The Honda Jazz Tops The Lists
It's been massive for us at Bowater Honda. Infact it has been massive all across the globe. A brand new generation of Honda Jazz has arrived, with a youthful and stylish new shape, a wide range of options available from standard through to a super sporty Mugen version, a class leading new technology package, and a very affordable starting price of just $23,700. The whole world loves the new Honda Jazz, and here are some of the local awards for 2014 to prove it! Click here to learn more.
Hyundai Accent. Setting the small car benchmark.
If you drive a small car, or are thinking about downsizing to a lower fuel use, more efficient smaller car for around town use, then you need to see the Hyundai Accent. This zippy little hot hatch has it all! Small on size but massive on features across the model range. Click here to find out more.
Toyota 86: Funs' Back!
The all new Toyota 86 is a legend in the making. It is a return to the pure fun of driving. Rear wheel, front engined with a very low centre of gravity. It has been winning Car of the Year awards all over the world, including being named the Top Gear Car of 2012 when it was first released! Fun starts at just $42,586 (+orc). Click here to learn more.
The Movember moustache growing experiment has ended, with those of the BMG team that participated creating some great efforts. The moustache choice has been as varied as those that have tried to grow them. The Movember opportunity to change it all up for a month has certainly been embraced by some team members, and has got us thinking already about next year.
Hats off to all of these great efforts. The slideshow below shows the moustaches at their end point on the 30th of Movember.
Tom the showroom groomer from Bowater Toyota has got the handlebar sorted
Barry from Bowater Toyota Parts Department, good effort?
Aaron from the Bowater Toyota Sales team with Alloroc the Corolla Cat
Mike from the Bowater Toyota Service Bay - this is not a Movember special, but an everyday look. Next year do we get him to go naked faced for the month?
Craig from the Bowater Toyota Service Bay with a semi illegal goatee
Andrew from the Bowaters Grooming Bay with a solid effort.
Brian from the Bowaters Grooming bay with what has to be the winning stache in terms of volume
Matt Enright, Sales Manager from Bowater Honda with a very 70's looking number. Book him Danno!
The feedback has been very positive, so next year we think we will do it all a little differently, and take the whole thing to the next level. We have got a great event planned, so watch this space, and remember to check back in 10.5 months time. When you say it like that it doesn't seem that far away!
The next stage of course is the return to normal, or the "killing of the moustache" as some have coined it. This leads nicely into a funny video about said "moustache murder".....
Next year a lot more of the entire team (males that is.....) will be up for what we have planned as too many of the team got excited about getting into movemeber too late into the piece. An entire extra 12 months might also give Barry's facial hair the chance to develop and strengthen some more..... sorry Barry! We will be doing it properly, and giving the humble moustache pride of place amongst the Bowater Motor Group, and raising money for Men's Health at the same time!
