
For this reason the dealer would not take you serious.

You might find someone selling on ebay or ebid would be prepared to do it to a limited extent - there are quite a few dealers openly selling on there.
