Pulled into my local Shell garage and filled up. Went to pay and a 2014 Porsche Boxster pulled up beside me. While queuing to pay a 2015 black SLK 172 slipped into the next set of pumps.

Looked at the three cars side by side (and a BMW e39 5-series also in the filling station) it struck me that the least attractive car of all four was the Porsche.

As to the 'spotted' SLK - the driver was more intent on filling up than he was on being complimented on his fine set of wheels - wouldn't look at me at all! Ah well. Still a pretty car though.

That is when you need the Sarge Book of etiquette

March up to them with big smile on your face
Give em the card

If they want to talk, fine
If not, the hell with them
We don't need unfriendly people on my, er I mean, our site! :D
That's pretty much what I tried - but he didn't want to make eye contact. Maybe the car wasn't his???

Anyway - if he's that unfriendly then life's too short - move on and find others who appreciate their cars.

What part of Surrey are you in? I'm in a black R172 and often at Shell stations, but a 12 plate.

Reigate/Redhill area.

The garage I was in was at Earlswood.
