I see your point Warwick but for me it is not all about price I want what I want if it costs a bit more so be it,I tried to get the
Panasonic NN-CF873SBPQ combination micro here in the past and last week but gave up.
My current 15 year old Panasonic Dimension 4 that has been used 7 days a week for that time and has just started to make some odd sounds it is used to grill roast and micro allsorts the oven gets to 200 in 5 mins where as the Siltal that we we got 10 years ago has allways taken about 30mins so the cooker is going and just the combi and hob from now.
For me the last straw for being told what to have was 18 months ago when I ordered a new car after months of research into the last nut and bolt ordered car from VAG group this was a brand new model the colour for me was decided on Crete weather lots of orange dust so wanted honey gold colour, sales reps did not like that colour but my money my car deposit payed, one week later we have a problem sir that colour has been discontinued why dont you have this nice dark grey colour it is very popular in crete so went along with it but have since looked at brouchers honey gold still there you dont launch a new model then discontinue the colour a few weeks later only in Greece as they say.
I am at this time having the same problem with a new kitchen sink,why do you want that one sir,
think I will get some Nomad shares
