I think the thin selection is an after affect of the GM strike. I drove by the big Cevy dealership here in town. They usually have hundreds of cars and trucks. Their lot was almost empty! Anyway, GM dealerships are everywhere. Find another one.

: 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.

: : : E39 Hamann Mod. Aspen Silver 97
: : : Clear tail lights !
