Not another dealer!
« on: January 08, 2009, 08:50:09 pm »
I've been lurking around (and posting a bit) for a few days now, so thought it was about time I actually said hello...

Hello :wave:

Some of you will, I'm sure, already know me from such places as MINI2, NF500 and The FIAT Forum (are we allowed to say that name on here? :P ) but for those that don't my name is Simon and I work for the Abarth Newbies, Wessex Garages, in Bristol, Cardiff, Gloucester and Newport (sorry John, you're no longer the only person in the South West selling Abarth ;) )

Sadly, my knowledge of Abarth is, so far, limited to driving a Grande Punto home last night and again tonight (I leave the product knowledge bit to those that actually sell them) so hopefully I'll learn something from you guys...

What I will be able to bring to the party is a bit of unbiased help or advice to anyone that has any general queries relating to the whole experience of buying a car, finance, warranty, servicing etc, etc, etc as one thing I cannot stand is the negative image the Motor Trade has in this country, and it is my mission in life to prove that not all of us are as bad as some people would think.

Look forward to speaking to you all soon :)

    Welcome Simon, No problem having another dealer in the south west. Its nice to know that there is someone close enough to do some dealer transfers without putting 200 miles on the car.
    Keep an eye on my stock and if there is anything you really need give me a call.
    Its nice to hear a dealer admit that they dont know everything about Abarth. If you need any help Jon Clapp and I are really a pair of Abarth anaracks and would be happy to help. We've both been to the factory and had the G.P. flat out around the Bolocco test track at Turin.
    As soon as you can you need to get an Esse Esse on the road. You cannot possible sell a kit without letting people experience it. There are a few on here that have driven my car and although opinion is divided throughout the country, I've not had one yet that has said its not worth the money.
    Good luck
    John

    Welcome Simon...

    Thanks for the welcome John ;D

    Same applies the other way round with stock, if I can be of any help give me a call :thumb:

    If/when we do put an Esseesse kit on it will be at Cardiff, so I doubt I'll get much chance to drive it :(

    greetings mate ;) nice of you to say hello  ;D

    Welcome mate.  :wave:

    Thanks for the welcome both ;D

    Just keep claiming you need it for test drives for customers, the little lie will come so easily once you've had a go  :thumb:
