    They may as well, it's not as if Isnor Motors sell more then 50 cars per year anyways. I mean, how many 85 year old geezers with money and 30 year old SUV driving soccer moms live in the HRM? :rofl:

    I think we're about the only independant dealership left in town right now then. O'regan or Steele own EVERYTHING. I know we've been approached, but so far we've managed to stay unsold. But for the right price I'm sure we could be bought....

    Not such a bad thing.. while I don't want to see Steele and O'Reagan's own at all, having some people at Halifax BMW who actually WANT to try and sell somebody a car would be a nice change of pace...

    Oregan's came to our school (well...to the motor vehicle repair program) and offered to take our resumes and fill out applications so that we can do our apprenticeship there and crap like that. they told us what they own, they own everything except for....something, and they are gonna spread that all across the country.

    Nah I work at the BMW dealership, but after I posted that I thought, and there a re a couple of other independant places, Dexters comes to mind as does Hillcrest VW, and the honda dealerships.

    Shareholders own Newfoundland corp.

    Steele owns less then half of atlantic print.

    Steele will never get BMW, nor will orgeans due to strict franchise rules with regards to owning other makes ie Jag, merc.

    As for audi, dexter will not sell to steele, even though steele owns the building he is in.
