Being asked, EVERY BLOODY time, on iplayer etc if I am over 16/18 and if I want to set up parental controls. No I don't, which is why I haven't. There are only two people in here, both adults.

Trying to buy a new car and having to deal with car salesmen.

After all these years, they haven't changed their script, or tactics. I hate the process with passion - it should be an enjoyable experience, not akin to getting a colonoscopy, which frankly I prefer!

At least with a colonoscopy there is an anaesthetic involved - if you’re smart.

Does carwow or something similar not exist in the states? Reverse auction, takes a lot of the pain out of the process.

I don’t believe so, but getting the price and vehicle you want is not the issue really. I want to test drive the cars, check them out etc.. to do this you have to go to a dealership and deal with salesmen, who are incapable of letting you do just that, but start pushing the, “What would it take for you to get this car today”, “We have a special on extended warranties”, “Today is the last day of the July 4th sale”, “Let me introduce you to my manager”, “Can we sit down and go over the numbers” etc., etc..

Only got another 4 cars I want to test dive!

Drivethedeal over here are brilliant, better than carwow. I've used them 4 times. That is the best way to avoid car salesmen and you get the car delivered to your door. There must be something similar over there. A great way to make car salesmen extinct which is what they should be along with estate agents.

Isn't ripe, has a random ten second window when it must be ripe (caveat: will be unseen by the human eye) and then it's f'king rotten.

It’s always good to go in with a figure you want to spend in your head. Tell them that figure off the bat and do not be ashamed of it, when you say it, say it like you mean it. Then, sit back and let them do all the work trying to get close to it.

Thanks to the Internet and various Apps you can pretty much walk in with the price you want to pay. This worked out great when we got my wife's car about 4 years ago. My problem is I don't really know what I want, so am having to do the rounds trying all these different vehicles like frigging Goldilocks.

Oh... and had the obligatory follow-up message on my phone this afternoon... "Pleasure meeting you, blah blah, just following up to see if you had any additional questions, blah blah, hope to talk to you soon, blah blah..."

To be honest, I feel for the young man, he was telling me about how he came out of the army, the hours he puts in, wife and kids etc. (and no he wasn't telling a sob story). He's just a gofer doing the grunt work. If I wanted the car you get handed over the the dreaded Financial Manager.... which is akin to a meeting with the Mafia Don!
