Well ive just spoken to Craig Westwood from Audi, and it looks like things are starting to happen.
I only hope that Coulsdon takes my comments on board, so no one else has to put up with their shoddy customer service
Well you know whats going to happen if they dont !!
They have some saving grace in the fact that they may be able to pull it off next week, but if they cant then i will be ever so slightly cheesed off.
I am always optimistic as the TDI is now minted again & i will never part ex a dirty or manky car.
On occasions my part ex has been cleaner than the one i,ve bought (bikes included), but thats another story.
Flying Jaffa here we come.
I saw Mark (swatchuk) yesterday as he came for the rear lights to be swapped over. What a joy it was to see an orange S3 turn the corner.
Nice lad as well. Spent a lot of money on it.
Incidentally he was stopped by the local plod on the way to my house which does,nt bode well for me at all now i know he is on the look out for Jaffa Audis
The new S3 is going to be definitely worth all the hassle as going to look absolutely stunning.....Audi Exclusive paint colour and no hint of orange!
Ps: anybody that's on the face book page keep quiet lol....see how long I can keep the secret lol
as long as u not driving!!
Five years of Audi ownership Nige! I'm having counselling for it, but it's not getting any easier, so the drink will only help;-)
and who the heck do YOU think you are if you walz into a showroom all know-it-all, sneers and looking down your nose at the staff then serves you right if they don't respect you or even work hard for your business. Why should they demeen themselves just for a sale? I assure you the snotty buyer does NOT get the best deal - he may think he has. In some markets demand for products or services is healthy and despite assumptions to the contary it is NOT always a buyers market.
Just a question, has anyone ever got a test drive without a ****** rep sitting there?
So much emotional hot air and a subject matter repeated on every car Forum I have ever visited.
Most dealerships are different as are the staff, and generalisations rarely apply.
I visited several Audi dealerships prior to purchase, they all varied. At one a large framed salesman was overbearing and bullying, at another the female was smarmy and tarty, all tight skirt and pointy tits, and another the very epitome of courtesy and ability to listen to MY needs.
As always when buying I never make the mistake of thinking that I'm going to be a buddy of the salesperson and see through the charm and bull****, but do recognise basic good manners. The 'have a seat and a coffee' scenario is old hat but if you're man or woman enough and have self confidence it need not make you feel obligated. Occasionaly I will not take a seat or drink which usually confuses and diminishes their control over you and the situation, and I will take a walk round the showroom and outside if being made to wait.
There is one reaction to my initial enquiry at a showroom which sends me straight out the door FAST, and that is when I'm asked " If we have the right car for you sir, will you buy today", it's straight out of the Childrens Primer To Selling. The arrogance of the question is breathtaking, but it's part of their training - bless.
You also get and good as you give. In the end people buy from people and who the heck do YOU think you are if you walz into a showroom all know-it-all, sneers and looking down your nose at the staff then serves you right if they don't respect you or even work hard for your business. Why should they demeen themselves just for a sale? I assure you the snotty buyer does NOT get the best deal - he may think he has.
