You're right.
It didn't, they (Pontiac/Buick) were such a sorry bunch of people. I ask about "Grand Am" for my cousin, wanting to see some selection. They only got 5 in the lot. Get this, this is a "BIG" dealership. They didn't even have a single new Firebird (I didn't understood their execuse, something about production...etc.).
The sales all look sad and depress, don't know why. The Chevrolet dealership looked much better with their C5 show off over there.

Anways, you right; they don't know much. All they
know is..."come test drive this, take a spinin it".

Oh well, glad I am not the one buying their.
I like the BMW dealers way better.


: Most car sales people know nothing about cars. Its even rare when they know more than just a smattering about the ones they're selling. Therefore, I doubt your E39 will impress them.

: No flame intended.

: : Hello Folks,

: : I just realize that the GM people are so ...darn annoying. I called a couple of places, trying to buy a Pontiac Firebird (Base model), getting a lot of attitude. Why? you might ask, well, my cousin works at GM so his sister (my other cousin) can get good discount as a family member (he's at Michigan and we're all here in L.A.).
: : Those GM sales people thinks that I am just checking price with no intent to buy. Gee..Whiz.. they think they got that darn Firebird musclecar and the new C5, people have to be begging them !
: : Tomorrow, I am going to drive my modified aspen silver E39 over there and see them drop their pants.
: : Like I have no intention to buy and just wasting their time (what they said over the phone).

: : I appreciate the BMW dealers, no matter what, I was treated with respect. Even if I was to buy a 318i or a 840i.

: : happy cruzing..and off the GM I go.
