I was after a cash purchase as had a budget set aside and not interested in finance and the salesperson was just fine with that. Took car for test drive same day, did not expect that so was very nice. i could go on for a long time about the service i received but i think you get the sort of idea. 5 stars from me all across the board. I have never recommended any business to friends or family before but i can recommend this company no problems. p.s. The megane is awesome by the way.
