    Both, I go with a family member who is interested in purchasing, and I let them know that I dabble in Car/Bike reviewing. I start taking a few pictures and they understand I mean business. After that Its pretty smooth.

    And now, we can even give the Car Dealer an honorable mention for allowing us to Test/Review the car. ( popularity points for the dealer! , more credibility to us, when we send them an email pointing out that their name has been highlighted! Geddit? )

    how do you expect to review it? I surely would like to review a car/bike...... always loved these reviews since childhood.......

    PS: what on earth is Ps??? (forgive my noobiness) ...I have always checked out bhp but this ps stuff is amusing....whatever happened to good ole Horsepower?

    PS TBH is a psychological way of saying your vehicle has higher power than what it does. a 120 bhp car becomes 130 PS. Though I'm not sure about why it's been made the standard.

    Yes, If you approach any dealership nicely, you will get a decent TD, and proper time to have a small review of the vehicle. Besides, just got back from the Renault Showroom,

    and the bottom line is, its a hit!

    Renault would not have had so much foot fall over the whole year, than they have had in the last 2 days. People are all over the vehicle, and are booking it left right and centre. Literally coming into the dealership with cheque books in hand.

    Ill explain further in another thread. ;) This is about developments all over.
