Best deals

So i went into my dealer today to add the ESP
and check out the seats designs i wasnt sure about before. Unfortunately the salesman i dealt with last time was unavailable, so i spoke with another. He was absolutely fantastic and quickly got onto updating my order.
Ive ended up choosing the tan (fuax = fake???) leather which looks sweet with the white interior/exterior. (any opinions on this combination???)
Whilst doing this I thought i'd also see which other goodies i could get this new salemen to chuck in with the deal. A little talk and i got myself a free set of coloured key fobs and a coat hanger to go with my ivory mats and full tank of petrol. Ive got all this confirmed in writing so am a little happier with the deal.
And so i figure.. as fiat ARE NOT budging on their prices, a good way to get anything out of the deal may be to get your dealer to hand out some accessories. Im not sure how cheap/expensive these may be to the dealer but its always nice to get some free stuff that you may have paid for otherwise. I think the service in at my dealer (uxbridge road, london) was brilliant today and am looking forward even more till delivery

It's not like a Sales Exec to shaft another one by giving away stuff to the other one's customers.

(O.K, I'm lying, it happens all the time!)

I wonder how much money your original Sales Exec cost this other one today?

The leather options are genuine leather. It's only on the Sport trim and the Pop which include a mix of fabric and vinyl / 'faux' leather

And I think the tan and ivory will look very classy

im not sure how u guys do the quotes from previous msgs.. but scrogg: what do you mean "I wonder how much money your original Sales Exec cost this other one today? " the price of the car changed from the original price by an increase of £800 - (esp200, leather600) - as i say, the other little bits were free. that helped make the service 'brilliant' but the salesmen was very helpful. ive been reading stories of bad service on this forum so was a good change i experienced.

thanks sausexed, atleast someone agrees, ive been showing my friends the brown seat/ivory interior combo and no one has yet seemed to get it (was getting kinda worried) but i think it looks classy for sure!

Sorry, it made perfect sense when I typed it!

Sales Execs are paid commission based on the profit retained in a car. The less profit, the less commission they earn.

The S.E you spoke to yesterday has agreed to give away free stuff on a car sold by your original S.E, which will be paid for out of the profit on the car, which will in turn mean your original SE will earn less commission.

I was just wondering if your original S.E had done the same thing to the second one yesterday without telling him?

Glad my commission isn't calculated like that. Profit in the car makes no difference.
