haha, youse reckon thats bad, well a few weeks ago when the BA had landed here in WA I went for a drive around to some of the dealers here to have a squizz.
First stop was Titan Ford, on a Saturday. They were about to close in about 10 minutes, but I still wanted to look. There were still heaps of salesmen and staff milling around, it looked like they were having some sort of party. But they sure as hell werent interestred in taliking to me. No matter how much I pored over the cars and gawked, they just ignored me. Two other people who arrived the same time also got the same treatment. So I thought screw you guys, and I left.
Then during the week, on a day off, I went to Range Ford. A salesman came up to me and gave me the usual. He was polite, dont get me wrong, but when I asked "do you have the BA around here somewhere" he replied "I dont know". Exit Ford dealer number two.
Third time lucky? I went to McInerny in Morely and had a good look at the car. A salesman by the name of John Johnson came up to me pretty much straight away, and proceeded to give me the low down on the new car. Whilst I made it clear that I was not interested in buying one, not at the moment anyway, he appreciated this and still explained the ins and outs of the new car, without any of the hard sell. So due to that experience I would probably go there if I was to ever buy one.
So top marks to McInerney. Geoff if you are reading this, next time you are over here you can give 'em a pat on the back.
