Thumbs Up Simple, small jobs that get left for ages...

I bought my 147 from a Volkswagen garage after previous owner had traded it in to them. When they took it in they plastered it with their dealer stickers on boot window, tax disk holder and new number plates all with VW logos all over them. First thing I did when I got the car home was remove the stickers and change the tax disk holder to get rid of another marques logo from my prized new Alfa.

But didn't have new number plates to put on so for the last 11 months I've been driving round with VW badges still on the car.

Anyway this morning I have finally got round to switching them for a set of plain plates with no logos on so am free of the VW badges

Why does it always take so long to do such simple little jobs!

It really annoys me when they put all that free advertising on your car... I always ask them to remove it before I collect the car. If they complain I suggest they knock off some money for me advertising their garage... that usually makes them more keen.

Perhaps they were trying to make the new beetle cooler by association

Iv'e kept my tax holder and number plate on, I don't normally like those advertisements on either but mine are Monza sport and the tax holder has a Italian flag and looks ok.
