You can love the car, but still be distant from the company. Your loyalty is to your car not the manufacturer or dealer. I've met some dealers who were good and some who I wouldn't pee on if they were on fire.

It's always good to hold dealers' and manufacturers' balls to the fire. They are not on our side.

I would agree with that for faceless mass-production white-good type manufacturers, but for more specialist stuff your enjoyment of the car can be significantly improved if you have a dealer who you trust.

My 570s has been a joy to own, I've never had any concerns with my dealer and as a result I'm now a huge McLaren fan. It was the same when I had TVRs, my enjoyment of the cars was again greatly enhanced because I had a local specialist who I trusted 100%
