    Man I can't wait...

    You might have to change your signature again Chris, because your TPW date got moved up to 11/3. If it sticks, that means your car will get here mid-November instead of December.

    I'm not saying who, because they might get into some kind of trouble, but a local dealership has already offered me the chance to swap my STS-V for a day to drive an 09 CTS-V and see what I think of it. Now this will certainly be after all initial orders a filled and they have a car to do it with, but still a fair gesture.

    I didn't have any problems..

    My local dealer, that closed after Katrina. Let me drive three different V's (2 blacks, 1 silver) before I picked one. I would hope that the remaining local Caddy dealer would do the same. Good Luck...

    Not to be mean my friend, but actions have consequences. Yes, it's a free country and you're entitled to wear what you feel is comfortable. However, society does have expectations that aren't going to change just to make you happy. If you want to test drive a $60k car, or eat at a fine dining restaurant, or attend the opera, don't expect to be able to waltz in with your grunge look and get the same level of attention and respect as someone who took the time and effort to dress appropriately for the occasion. Is it fair, no. Is it always the correct indicator of which person is the best customer, no. It is the reality, and not likely to change just because Gen X and Y like to be lazy and comfortable (and I'm in that catgeory so I can throw stones).

    Re: Will Dealers Allow Test Drives?

    I bought my V at Ed Morse Sawgrass, they let me and my biz partner test drive it-he was heavier on the pedal than me. I bought mine there, just not that one.
    If I could not test drive a car, I would not consider buying it. I saw a show on SpeedTV where Mekhi Phifer, he was a doc on ER (died a few weeks back) got to test drive a Ferrari 599 GTB for about an hour (he bought the car), not sure if they would let me do so,,,

    BTW, Tony, I spoke to Chris today, he will be out of town when his car is delivered, so he asked me to pick it up, much grasses senor!

    Yes, it's all about respect; if you want some, show some. True, they don't know you, but that's the point. Dressing decently while visiting a finer establishment--especially for the first time, shows that you respect the place and the people that work there and they would do well to treat you in kind.

    That was a good one Darren. But again if you want to get in my 09 I am going to have to be there.
    It will be watched...
