All day test drive cancelled

Post by john-e89 » Mon Mar 23, 2020 10:58 am

Pretty inevitable really, I had an all day test booked with Sytners for tomorrow in an M40i from a good few weeks ago while they found one available. Shame, I was really looking forward to it and the weathers spot on for the top down all day but a very very first world problem so it’ll have to wait until........well who knows....?? Probably next year now I wouldn’t be surprised. After LOTS of deliberation decided on black body with cognac interior when it happens, at least that’s settled at last.......until I change my mind..... :roll: :lol:

Stay safe y’all. :driving:

Ah that's a pisser. :(

Latest for me is that Porsche are closing to all customers from tonight but remaining open for handovers so it may still happen yet!

Arguably you know you’re going to like it... so maybe there’s a +20% off list deal to be had if you get the thumbscrews out

Sorry to hear that OP, but I got an E-mail from Sytner earlier to say they are closing all their showrooms at close of play tomorrow other than for collection of cars already ordered.

And will be closing their workshops once all jobs booked in are finished with just some staff to sort cars for key-workers.

At least if you wait until they reopen properly I imagine the car will be considerably cheaper, and at least you have some toys while you wait!
