So, it is a week now since I became a proud Lotus owner, for the first time, and also, a first time and delighted Murray Motor Co customer.
For a long time I have hankered after an Aston Martin DB9 but a chance encounter with an Evora made me look further and deeper into this wonderful, unsung hero, of a car.
I ended up chatting to Brandon (whom I often call Brendon – I’ve worked with a few Brendon’s you see, it’s an age thing!) and we went out for a test drive in a MY2010 Ardent Red Evora NA, with sports pack and CR gearbox and Lotus Sports exhaust. No tech pack, no premium pack, just a a purists driving machine! 🙂 Wow, it was infectious, I was bitten, and had the Lotus Bug.
My wife thought I was out to buy some groceries, but after 30 minutes talking to Brandon, then going for a spin, I found myself signing some papers with a big mad grin on my face. I was hooked.
Brandon was an easy guy to get on with. Knowledgeable, professional, informative and calm. So unlike many car sales people I have met in the past. We did the deal and when I picked her up last Friday she was immaculate and ready to go. Communication throughout the process was spot on and everything went smoothly.
Brandon, and in particular MMC, were exceptionally good to deal with. No tricks, no cons, just a direct and honest approach to doing business. So refreshing.
The car – well, she is just simply beautiful and a real joy to drive.
I would highly recommend anyone, who is thinking about buying a Lotus, to pick up the phone / go and visit MMC and in particular to have a coffee, or a coke, with Brandon. You’ll find a refreshingly honest and straight forward approach and I very much doubt you will leave without a placing an order! Although, don’t let that last comment make you think they are pushy – they are the exact opposite and I get the feeling Brandon is happy to talk Lotus to anyone interested…
Thanks to Brandon and MMC for making my dream purchase a super experience, I will be back….
