Quite true but, B.U. Bhandari was no ordinary dealer for Tata in Pune. They have been authorized dealers since 1999. Ratan Tata had personally inaugrated their showroom on Pashan road - Pune. They used to contribute a significant share for Tata sales and service. Being a dealer for 10 years and then moving on to a new company is eye raising.

Other dealership moves that I know of:

Jay-Vijay Motors - Fiat to Maruti Suzuki to VW
B.U. Bhandari - Honda to Mercedes
Prathamesh motors - Tata to none
Millenium - Mercedes to Tata
Millenium - Maruti to none
Ashwamegh - Fiat to Tata-Fiat to none

I am not sure why would anyone give up on an authorized Tata service center. They had tremendous activity in their workshop in Wakad. Wonder if VW will be able to keep their volumes at similar levels even after 5 years from now.
