    I hear that I get free maintenance, never had to repair something for just wearing out. 206k on my jetta, only problems were caused by me. I am happy to have a job. I never would have thought they would hire an 18 year old high school student to sell cars.

    I do realize that the auto industry is taking a beating right now. My good friend lost his job at BMW, but got a job working for Nissan this week. Seems like places may have laid off to many people and are now looking to get a few back. I figured I was hired because kids will work for less.

    well, since you are going for it, a couple of pieces of advice:
    1: sell to your client, not you. If the client is a 45y/o couple buying a car for their 16 y/o daughter, stress the safety and reliability *bull***** to the parents. Note the comfort and MP3 player to the daughter.
    2: 60 y/o couple - the comfort and sophistication of an audi at a more reasonable/practicle price. Safety, leisure, with eough get-up and go if you need it.
    3: enthusiast - let him make you feel stupid, then leave without buying the car. We al know enthusiasts buy used.

    Didn't one of the largest private investors in VW step in front of a train yesterday? Did you have anything to do with his decision?

    He was short VW and lost billions, look at a VW chart from the last 6-months. Porsche owns ~70%, the Bavarian trust owns 20%, remainder is float.

    A schooner is a beer mug, Texas boy!

    It's going to be really amusing if psp makes out like a bandit.

    I wouldn't expect you to know a line from a movie in this decade, so I cut you some slack, but it's a line from "Mallrats". It's one of those motion pictures where they use a camera and film stuff, unlike the flip cards you are used to, old man. :D
