I'll start with the good.
I got my new car tonight - I loved the service and my sales guy was great - he gave me what I would consider to be a phenomenal deal. I was so impressed with my sales guy I said no to a last minute offer for the same car (same features and options indentical save for color), but in black from another dealer for $450 less. I also left my sales guy a personal thank you note with a large cash tip inside.
I'm a sales guy myself but car sales is HARD, I would rank it up there with door to door sales in terms of difficulty. By comparison I work behind a comfy desk in a nice building and sell mortgages over the phone for one of the "big 4" banks.
So I got home tonight - set up my home link, bluetooth ect and then proceeded to de-badge the car of the dealer logo and license plate frame. Nothing against them, I just prefer a clean looking car. I live in Colorado which requires a front and rear plate but I haven't had a front plate on any of my cars in the last 10 years - never had a problem or even mentioned by a cop.
As I take off the front license plate I saw that as they prepped the car for my arrival (ie, this wasn't there yesterday) they DRILLED two screw holes into my bumpers. The bumpers even have a sticker that says "DO NOT DRILL" and there are two holes to installed from the factory for the plate.
So now I have these two freak'n holes on my front bumper which will either need to be fixed/replaced or I'll simply have to get a front license plate. It looks like the bumper is a single peice so my guess is deal with it or replace it.
I'm going to call them tomorrow of course and see what they'll do but now I'm rather pissed that I can't have my "clean" look because they just had to put their dealer license plate holder and paper logo tag there.
Has anyone else had this problem or experience?
