No soap today, pouring rain. Tomorrow too probably. Can't test the oomph in the wet.
Blew off the salesman who didn't call as promised. Told the replacement I was here to see the SLC43 they had on their web site for a week.
"What? You mean the GLC? [no after every guess]? The CLA? The CLS? The GLA? The GLE? The GLS? The STD?"
I repeated "SLC" over and over to no avail. I asked, "Are you up on these?" FINALLY he got it. The SLC43 was a mere 30 feet away the whole time, but just out of sight. Duh.
The SLC43 was a stripper, radio & heater & spare and that was it (only old timers will get that ref). Did have the awful Night Package which reminded me of a 1998 Eclipse base model with the black mirrors njunk. The grill was all Harley Earle 1958 Roadmaster.
No cornering lights (he asked someone) like my 350 as I correctly suspected in discussions here a while back, but net gain with the LSD headlights, I guess. But I liked those, they were a nice surprise (old eyes). Salesman had never heard of them, had to splain. Still no touch screen, alas. The Knob is my least favorite "feature" - so slow and tedious compared to my Lincoln MKT. Better off with a Texaco map, I told him. His defense was laughable.
Salesman says "It's got all these standard features," completely ignoring everything I said: only interested on one thing, how it goes. Typical overselling. I knew all that minutia.
When I was selling desktop computers decades ago, I got my sales pitch down to "What do you need?" (LISTEN) "OK, it does that. Sign here."
