Yea, it should be a laugh. I'm way to Edinburgh on Sunday, so it should be wicked! I'll keep you updated when my Mini arrives and let you know how they handle to PDI, etc. Fingers crossed for an S without the stumble, etc!

Spacer it has been kind of difficult to get the relevant dealer information on this site - what do you reckon everyone has had good experience's or some other divine force keeping people's opinions away

Bad rep for Robert Stern then?.

I think some dealers have a sex problem, blokes seem to get by pretty well, but my daughter seems to get a you do'nt know what you are talking about sort of attitude when she goes in with any of ours, I on the other hand get treated very well at Demon Hill, Robert Stern, Oxford Mini, and Cotswold.
Other posts in different threads seem to indicate similar "attidudes" elsewhere in UK and USA

Hmm. Tricky one Ashley. You'd think people would be up for getting together some variety of overall dealer listings, so it would be easy to "boycott" dealers who give poor service. But maybe some people just havn't seen the thread? I wonder do any of the moderators have any thoughts on the matter? I certainly thought it was worthwhile to give my two cents, even though in Northern Ireland we don't have tons of choice in the dealers. I just thought I'd give some praise where praise was due. But you'd think people would be happy to expose dealers with poor customer service, etc in one location for everyone to see and refer to. Would having it as a sticky maybe help?





PS: I'm sitting at work with my little Tesco's remote control Cooper S. Its a bargain at 9! Comes in DS too!

Still not happening Spacer - It is a shame because of the amount of stories on the site (nightmare ones) you would have thought people would want to share these with other users

**** Lovett (Bristol)

Just a quickie.... Was originally going to buy my MC from them, and went as far as putting a deposit down, then inspiration took hold and I phoned a few other dealers not quite so local, but close enough, cuting a long story short i managed to source the same car but with 4-6 weeks earlier delivery with another dealer.

Fair enough i thought not all dealers are created equally, they obviously sell their quota quicker than others. So after re-placing my order with L J Irvine & Sons in Bridgwater i wanted to do some modifications to it, pre-delivery, to which Tony Nichols at L J Irvine & Sons, was only too pleased to do (Cheers Tony) i wanted to add front spots, L J Irvine & Sons wanted 299 expensive but what the heck, then i thought about **** Lovett (Bristol), gave em a call and they wanted 357.00 for the same thing !!

The moral of the story is, whilst **** Lovett (Bristol) have fantastic service, first class sales people and a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere - they aint cheap!! Shop around.


You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off !!

Many thanks to whoever made this a sticky. So, now that it is, come on everyone. Even if you have told your story before, just put up a quick post with which dealer is involved (give a rough clue if you don't want to name names ) and a quick summary of what happened. Lets make this a central place to look for dealer info!
