17.....Best dealer They all have their off days but I like Cambridge Lambretta and Vietnamese dealers who can at times sell you rubbish but at least give you the impression you are a valued customer.

18.....Worst dealer experience Being lied to at a certain London garage whose 'perfect P200' that came off a perfectly good running scooter actually had a piston and cush drive that were wreaked beyond belief. I then amazingly came across the guy who had owned the whole scooter who hadn't been paid for it yet and who had been honest with the dealer in saying it didn't work!
