Nice job!
And you've got cool wheels on your car, Kelleners is my favorite design. Would be even better if you had the 20" ones.

Thank you!

Your 750 is a sweet car, would even better if it was a 760.

Wow for someone looking to find customers, you're very friendly.

I made a positive comment and was glad to see someone with a special wheel design.
Your sarcastic reply was uncalled for, buddy.
Good luck.

Thank you for the positive part of your comment.

I have plenty of clients and if someone chooses not to use my services due to my equal response I wont loose any sleep.
