Keep us updated (with pics - that is obligatory on JG) when you take delivery and hoping all goes smoothly.
Oh edited to add: I trust 'The Minister' is happy (?).
I don't believe they will deliver on Friday but I will make a scene at the dealer as they know my rego runs out. I will drive the old car into the showroom carpark and leave it there if needed. For now I'm trying to have faith that they will do the right thing, but in our first contact they said they had a TH coming in next week so im already doubtful. Truth is I have a motorbike and we have another car so we can make do if needed for a week but who want's to ride a motorbike in Melbourne in winter. It's 12* here today and raining a storm and there is snow on the way for the hills.
Minister is peeved as she wanted a 7 seater and doesn't understand why I churn cars at 4 years (car allowance and finance). But she is happy that (I'm not busting her chops about buying a car). We are off on holidays in 2 weeks she wants to focus on that.
For me it was an interesting experience, In the last 2 years I've spent a lot of time working with high pressure sales in a different industry but saw all the tricks of the trade which prepared me for dealing with car salesmen.
I actually enjoyed the negotiation.
Pics will follow!
