    Default Oh dear, Toyota dealer looking a bit of a plonker!

    I was at my local Asda on Sunday for the weekly food shop and parked outside the entrance to the store were two Toyota cars, placed there by the local dealer for the public to see/admire/enquire about. I stopped in my tracks as when I first glanced I couldn't quite believe what I was seeing.

    As you can see, each one had vinyl graphics on both sides and bonnet promoting the finance options for that model. Unfortunately the sign-writer obviously didn't proof-read what they were doing nor did anyone at the dealership! So a collective effort by all involved to make them look like plonkers!

    Excuse the quality of pics as they were taken on my phone, all that I had to hand at the time.

    Amazing - how on earth did no-one spot the mistake? Clearly £199 is too much for a toymotor

    Or have standards dropped that much?

    Gawd knows! I couldn't believe it when I saw it! The sign-writer would've had to make the mistake when doing it on their system, and then not notice it when applying six of them in total to the two cars! lol - plus the sales people at the dealers too!

    Is it not 2 different cars? £199 for the red one per month and £170 for the black? The black does look a smaller and different model...

    So 2 different prices for 2 different cars?

    I'm sorely tempted to drop off a printout of the pics to the sales people at the dealers as it's a local dealer.

    You've missed the mistake m8 - it says 'desposit' on each of the signs when it should be 'deposit'
