Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, bringing you some humorous but important information about Audi.

Back in 200? Audi of America produced a television commercial which at the time gained plaudits from the industry, ad agencies and the population at large. There’s no doubt that Superbowl ads are arguably the most expensive to make and certainly amongst the most expensive to air during the game – upwards of 3 million dollars for a 30-second spot.

Just after the ad aired, critics came out of the woodwork – here’s a sample from GRIST

It’s ironic then that this Audi commercial titled The Green Police is coming back to bite Audi on the bum.  Legendary rock band Cheap Trick and Audi of America came together to rock the big game on Sunday, February 7th, 2010. The ad featured the Audi A3 TDi clean diesel.

Fast forward to 2014 and the ‘dieselgate’ scandal seems to have put Audi of America to the sword.

But it was light-hearted and humorous. It just didn’t tell the truth! Cheap Trick? I reckon that Audi of America think now that it wasn’t cheap – it was bloody expensive.

If you’re hunting around for a great price on your next new car, you should call the auto expert, Bob Aldons from Car Business. My company, a car Broker, Car Buyers Agent or Car Buyers Advocate based on the north side of Brisbane, will return your inquiry within 24 hours and make the process of buying a new car easy and stress-free.

Are you tired of salesperson tricks? I protect you from the pressure exerted by car dealer’s salespeople. There isn’t any obligation – just a pretty significant saving.

You’re where? Seriously, my services are available for you in any Australian state and territory: from Darwin to Hobart, Cairns to Perth.  Car Broker Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, and Darwin – I’m available when you need me to be.

 

Here’s an example

Matt wanted to purchase a Mazda 3 SP25 GT Manual Hatch. The retail value, drive away on that car is around $35,000. Car Business managed to purchase the same car for $28, 123.90 and with our fee Matt paid $25, 588, a saving of over $6000. And how do we know? Another customer, (looking for a new Holden HSV) just paid $35,000 for the same car – but he did it himself, without our assistance

If you’ve got a vehicle to trade, we have some clever ways to maximize the value – from used car dealers keen for your car to assist you to sell it privately. Finance and Insurance? We can handle that too, and we promise you will not be paying exorbitant dealer markups there either.

Trade In Value Example

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited. Average dealer trade value – $16500. We achieved $22,000

2014 Volkswagen Tiguan 118TSI. Average dealer trade value – $14000. We achieved $16000

So, to get the best new car price, talk to others and then talk to me. I’ve got the experience to handle the dealers and achieve the lowest new car prices. If you think you’re entitled to fleet pricing, I can often get better than that too.

Whether you’re a small fleet or a large national fleet, Car Business will go to work and get that price down. Lower new car prices are my goal. So you’ll get the best prices from us rather than hoping you can help yourself.

If I can’t get you the best new car price, better than you can get yourself from a car dealer, we won’t charge you any fee. No Saving, No Fee. – that’s what you should expect from a car buying expert.
