Got a letter from the dealer where I bought my car originally which read......
Your Personal Invitation to our Exclusive Closed Sale Discount Event.
[Dealer name] are pleased to inform you that we have joined forces with the 'Man from Ford' to bring you some fantastic offers acrosss the Ford range. Ford has allocated our dealership a 'golden pot allowance', which will enable us to offer exclusive discounts that will not be available to the general public.
We are sending this letter to our most loyal customers, to invite you to this exclusive event being held [dates].
We hope that you will be able to attend, and take a look at the new 62 reg Ford range. We are offering 5 years free warranty on all new Ford cars purchased up to 30th Sept 2012, desposit allowances available on selected new models, with representative 4.9% APR when financed with Ford options - plus special discounts from Ford's pot of gold.
In addition, we are also offering huge savings on our wide selection of used car stock. Following the 1st Sept plate change, we have had an influx of well-maintained part exchange vehicles, which we are delighted to offer at specially reduced prices just for our 4-day event.
I thought yeah okay I'll call in when I'm passing just to see what they're offering, but they just phoned tonight asking which "appointment" I'd like as they're almost fully booked!
So I've made one just to window shop if anything.
They said I need to bring my car, V5 and both parts of the licence.
Just a standard sales ploy by dealers you reckon?
(Just for reference my 2011 60 reg fiesta is nearing 2 yrs old and has 19,000 miles on it - 1 year of warrenty left)
