    Thread: Dealerships Who Hang Out on VWvortex, Click Here

    1. 05-27-2011 11:00 AM #1
      We’re setting up a new program for dealerships to market on VWvortex (and Fourtitude and Swedespeed if you’re interested) that is tailored to a dealer’s needs. We’re looking for a few dealerships to try out the new program and figure there’s nowhere better to start than with dealers who are regulars in here.

      Bernardo Bigalli, who’s been on the dealer side at Roseville Volkswagen in California, will be heading up management of the program so I’d like to introduce him here username: Bernardo@VortexMediaGroup.

      If you’re a dealer who knows and understands the enthusiast community that hangs out on VWvortex, we think we’ve got an offer for you that you won’t want to miss. Bernardo will check in below so please make contact with him if you’re interested.

      Looking forward do answering any questions regarding our new dealer program. I would really appreciate any feedback to make this productive for both our readers as well as the dealers. Even if you're not with a dealership, but your dealership is cool and gets enthusiasts, drop me a note and tell me about them. I want to make sure we're getting to enthusiast-friendly dealers first.

      What kind of car? Year? If it's a laser cut, we just order you a new one by VIN, but most years need to be programmed to the immobilizer as well.

      Most don't mind. BUT, you need to go in and talk to a manager and also have an idea how many might be showing.
