Probably should have used the introduction thread for my first post but hey, couldn't avoid this one after reading it.

No new businesses, but would like to back up one stated above;

Just bought a new car from Trust Ford in Gillingham and have to agree with the customer service being excellent in all of it's departments, no issues whatsoever and any questions you have will be answered.

Thanks and good to know, I have yet to talk to anyone there who isn't great, although my experience so far has mostly been with the commercial vehicles people so can't comment too much on others just yet but I'm sure they will be just as helpful!

Yeah a 10 minute drive or so to the dealer, not far at all :)
