What about the little Ford Contour SVT? Perhaps your cousin would like that? I'd think she or he would be able to get one for a touch over 20K. Is that too much money? Its 3 series size, has a 200 HP 7,000 RPM Yamaha V6, 5spd, and a very "european" ride. Its supposed to be pretty slick. 'Road and Track' refer to it as a Ford //M2.5. They are huge M3 fans, so I doubt it was a comment they would make lightly. I have to admit I haven't driven one though.
: 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.
