The computerized sale thing should be unrelated. I can take a look at it if you email me at cliff AT positech dot co dot uk, (Preferable with a link to this thread to remind me) the savegame.
You can find savegames at:
\my documents\my games\productionline\savegames

We did change the way customers buy cars, they now have a budget at a set value rather than just a band. Are all of your compact cars really low-spec in terms of features (or maybe really high)?

They seem to be selling now I added an upgrade to my newest stock and there moving out again now.

Weird they just seemed to hang around for ages then all of a sudden they sold,

Corker of a game by way just what I've been after, already lost 35 hours of real life since Saturday morning lol

I have set up a custom map with very high resources so i could play around.

Now i have more than 700 cars in my showroom. This shows several problems:

- i can not scroll the list of cars in my showroom. It looks like i can drag the slider, but then the list gets updated and it jumps back. After that i can not drag the slider anymore.

- Also i think the presentation of each individual car is not a good idea. Why not collate all similar cars into just one presentation with a litte number overhead. So it would be easier to update, as the cars are constantly going in and out. My be you should pause the production while in this menu.

- I have more then 400 cars of this Compact car (Budget Version) in my Showroom. It seems they are not selling at all! I have 0 customer view Count on this car. And the progam tells me to even produce more.

- i can not see the other cars in my Showroom, as the list is not scrollable. There should be a Summary of what car type are in the showroom and how good the get selled.

- On the market tab, it tells me that i have 22 customers/hour for this Compact Budget-Car, but 0 sales. On the other hand, i can sell 10 cars of the Sports/Budget, whilst there are ony 5 customers/hour showing up? In my opinion Sales/Hour could not exceed Customers/Hour.
If the cars are not selling, we should know why. It should be possible to get rid of such cars by making a Special offer sales price with a high Discount and a higher Chance for customers to buy.

- on the market tab you could add a line "Cars in Showroom" if you move the percentage of marketshare in the same column as the other numbers.
