"Hi Ithink they are afraid of either sharing too much info and the compettition may pick up on it and his boss gets pisses off or they are afraid of making a fool of themself because their experience is limited"

Lin, thank you for the welcome. Yep, things are very busy, but that's what makes it fun right?

Hope your sales are good. Honda is doing well and Acura had its best month in some time last month, but here we are again at month end. Hopefully things will continue to improve. Lyle.
