Lack of 'vorsprung durch technik' if you're an Audi salesman

Seriously, they've got a reputation for being arrogant sods at that particular dealers.

You forgot "tight and / or stupid". Unbelievably stupid to let a car run out of fuel on a demo run, the worst own goal they could score and so easily avoided.

Totally agree Jason. They've also committed the cardinal sin of 'judging a book by its cover'. Just because this bloke was wearing jeans whatever, they didn't take him seriously. Bloke went to Mercedes next door in the end. Should have gone to BMW I would have thought.

Eventually get to the source of the problem and it turns out to be an Audi salesman, on a test drive with a potential customer? but the Audi A4 is not moving & potential customer is sitting at the wheel looking very miffed.

But then what's this? Woman in another Audi appears, with Audi Priory Park, proudly emblazoned down the side of the car, promptly takes a fuel can out of the boot and passes it to the by now cold, dejected looking Audi salesman.

I just had to stop & make it obvious I was laughing at him - he then scowled at me - cheek Obviously no sense of humour.
Audi's what a complete waste of money they are just Skoda's in a dress.
