Anti-climax

Popped into my dealer today for an update on my order. My salesman was off today so another member of staff asked if he could help. I said i have a sporting on order and was wondering if there was any update. He said is it the petrol in red. I said yes and he informed it came yesterday and was in the compound.

Couldn't believe my luck and couldn't wait to see it. Anyway as i got close i noticed no leather, no CC. Yes it wasn't mine

Will ring tommorow

Re: Anti-climax

Well its being built as we speak. Hopefully it will arrive in Bristol in the next two weeks if transported by train. Knowing my luck it will come via boat.

Re: Anti-climax

I was told that every one comes by boat and the port of entry into the uk
is at Bristol.
It seems that most uk importers use Bristol to dock and unload.....must be geared up for that.
Bet you're pleased....don't worry today it's very fast by boat.
Will be interesting to see if you get the new instrument and seat designs.

Re: Anti-climax

Think it's safe to say your a wind up merchant eh! haha

as for been shown the wrong car, it happens, best to just ask for the guy your dealing with to call you if he isnt there. Always a mix up otherwise!
