All I received from my dealer (Brayley Honda in Enfield) was a text that arrived on my phone at 4.40pm inviting me to an exclusive preview at 5pm the same day. 20 minutes notice to drop everything and drive 12 miles across London in the rush hour seems about as stupid as any dealer can get.

Thanks Dan but as all I now want is a test drive and a delivery in March I'll wait until the petrol EX-GT automatics are in the showrooms. If I lived in that other country south of the river I'd be in to see you. From Herts I need minimum of 3 hours to reach Croydon!

Last time I drove from Peterborough to N London it took almost 3 hours.
The jams on the A1/A1M at 7.30am were solid. However nothing as solid as the jams between Central London and Croydon. This can be done in an hour at 2am but most dealers are probably still in their beds at that time.

I regulary drive from Mitchem (Surrey) to Barnet leaving 5pm arriving 8pm on a Sunday evening. Sometimes I go through central London other times I try the N Circular via Kensington and A40. Not much difference. My average petrol consumption these days is 24mpg. On the cross London trip it drops to 22mpg.

Maybe you could persuade them to do a "midnight launch", Party it up a bit.. eg: some party snags etc and advertise it. It works for electronic/software gizmos.

My brother did that when he was Sales Manager at Marshalls Huntingdon.

It went down a blast. (He's now a top dog at some car sales place in America)
