* Reader bags Corsa for 5400 * Have you done a great deal? * Find hot supermini deals here...
A What Car? reader has managed to buy a brand new Vauxhall Corsa for just over 5000.
Sandra Docherty, from Helensburgh in Scotland, spotted a 1.0 in Life trim in Arnold Clark in Glasgow for 8995. The list price is over 10,000.
Life trim cars went off sale at the end of last month, so with some determined haggling, a Toyota Corolla to scrap and further discounts through her GM credit card Sandra secured her Corsa for a whisker under 5350.
She put her deposit down on Sunday and the car was delivered on Tuesday.
'It's the first new car I've ever had,' said Sandra. 'I'm absolutely delighted.'

Fiat Grande Punto
Fiat's Grande Punto offers masses of space at a very reasonable price and, with a 3255 discount, it's even better value. Find a five-door Fiat Grande Punto 1.3 Multijet 90 Eleganza for 10,740 at internet dealer Fiatsupasaver.com.
Super-stylish looks and a grin-a-minute drive make the Ford Fiesta a fantastic supermini choice. Better still, Dealdrivers.co.uk is offering 2038 off the list price of a three-door 1.4i Edge model - so you'll pay just 10,607.
Peugeot's 207 scores highly for image, quality and it's smooth to drive, although prices are a little steep. Sweeten the pill with a 2096 discount from Motorlogix.com, which is offering the three-door 1.6 HDi 90 FAP Economique Plus for 11,799.
Seat's sporty supermini is already a bit of a bargain, but the engines are feeling rather dated. Dealdrivers.co.uk is offering a 1290 discount on the five-door Seat Ibiza 1.6 TDi CR Sport, making it just 11,695.
Affordable, good to drive and spacious: the Corsa is a great all-rounder. We're not offering them at half price, but Dealdrivers.co.uk is selling the three-door 1.0-litre 12v Life (AC) for just 9206 - a discount of 1549 on the list price.
