Re: Going for a test drive

Nice...I remember around two weeks ago that feeling of driving up to the showroom and seeing that red sport sitting there just raring to get out and thrash down the streets...

Ooooh that's my old red Ka! Heheh! What a hoot. Good luck with the drive at Glos - they're a good lot

Sometimes dealers come with you, sometimes not. Just ask to see if you can go out on your own

Re: Going for a test drive

You should give me a job Si, I'm great with customers. Car sales scare me a bit though. At least with high end A/V stuff you don't get the whole 'what's your best price' in quite the same way you do.

Re: Going for a test drive

Don't be too harsh Simon, with a couple of people waiting it's difficult to please everybody. Pehaps you need more staff in at weekends.

Don't get me wrong guys, nobody is in trouble, I just like to know what happens when I'm not there, especially after what happened to HK Phooey last weekend.
