Apparently the only thing she could think of to say was that she would have been opposed to buying the swirled paint in front of us, so she remained silent.
As a testament to her training, she also get quite mad at our current dealership when they washed her car recently. In her defense, we have never told that dealership to wash the car because they never previously had the capability. I think she will have a nice sign for them next time. I got home and heard a constant whining (the car is water spotted,they didn't wipe the door jambs, they probably scratched it....).
I noticed that you have an Acura as well. I have several of them too and I did notice that Acura, like some other car manufacturers place some kind of protection on the hood, roof and trunk to keep them clean so they're ready to sell even though they will still detail them when you purchase one.
I had a horrible experience looking for a 300 C years ago. All of them were dirty and some even had quite a few miles on them. One sales manager told me they test them before the sell them. The car had 100 miles on it to boot. Needless to say, I left.
These sales people; not all of them, don't realize that customers are paying quite a few dollars for these cars and that they should be prepped better.
I have also seen some cars with scratches on them. No doubt trying to squeeze them into those tight spots.
