    Typically they won't turn you down if you arrive in a car worth equal to, or more than what you are trying to test drive. I think that's ridiculous, but it is what it is I suppose.

    a credit check is not unreasonable a request to be considered for a test drive. a lot of dealerships dealing in higher end vehicles will request the same....no matter where you go. unless you know someone at a dealership, this is a pretty standard practice.

    My current car was 50 something. RR Sport SE is 60 something. I think it's close enough

    Wait, so they did or didn't ask to check your credit? I initially thought the guy just said no and didn't even make an effort to earn your business and check your credit, etc. And I was going to say don't give them your business that's for damn sure. But after reading your next post, It sounds like they did ask but you told them no.

    I'm sorry but any dealership worth a sh*t should be able to use reasonable judgement to allow test drives. Only time I had to give anything other than my drivers license to take a spin was at the Ferrari dealer. I'd say go elsewhere

    My thoughts exactly.

    Another weird thing he said...

    He asked where I lived because if I lived closer to another RR dealer, they would not take my business because they only sell to locals.

    I think he just didn't want to sell to ME for whatever reason. Fine with me.
