No driving Prof.

Just you look, you like, you smile and you buy!

Its just a sales expo, where they invite you, take to you about the new car, and then try and get you to upgrade to a new car...

They do provide drinks (alcoholic and Non alcoholic) and snacks.

Its kinda fun cause you get to meet some nice people there.

So yeah, let me know which on you got the invite to?

cheers,
Ronnie

Haven't heard a word about any launch parties down here in Tassie :iono:

Suppose as there are only two 135s coming to the state, they might not have the numbers to have a party.

I am still to see a 1er coupe in the flesh as I didn't make it to the Melbourne motor show. Looks like the first time I lay eyes on one will be when I pick up The One - mine:thumbup:

Sounds good guys, wish we had a 1addicts jackets or something to recongise each other, but I will be with Sean Evans (the greatest sales man of the year), and it want be hard to recongise me..

Not many Ronnie's around.

We should all catch up though?

Definetly catch up.

The first of many I think, it'll be great once we have all our cars.

I don't think there'll be too many Ryan's either

I would loved to come to Stillwill to put faces to all your names, but seeing as I did not buy my car from them it might be a tad awkward.

I think they might have slipped me an invitation by mistake because Sean was quite bummed that I could not go with them in the end!! In any case, I agree he is good bloke and so is the senior manager (with some Scandinavian pronounciation to his name that I forget).
