    The stealer I used just sent me a email regarding this and saying they will continue to offer service work and also adding 2 Chinese car brands (Great Wall and Haval) to their dealership...

    Not exactly filling me with confidence there.

    With the way the car industry is going, you'd have to think that days of having huge yards with large amounts of stock (ie overheads) on hand are drawing to a close. People are moving more and more towards convenience and online buying, and you can get a very good idea of what a car is all about by looking at it on a computer screen.

    I can foresee each major brand having centralised depots of sorts around the country where an interested person can find a car they like online, have it brought to them or perhaps go there themselves with a fixed price tag if you decide to buy (trade in depending of course) The whole haggling over the price is so antiquated as well.

    The sheer cost of the current way of doing things must be huge, and from I understand that's why a lot of car shows have significantly downscaled or disappeared entirely, they simply became too expensive and really quite irrelevant.

    To be fair, in larger areas where all of the other mainstream brands have a presence, they really will have to take what they can get or shut down.

    Gross profit by itself has no meaning.
