    If you don't ask, you don't get :)

    Popped in to my local dealer of choice to buy an air filter, oil filter, sump washer and a litre of brake fluid.

    All the Fiat's had umbrella's on the top and I 'joked' if you had to buy a car to get one. Chap behind the desk (Service Manager) laughed and said yes, but when he went in to the store to get the parts, he came out with (albeit a Land Rover) new golf umbrella and the bits, can't argue, I can get my carbon fibre umbrella back off my wife now

    Nice chap also sold me the brake fluid for £1.85 which I'm lead to believe is the price for 250ml usually? He said it wasn't on stock hence the price? All-in-all £12

    Yeah, nice chap, they don't even sell Vauxhall now but I'd go there over 'the other Vauxhall dealer in Carlisle' any day!

    They never did sell Vauxhalls (only ever done spares and service) , GM wouldn't let VX cars, because there was already another dealer in Carlisle, but they were allowed to sell Saabs instead.
