    And out of all of the dealers I would say I have found Audi to be the worst! My local Bm dealer is pretty good and I've just bought a new car from MB Brooklands and they have been fantastic. My local Benz dealers been really good so far as well.

    it's quite funny how they differ across the country, suppose it's not always brand related

    I'd guess a lot has to do with the environment they are working in as well.

    True, I tried Southampton, Basingstoke and Newbury and they were all pretty much the same. Although the service department at Basing was pretty good.

    you can add Whetstone, Hatfield and Bedford into that useless pile too

    Seems its quite a common thread

    The only dealer I've found that *seem* to know what they're on about is DaveR's dealer, the rest - seriously - if they were on fire, I'd supply the marshmellows

    Perhaps it's down to our expectations?

    Well of course! I expect someone working in a dealership to know a basic amount about their cars. Like that the S3 doesn't have torque steer. Solar Orange isn't a pearlescent paint. That button doesn't actually do that. You can order a car without an ashtray etc etc.

    Oh and please don't drop the keys to my new car you bumbling idiot.

    Pardon the bump....

    I'm still looking, and noticed a 59 plate car that was still Pre-facelift :think:

    Why would this be?

    It was possibly sitting in a warehouse for a while before it was actually registered. Over on the briskoda.net website there is a mk1 fabia vrs on a 09 plate and they stopped making them in 2007.
