    Now that true coat ............... that's applied at the factory.:bwah::bwah::bwah:
    I used to prep new cars back in the early 80's.
    The 15.00 we charged them for paint sealant ( wax ) was a 150.00 add on when they got around to charging for it.

    I refuse to take a car with add on crap on it.

    I found one I liked about 3 years ago that they had some chrome plated stock rims on that they wanted $1400 for. They finally took them off and put on a set of stock rims and I bought it. I still can't believe they chrome plated a set of Hyundai rims and expected to get more money out of them.

    I also refuse to take a car with a dealership sticker on the back of the car.

    At least the recent car purchase went smoothly. I normally hate buying a car.

    You Jersey guys know Rt. 46 Lodi, years ago I knew a guy who legally changed his name to Honest Sam the used car man. on his license. Now he would'nt do stuff like that. Maybe sell you a stolen car, but you would get a good price.

    The last time I bought a new truck, I ran into a "reverse variation" (?) of this, kind of.

    The truck had a "mini-donut" spare tire. I wanted a full-sized spare.

    "Well, the 4x4 comes with a full-sized spare..., but the 2-wheel drive only comes with the donut."

    "I don't want a 4x4. I want a 2-wheel drive. I just want a full-sized spare. I am willing to pay for the extra to get a full-sized spare."

    "No can do."

    "Well guess what, bud. I no can buy here. I'll go to another dealer and buy a different brand"

    (There were several different models I was interested in. I bought elsewhere.)

    Whatever happened to "the customer is always right"? At least as far as options go?

    The used auto dealers on Rt. 46 in Lodi and in Teterboro (3 miles down the road) are all businesses built upon honesty and square dealings with prospective automobile buyers. They are all truly
    "MEN OF HONOR" and never lie!

    yeah, when I bought my car it had actually just got put on the lot 2 days before I had looked at it so they hadn't yet put a dealership sticker on it... worked out in my favour.
