Monday September 22nd we set out to Seattle for the Regional Semi Finals for the Audi Certified Pre- owned walk around competition. It was a beautiful morning for the 3 hour drive ahead of us from Portland and Sunset Imports had provided the perfect car for the journey.
The sport package equipped Audi A4 Avant was sure footed at highway speeds and felt very connected to the road as we made our way into the heart of Seattle.
After arriving downtown we took some time at pikes street market for a nice walk to stretch our legs and take in some of the sites…
We then enjoyed a cup of coffee at the original Starbucks as I began my mental preparation for the Audi Certified Pre-owned Competition.
As the day came to a close we enjoyed a wonderful meal at our favorite Italian restuarant, Mitchellis. Always delicous food and great service, we find ourselves here for dinner everytime we come to Seattle.
Enjoying the last few minutes of daylight at the Pier…
The C.P.O. Semi Finals Walk Around consisted of 3 contestants, each contestant representing the Pre-owned vehicle to a potential client with 3 judges looking on.
The setting was very professional and each of us was very well versed in the Audi brand with a true passion for our product.
I was third to present the vehicle and with butterfly’s in my stomach I began, “Welcome to Sunset Audi”. Before I knew it 15 minutes had passed and I was concluding the demonstration with a hand shake. Though I would not be continuing onto the Las Vegas finals , I left with confidence and knew our certified warranty process was second to none. It was truley an honor to be a part of this exceptional training experience.
