If I want to goto a car showroom to look-see-look-see any car without being disturbed/harassed by a sales person, I will wear slippers, t-shirt and very possibly, bermudas only. smile_clown.gif

On weekend I usually wear shorts and T-shirt only. Whether to mall, supermarket etc., Went with wife to look for her SUV last time and that salesman (new) serve us very well. We even tested 3 models 5 times. Call them up to arrange the cars and when arrived, was ready to test, but then the Brand not popular so they have to work harder.... smile_tongue.gif

So you were the guy in Lat's cartoon. Park the Mercedes far away, walk to durain stall to buy, then after that drive Mercedes there to load them......kakakakakkaa

I went to the Proton in Mutiara Damansara when the Inspira was soft launched. The lady there was really trying to push the sale. She told me that the car was really good and that I wouldn't regret buying one. I asked her if she'd driven the car and she said 'not yet'. LOL

I was surprised that most of the sales people I spoke to didn't know much about their competitors cars and could only stick to one disparaging comment on each. Perhaps it was related to their levels of English but when I was trying to weigh up C Segment cars on their merits, the sales people didn't know enough about their competitors to be able to argue the case for their cars. I assumed that stuff would be part of their training.

I went once with my Accountant to see new cars. Since I follow him only and was not really interested, this salesman was following me, step for step, so in the end I starting to ask him technical questions on the engine, which he does not know, so he left me alone.....hahahahaha smile_wink.gif

The problem is honesty in car sales might get you fired...

That is quite true.

Everyone has their sales target including the boss.

A friend last time bought a new Accord, not the current one but the one before that. And he was really @@# off as the sales person did not say a word about the new Accord being in the showroom only a few weeks later! He would have waited if they told him.

But I guess the boss has instructed all his staff to get 'rid' of the old stock before the new ones come in. Imagine the guy whispering to my friend, don't buy yet, wait 2 weeks get new model. Then 2 weeks later boss see the same buyer coming in again buying the new accord, sure sales guy kena smile_tongue.gif

I would suggest you pay special attention to the newspaper ads of the dealership you are considering. Frankly, all dealership newspaper ads. Then formulate a plan for responding to them because your baptism by fire will occur when people start walking into your showroom asking you for the deal that your dealership published in the newspaper. And how you respond to those distortions of truth (the newspaper ads) will go a long way towards your success in keeping those consumers in your showroom and possibly turning them into customers.
