It appears that the garage/dealer is unaware it's an LE


Thanks again, Photobucket.

The advert does mention "Unique build number plaque" so they might have an idea it's a special model? confused

It's true, but not sufficiently aware that stating it's an LE is bound to attract interest.....

Dealer: We close at 5 o'clock and I'd just like to make you aware the advert had a typo and that the price is actually £15,500.
Buyer Wait, but I...
Dealer: THIS CONVERSATION IS OVER!!!







Later that day over an awkward dinner:

Buyer's partner: What does Pininfarina mean?
