Just come back from my X type test drive.Now the dealer is a joint Jag/Aston franchise.
After I parked my Rover 75 (round the back) :eek: I strolled past the Astons and drooled over a Vanquish.A salesman came up and asked if he could help.(Must be a sign of maturity that I now look like I could be a potential Aston owner.) ;)
If I had the cheek I could have spun a line,about being in the market of having 150k to spend on a car,but instead came clean and said I was there to test drive a humble X type.
Full credit to the guy for stopping to chat and tell me about the cars,but I wonder how far I should have pushed for a test drive?
Anyone,like me without the means but had the brass balls /sheer audacity to go for it,anyway?
:rolleyes:

Alfa 33 16v back in '91.

The salesman just gave me the keys and said "bring it back when you're done". Temptation was to take my favourite totty to Scotland that day ... :D

Hardly a supercar but a 2.0 Audi A3 as a student after just getting out of a battered old Suzuki farmers jeep! :cheese: :cheese:

I'm pretty sure he was just humouring me, but hey, not bad for a pennyless stoodent! :)
