Following a complaint from Trade Cars (bargaincarsdirect.co.uk, Boyz Toyz), and in light of threatened legal action against the club, I am hereby requesting that no posts or threads are made on this forum regarding Trade Cars that could be perceived as libellous, inflammatory, or potentially reputation damaging, unless you have documented evidence to back up your claims. As always, opinions are allowed as long as they are clearly identified as being in your opinion, as are truthful, first-party experiences, but hearsay will be removed - although I would ask that you report any adverts on Piston Heads, Auto Trader etc. that you feel are inaccurate rather than discussing them on the forum.

Regards,
mawby

I see they're another one to spam PH continually with "We buy any car!" ads.

I hate that.

So that's Trade Cars, www.bargaincarsdirect.co.uk (wouldn't work without the www for me), Wycombe. Best not say anything bad about them though, in fact probably best off just not dealing with them at all I'd say. Just to be on the safe side.

Ive not read much of the threads, i spoke to the guy once and he seemed a decent chap tbh, whats the problem with them? or is it all speculation? they seem to sell a lot of cars.

IMO they are just a regular trader with NO history (certainly no horror stories on here?) of selling poor/dodgy cars.

Well, it was several traders, holding several accounts on here, most of which posted defensive comments while failing to annouce their affiliation with said businesses.

The reader must draw their own conclusions about a car trader that needs to follow such practices. Also consider:

The quality of the advertising (and the quality of the information contained therein)
The pricing strategies
The threat of legal action in the face of valid questions being raised.

Oh I love legal action threads, is has so much to say about the company making the threat.

This is my personal opinion and not that of this club and I am not referring specifically to, Bargain Cars Direct or Quality Used Bargain Car in Wycombe, but generally to any company who makes threats of legal action to web base organisations. Personally such actions by a company would make me avoid them like the plague.

Trade Cars, also known as Bargain Cars Direct. They're in Wycome you know. I also believe their website is www.bargaincarsdirect.co.uk

Probably best if we don't keep mentioning them though?

It might be best if we stop mentioning Trade Cars, also known as Bargain Cars Direct in Wycombe - I've just done a google search for Trade Cars, Wycombe and this thread was #10 on the first page.

We wouldn't want anyone getting the wrong impression about Trade Cars, also known as Bargain Cars Direct in Wycombe just because they threatened legal action against this forum due to a couple of members thinking that they sell overpriced, tatty Supras and have abusive fanboys trolling the place, aruing with anyone who says anything slightly derogatory about Trade Cars, also known as Bargain Cars Direct.

So, I'm never going to say anything about Trade Cars, also known as Bargain Cars Direct, Wycombe again.

Hmm...i was wondering why 'company' would consider such action did seem rather bizzare.

However having read such maturity and sophistication shown in the responses so far, one cannot envisage what unpresumtuous annotations were made before??
Please fellas this is a very respectful forum dont spoil its reputation with adolescent puerile behaviour.

This is a very respectable forum, though I feel that if a company is threatening legal action against the club then they must be "threaten" in some way or another? Did some truth about certain cars emerge which a normal buyer would not pick up on? Again this is my own personal opinion & nothing connected to the club, though I think that Trade Cars, also known as Bargain Cars Direct in Wycombe should not always take comments as negative & see them from a more constructive point of view, as mentioned above again this is my own personal opinion.

Oh, it's you. How is your glass house these days?

Anyway, this forum is built on mature and sophisticated responses ;)

How about you actually read some of the threads these so-called reputable traders have been involved in. Then again, you'll just presume that we are all Jurgen's bum chums and have to have a pop at any other trader who appears.

Careful with those stones now. :)

Boyz Toyz, car dealer, in the High Wycombe area.... using the same website URL http://www.bargaincarsdirect.co.uk/156259/index.htm

That's strange, I wonder why they changed the name. Do you think they might have received some bad reports against them and changed their name?

So that's Boyz Toyz, formally Trade Cars (or bargain cars direct), in High Wycombe. (www.bargaincarsdirect.co.uk).

Abz
12-05-10, 16:16

Just checking these are not the same guys are they?
If they registered the same name as someone else are they not infrigment of the law?

No they're a separate company it seems.

We're talking about Boyz Toyz in High Wycombe, Japanese car dealer formally called Trade Cars.

Don't say anything bad about them though. I'm sure just because they've changed their name they're perfectly fine now.... er... I mean obviously they were before, don't set the lawyers on me guv!

No - but that's Bargain Cars Direct Ltd. Not Boyz Toyz - an entirely different company that just happens to have a vaguely similar address. :D

lets not get in to the region of anything that could be seen to be intended solely to damage their business folks.

This thread is here to make it clear that discussions around their cars and services are not allowed.

Some of the posts above are not really adhering to that and becoming more of a discussion.

It is good to be clear that they are trading under 2 different names, but our intention is not to affect their business, only to ensure that they are not discussed on the forum be it good or bad service.

It would be interesting to see what a court did think if the garage complained and it did get to Court, particulary if it was argued that Supracars was stirring up the rest of the forum and making people respond with negative comments. Many might suggest that the Supracars was provocating your members Branners and perhaps he is responsible for any legal action the garage might bring. Perhaps you should ban him for the good of the forum.

Will be doing a tidy up on the thread but I think the discussions need to stop now. There will be enough left in here to highlight why we do not allow discussions about Trade Cars or whatever they wish to call themselves now.

The beady eye of doom is also swinging towards supracars for making themselves a bit too obvious in this thread.
