Some of the crowd that attended our launch for the new Honda Jazz.
On Thursday 24th of July we officially launched the brand new generation Honda Jazz with a bit of an evening at our new showroom in Achilles Ave.
A strong turnout from interested exisiting and new customers was meet with much excitement from the team at Bowater Honda - you never quite know just how many people will show up to something like a new car launch in these days of information overload via the internet.
We were all pleasantly surprised by just how much excitement there is locally for the new generation Honda Jazz. The showroom quickly filled up with those all keen to know more, and what a treat we had in store for them!

We are very excited about the new generation Honda Jazz we now have down at Bowater Honda. So excited we want to make a song and dance about it!
The new Honda Jazz is quite simply JAZZ AS!
It is also nimble, quick and quite the stunner.
When we first learnt about this nippy little urban get-around coming to our new dealership earlier in the year we came up with the concept to run a Jazzercise class whilst offering demo drives on a Saturday the weekend after we "officially" launched this great new model.
Easy they said.
So now we are here. The official launch for the Honda Jazz is Thursday 24th July. That in itself is going to be an awesome event.
We have organised the knowledgeable folks out at the ASB Aquatic and Fitness Centre to come along and run a class for us, right in the showroom.
It is going to be heaps of fun, so pull out your old lycra, drink half a dozen energy drinks, and come down for a great morning on Saturday 26th July at Bowater Honda's new showroom at 82 Achilles Ave.
The Light Nelson event is always a fantastic family entertainment must do for everyone during the annual Nelson Winter Music Festival. It is without question a stunning collaborative effort - and this year you have even more reason to go along.
Bowater Honda have joined forces with #GigatownNelson and come up with a great competition that will not only be a little bit fun, but also helps with the #GigatownNsn project to win ultrafast Broadband for the Top of the South.
All you have to do is take a selfie (a picture on your smartphone of you at the Light Nelson event) and upload it to the Gigatown Nelson facebook page. Gigatown Nelson will promote all of the photos uploaded and the top three most voted on photos will all receive prizes from Bowater Honda.

Taking a selfie is easy. Just take a look at one we prepared earlier!

Free Parking Extended until 19th October!
Bowater Honda Sales Manager Nick D'Evereux with Chris Bowater and Cathy Madigan from Uniquely Nelson.
Bowater Honda is proud to be helping to bring free parking to central Nelson this winter.
We have been a long term partner to Uniquely Nelson over the past 3 years this campaign has run. This year it has got a bit of a shakeup. A 12 week trial of Free Parking every day in Nelson’s central business district is underway and if the number of cars in the CBD over the past few days is any indication, it's a big success already!
We recently handed over the keys to a new Honda City to be used to promote this wonderful initiative around the streets of Nelson this winter.
The trial period was initially set to run from 1 July until 30 September 2014, but due to the success it has been extended until the end of the school holidays on 19th October. Here are some other things you may need to know.
