Drive your dream with Bowater Honda

Kiwi legend Sharon O'Neill comes home with a dragon but can't do without her Jazz

Written by Media Manager.

Nelson has had a few musical claims to fame over the last couple of decades but they all pale in comparison to kiwi icon, and ex Nelsonian, music superstar Sharon O'Neill.

Today the team at Bowater Honda had the opportunity to share some time with Sharon and her partner Alan Mansfield (also a world class musician in his own right) as we helped them out, and got them into a Honda Jazz for the week they are back in town for Sharon's concert at the Rutherford Hotel this weekend. 

Sharon and Alan love the Honda Jazz they have back in Sydney. Like really love it. Sharon raves about the magic seats, the nimble nature of the car on the street's of a big city, and the ability to pack it full of music gear and zip around from place to place. These days both Sharon and Alan nearly always work together, and as they move two keyboards in cases, the stands and stools, they can just "break that sucker down" (her words) and fit it all in. It is even "Rock' n' Roll Black" (her words). They are both big fans of Honda's and have a long list of vehicles that Alan duely rattles off.

When we heard this little fact on the grapevine we got in touch with Sharon and offered her and Alan a Honda Jazz to zip around in. What else do you do when rockstar royalty such as this comes to town. Well there was a little more we could do as it turns out.

Bowater Honda's Nick is not above faking it according to one customer.

A thankyou card accidently came into the media department here at the Bowater Motor Group recently that was so sweet that we had to share it.

Bowater Honda's Sales Manager Nick D'Evereux eventually had the pleasure of receiving a lovely letter of thanks from recent customer Lynn and her husband once we had finished with it. 

The letter is artfully written and details a series of events that conspired to convince Lynn that the newly traded red Honda Jazz was indeed just right for her.

The Cancer Society Nelson gets all Jazzy on Daffodil Day

Sue Benseman, Linda Lucre (in car), Sophia Eagle and Sheryl Wearing (Bowater Honda) getting ready to set off with Daffodils in the Bowater Honda JAZZ AS daffodil yellow Honda Jazz this morning.


This morning Sheryl Wearing from Bowater Honda met up with Sue and Linda from Cancer Society Nelson on the Church Steps to lend them the daffodil yellow Honda Jazz demonstrator we have in our showroom to use for the day.

The Bowater Motor Group have a long history of supporting Cancer Society Nelson with our relationship being very strong over the past 2 years, including projects such as the BMG Mini for Nelson Cancer, the Relay for Life and sponsorship of the centre's primary vehicle. When the topic of Daffodil Day came up recently we asked what we could do to help. Hopefully the very noticable Daffodil Yellow 2014 Honda Jazz will draw attention to the volunteers as they travel the region collecting donations on this very important fund raising day for Cancer Society Nelson.

If you see Linda and her team out today in the Bowater Honda JAZZ AS Jazz make sure you donate! You can be given a bunch of daffodils for a $5 donation, or you can text 'daffodil' to 305 for an instant $3 donation!

Honda reigns supreme in sales for July

Written by Media Manager.

The new generation Honda Jazz is flying out the door at Bowater Honda.

We have had an amazing level of interest and sales of the new Honda Jazz since it's arrival in early July.

Infact Honda had the highest sales for July in the Private Passenger Vehicle and Micro Segment sectors overall in New Zealand. There is a reason for this, and it is all that Jazz!

The Honda Jazz has garnished an amazing response, with locals absolutely loving it. The team at Bowater Honda are very familiar with all of the features and benefits of this new model and are very happy to answer any questions and encourage you to take the Jazz for a test drive, and you will see for yourself that it is indeed Jazz As!
