    Default Dealer Gifts

    Just wondering what sort of gifts people got when they bought their cars from dealerships...

    I ask because today Charlesglen Toyota sent me four nice tumblers and all I bought from them was a $5000 used truck. I paid 10x that at Calgary BMW for a new BMW and I got shit all!

    I think it's pretty funny actually, but very much appretiated that is!

    I got Chocolates from T and T Honda when I got my Prelude. I got shit all from Infiniti although the sales guy did pay for my 3M tape.

    Charlesgen Toyota (MR-2) - Champagne & two champagne glasses. I think there were flowers in a vase and chocolates too.

    Calgary BMW (M3) - Thank-you card.

    Southcentre Fine Cars (S4) - Hardcover book from Audi, keychain flashlight and snow tires/rims from dealer. (Not sure if the latter counts as a gift or as throw-in with the car.)

    My mom got free car mats, and a steel desk set with the Mercedes logo.

    I got a pair of steel chopsticks in this huge wooden box with the Mercedes emblem on them. yay not

    And I got nothing from Infiniti except when I complained to them about the service and told them I was never servicing my car ever again at the dealership. Then they sent me a huge bouquet of flowers with an apology. However, I still never went back.

    I didn't purchase the car there, but when I had my car serviced at Calgary BMW, I asked for a license plate frame cause the old one was getting rusted out. I got to watch the fat fuck service guy run to get it. That in itself was kinda a treat! He was probably eating all the chocolates T&T Honda was giving out! Hahaha! I think he came back sweating maple syrup! Hahaha!

    Hey Rob, it was a red '91. Thomas K. bought it off me over the summer when it just rolled over 20,000 km. I hope he can find more time to drive it than I did!

    Yeah, I'll probably regret selling it someday. I wanted to stay with BMW and considered a new M5 but couldn't justify or afford $102k for a new one.

    Original, unmodded is the way to go if you're looking for an E30 M3!

    I bought a Honda Prelude 2001 in 2001 HONDA WEST = GOT A THANKS YOU LETTER
    I bought a Honda Accord 2002 in 2002 T&T HONDA = GOT NOTHING...
    I dunno bout the rest of you guys but this has to be said... T&T is by far the worst dealership I've ever experianced... I've had nothing but probs... First off when I bought my Accord I got a set of 17" wheels for it from there Part source section... The tread was bad and it kept pulling to the right... It took them a full day to get some Kumbo tires to replace the bad ones... I had nothing better to do cause they wouldnt give me another car so I went and watched 2 movies at the Visions accross the street... I watched 2 movies with a friend in one of their rooms... To top it off I had order SILVER interiors for the 17s and they shipped REDS on a black Accord... IT TOOK THEM almost 4 months to get me the silver interiours and then tried to talk me into keeping the red ones for $15 a piece x4....I had a spring problem where the front springs weren't sitting properly and it took them 1 month to get my car in... When I got there for my appointment they didnt have a car for me so I spent like 1 hour in their show room till they got me one... That really really pissed me off esp since I had to goto work... Now on my drivers side door I can hear something rumble when I shake the door... Something on the interior must have gotten lose and fallen... I dont even wanna call them anymore... But its under warrenty so I'll get it fixed by April... I WILL NEVER EVER BUY from T&T HONDA.... On the brighter side Honda West was excellent with everything on the Prelude... The only problem I had with Honda West was at the service desk... I'm the type of guy that likes to joke around and maybe score some free things... The Fat bitch at the counter didnt find any of my jokes funny when I told her... WITH A BIG SMILE ON MY FACE, "So you guys are washing it for me too right?" when I took it in for my oil changes... She was actually quite rude when she replied... Its $30 bucks or whatever to get it cleaned... I told her that I can do it myself for 4 bucks down the street at the coin wash... Shes like "then go there" and walks away... I found that rude... That brings me to another point... When you buy a new car Honda West gave me 5 FREE oil changes where as T&T gave me nothing... If my friend didnt work at T&T I woulda never gone there... Anyways... Thats my story... I do love my Accord though...
