I can agree with this. My salesman was very knowledgeable about the car itself but not about cars in general... I had an aftermarket downpipe (for those of you uneducated in the turbocharger world, that's the turbo to midpipe/catback section of the exhaust.... would be the header if the turbo wasn't in the way xD) on the MS3 when I traded it in.. told my salesman that and he said he'd have a tech replace the stock downpipe if I had it, which I did, and he kept his word. When he called me to tell me it was done, it was "they took out the muffler for you, you can come pick it up!"

I lol'd, but he's such a nice guy, and knowledgeable about the features on the car, and made the negotiation process painless and convenient, so I'll forgive him for not knowing the technical side of cars, he knows how to sell them though.

Once upon a time I had:
