    I don't blame you for giving up to be honest.

    The really good thing is that you don't keep going on and on about it though... ;)

    Donald in my experience very few dealers actually give a flip about selling anything. They're not being racist, they're just crap.

    I'm still waiting to hear back from the Renault dealer regarding my Zoe test drive, 3 weeks not long enough for a call back

    I've bought maybe 30 odd new cars in my life and I really don't remember any brilliant sales experiences except for the v6 4motion I bought from a German dealer.

    PM is generated when the engine is at its hottest, the shortness of the NEDC test often means it never gets to the point where the engine is producing anything. The behaviour is universal to GDI type engines.

    The NEDC test isn't fit for purpose now, you only have to look at the way some manufacturers have exploited it to be able to claim ridiculous MPG and emissions to realise that.
