Niche marketing.
Everyone knows that everyone needs to fall into some sub category so that they can be labeled and identified accordingly.

Should that be "monitored"?

However, we're so happy with our dealer we kept the vinyl spare tire cover they put on it with their name/info. in place until today. Took it off and now it's just the brown plastic (?) tire cover.

You can turn it off, if you know how, lol. Or, just delete the tag line. I'm too lazy to do that. It's just advertising, that's all.

I do the same. Left it on a new 67 Chevelle as the dealer gave free oil changes and lube as long as you owned the car if you left his chrome emblem on. Bob Eriksen Chevrolet Milan, IL. You could furnish your own oil and filter, labor & lube free.

My question is Who cares and what difference does it make?
It is a built in signature that the iPad/iPhone/Android app inserts - it is stupid and I wish that the app would just use the sig you have stored on the FRF.

I love my iPad but hate the FRF App

aHAH! Sneak apparently has better negotiating skills than you do! He made 'em remove their badge from Biff and he still gets free oil changes with a free wash every time for the life of ownership of the truck.



Dude drives a hard bargain, for sure.



When he starts the negotiating I get up and give 'im plenty of elbow room. "Guys I'll be back when it's time for me to sign something...if that time comes." And yep, there have been times we didn't get to the signing time.
