The 22 year old daughter of a friend of ours has just purchased a brand new convertible. She bought it from a HUGE dealership in the south....and since having it, her new car has leaked like a sieve. She complained to the dealership and they told her to bring it in to be tested in by their expert with some 'state of the art' equipment, to find out where the leaks are and to remedy the problem. She arrived at said garage, the guy with 'THE KNOWLEDGE' took her car off for 'specialist assesment'. The girl's father sneaked round the back to find a young lad (work experience sort of person!) directing a hosepipe on the roof at full pelt!!!!

The result is her car is now damp and the leaking roof still has not been rectified....ho hum!

Sooooooo, what make of car could I be talking about here????? A clue....its not an MG obviously!!!!!

MX-5 by anychance
Wouldn't surprise me at all!

When (the VERY sexy and lovable) Vicki Butler Henderson did a comparison test between the old and new MX-5's on Fifth Gear the hood on the new one ripped itself off as she was going round the track! :D

Z3 or Z4 BMW
Closest so far with the BMW connection.....its actually a new Mini convertible with state of the art windows that drop when you open the door and close after you shut it to get the 'perfect fit' and thus eliminate leaks!!! And the dealership was obviously a BMW garage....very well known in the south...especially for their state of the art water leakage testing equipment apparently....LMAO!!!!

Yes, yes I do.

The hood sticks out of the back like a fabric spoiler. Butt ugly!
