Default I may be at a dealership but I can't deal with you.

So I ended up going back to slinging car parts at a Dodge/Jeep dealership.

95% I'm dealing with the inhouse mechs or shops.
Once in a while I get a retail call.

Me- Hi la-de-dodge parts how can I help you?
Him I need xxx part for a jeep.
Ok told him what he needed...
THEN....
You have XXXX part for XX yr Corvette?

NO we not a Chevy dealer. (one of the sister dealers are 2 towns over)

Oh well because of sister store I thought you would

*sigh* I wonder if he was a mouth breather.

Must be, since he was talking out of his ass.

But, say it with me kids, "You have a computer! You can look it up!"

or

"It's all the same!"

If it WAS all the same, there would be ONE phone number in the directory.

I try very hard not to be an idiot or an SC, but if I am being a mouth breather, 99% of the time it's because someone nearby has doused themselves with an entire bottle of cologne and I can barely breathe.

I have heard - anecdotally - that you can occasionally find dealerships that used to sell obscure or no longer existant brands of cars and still have a few parts leftover. Maybe because they still had a few customers from those days, or because the owner thought maybe they'd be worth money and held on to them, or whatever reason. Supposedly some caches of hard to find parts have been discovered at old privately owned dealers.

Of course, the odds of someone randomly stumbling upon this would be incredibly low, and would not happen when you're talking about recent models from current major brands. This is something that only someone with the right connections would know about.

In the OPs case, they were just dumbass SCs.

More of a coworker rant but I don't feel like a new thread
I love we have fleet contracts with a local foundry corporation. So we get a mix of cars and trucks.
Friday noon- 2017 Audi Q7 supercharged V6 SUV. For it's first oil change.
1st- yea must be nice to have this as a company car.
2nd- no we won't have the filter and no the chain autoparts store won't either.
I may be the new jack but I've been doing this for about 7 years and longer if you think about it.
So does bosses kid listen when I tell him we need to get moving for the 25mi jaunt to the only Audi dealer in 60mi? Or take your time and wing it on a aftermarket?
ding go with B that of course does not fit.
Now the car was promised at 2 it's 230 and now we are running for it.
Then the service writer wants to argue with my that in Friday afternoon traffic it's going to take about 2 hrs to get this part now. Yea I've been driving for parts for the last 7 years here yea 2hr IF all goes well!
took 1 45. told you

Oh wow. Leave the geography out of it .... am I right in thinking that it's ALWAYS seriously bad idea to "wing it on an aftermarket" on an almost-new, $50,000 vehicle?

For a client who, from the sounds of it, gives your dealership a fairly significant volume of businesses?

I mean, a filter is such a relatively cheap item and putting the wrong thing in there can do so much freaking damage. If I were that customer I'd expect a genuine Audi filter.
