Still here. Work, life and illness just got in the way of a follow up ! But thankyou for the kind support
As I said in my first post have been a "lurker" for a while. Certainly not an agitator as has been suggested.
Have now got my 2020 spec 40kw Tekna on order from a consolidator here in the UK, but it is now a month late due to factory closedown in Sunderland (in the UK).
So what happened.
Well refer to my OP , but I did take it further by reporting it to the MD of Nissan U.K. I had a splendid apologetic phone call some weeks later and a promise that the dealership principle would be reminded of the fact that they are ambassadors for the marque and not back street garages !
I haven't been back, and they didnt get my purchase of either a Qashqai for my wife or my new Leaf.
