Sylvania BMW - I walked away
I decided to buy a brand new BMW 318d for work. The plan was to give my 530d to my wife to become the family car. So I went down to my local dealer, where I had an 8 year relationship and had purchased two cars, to part with my $50k. It was end of financial year.
The sales girl spent the best part of 20 minutes trying to get me to trade my E60 530d on a new F10. I had no intention. In the end, I told her that if she mentioned the 5 series again I would leave. Needless to say, I walked out 5 minutes later, without even being offered a test drive in a 3 series. Business must be good to let a customer walk out like that.
We now have a new Mercedes C200 CDi, but I'm still in the BMW because I prefer it over the Merc.
