I need to convince my business partners before 5pm GMT on Tuesday that it's wise to get a Ford Mustang as a company vehicle. Anybody got any ideas on how I can convince them as I have none. biggrin.gif I'd be driving it so want a decent car lol. Not a bloody Vauxhall Astra as they are suggesting.

We do PAT Testing Services and Electrical Repairs. We don't need to carry lots of stuff around. Just tool kit and plugs, fuses etc.

Then there is nothing else to plead on but speedy arrival when needed and the good look of the car that will make people relate it to the company...

I own 25% of the company lol. I need to convince at least 2 of the 3 other owners. I tried that tactic already but 2 of the other owners are married so it didn't work as well as it could of sad.gif.

I guess a nicer car will make the company look better and people will want to go with you guys instead of competition,

Hell yeah... they should definitely agree to a 'Stang ! You thinking of a modern one, 2005 onwards ? Just say to them 'I can't do my job properly unless I have a supercharged V8 !'

So American cops get the Carbon Motors E7, the Italian polizia get a Lambo Gallardo and the British rozzers get...

The new Vauxhall Astra. Oh awesome, don't they look stylish! Her Majesty's Law Enforcement Community has a longstanding relationship with the dependable Vauxhall, so they ignored the 2/5 Reliblility, 3/5 Craftmanship, 2/5 Driving Experience.

I hate Top Gear (another tv waste of space, but slightly better than all the other rubbish) so don't watch it much, but if you want to rip cars apart or blow them up that would be the place to get you B.S. car reviews from smile.gif
