I have always had a "If you don't ask you don't get" mindset

Middle of August I went to see an approved used 19 plate Volvo XC60 at a Volvo dealer close to where I live. I had seen the exact same spec XC60 on a 69 plate 40 miles away which was listed 1k cheaper online (showed the sales rep the car ad) so I tried to use that to my advantage but the local dealer was only willing to knock 300 off the price so I walked. As soon as I left I phoned the Volvo dealer 40miles away, reserved the car and traveled to that Volvo dealership the next day. Not only did I manage to negotiate a further price reduction I also got a full tank, the next service (due in October) and a new set of my private number plates included in the deal. It took the sales rep two visits to "go speak to the manager" but I stuck to what I was happy with and made it clear that I was willing to walk and that I didn't want a phone call on my journey home or in a few days time saying we will do the deal.
