Hahaha, that's quite funny and true what you say about sales guys having to run off into the office. Remember the guy trying to flog me the ZR went off to the office for the 4th time to try get some more knocked off it and came back with a red face. Must have got a bollocking :wohow:
Anyway, I can quite imagine what you say is correct. I've been considering buying a C4 VTS about March time so have been looking for deals - JamJar are doing one for 2,500 off the list price. I checked again the other night and under "optional extras" there's a new entry for "Delivery - £550".
£550 for delivery? What MPG must their flat back get then? Still I think I definitely will be using them as a starting point when I barter a deal at my local dealership.
The (alledged) delivery problem referred to by Watchdog on BBC 1 by the way, was not in relation to the actual cost of delivery, but rather the fact that there was no delivery in the reported cases, despite the cars having been paid for in advance.
They had several anxious and peed uff customers all making exactly that point.
Dates were (alledgedly) promised and not met time after time. Not an ideal situation when you are talking about thousand of pounds perhaps ? :xmas:
