I originally posted this is the "what's wrong with this picture" thread but not everyone reads that so here it is again: Here's a shot inside the showroom of MB Central Birmingham around 1.00pm today - look, no cars . Due to the unrest, every car inside and out of both the MB dealership and the SMART dealership have been moved elsewhere. The sales staff have nothing to sell. Here's a shot of the outside used car area, usually packed with cars. The cars left were awaiting customer collection from service/MOT etc. The "overnight" cars are being parked in the workshop, with the parts delivery vans being parked against the roller shutter doors as extra protection. According to the service manager that's 209 cars, loaded onto a fleet of transporters and shipped out - consider the size of the operation. Customers whose cars are in for service have been advised to collect them by 4.00pm. Interestingly, the VW dealership in the distance had taken no action.
