My husband and I have been looking at cars since we’re looking to lease in July. We know it’s a bit ahead of time since it’s only March but I really wanted to test drive my top options so I can really narrow down my list. We’ve visited Audi, LR, Lexus, Acura, and Volvo thus far. We never visited on a Saturday, always a weekday around 6-7 pm, and always gave them a heads up days before that we weren’t leasing until July and made an appointment. Yesterday, we visited BMW, and the salesman told us and I’m quoting here “if I was any other salesman I would’ve told you to screw yourself and hung up on you when you told me you weren’t leasing for another 4 months. But I’m doing you a favor.” He then proceeded to explain NOTHING about the X5, and told me the lease payments would be around 1000 a month with around 5k DAS.
Is it really rude of me to test drive this far in advance? Or was the salesman just a jerk? Just wanna know! Thanks
