Sales downturn ?
« on: October 08, 2008, 11:00:26 AM »
I wonder if the sales here will mean this model is discontinued, economic climate seems to indicate that.

21 % downturn in auto sales/ the green effect and watching the FTSE plunge this morning yet again 7% at one stage after 30minutes trading, sheesh  :(

I got sent a letter from my local dealer offering me £4K off a CX7. If thats in print, I'd expect a bit more in person at the showroom

Don't see many around here but there's a few rocking about my corner of Crete and I'm really quite taken with them. If I could run a DISI Turbo, it would have to be a toss up between the 3 and the 7 and I'm not sure who would win.

Make a few choice mods and go out X5/Cayenne/RR Sport baiting  :D
