day 2524 – courtesy car

my car’s exhaust pipe has been really loud and rattly the last week. i had to make an appointment with autowest to get that looked at before the statutory holiday. luckily sonic is still under warranty so the loaner car and diagnostic check is covered. unfortunately, i have to pay for the overpriced gas fuel the dealership charges. i get to keep this x2 until after canada day

day 2365 – sunroof motor

i got a courtesy car from my autobody shop so they could fix both my hit and run, and the malfunctioning sunroof. the mechanic took my sunroof apart and found that my motor had snapped. i’m hoping they can source out a second hand motor so it would cost me over a grand. in the meantime, i’m driving a downgraded corolla around which feels way different than shadow

day 2080 – four series

brought my car into autowest to service today not expecting to come back with a big list of problems. it was suppose to be an annual oil plus a light bulb replacement, but the mechanics also reported that my washer fluid pump and oil filter gasket also needed to be replaced. i’m not replacing those with bmw because they charge way more than what the other mechanic shop had quoted me. at least i got to drive a brand new four series around for the day as a courtesy car

day 1828 – beemer recall

driving in an all new white 330i courtesy car to physio while shadow gets serviced. physio delivered the good news to me that my xrays came back negative. he diagnosed my injury as one that compressed and jammed up my whole ribcage. it all makes sense when he pointed out that my right is also limited in range. his nonstop jabs at my chest and ribcage were painful, and left me trying to catch my breath even after he let go of me. though i know it’ll get better after the pain and tenderness he caused subsides, i can’t help but that i’m in agonizing pain

day 790 – xi upgraded

my ride looks a little different today while my car is being serviced. minor upgrades from the usual with the newer model, bigger engine, navigation and digital dash. wouldn’t mind if they take longer to service my car cause one day of extra luxury just isn’t enough. it was a smooth ride with¬†cool features as expected, but i really dislike the fuel saving function of turning off engine at every stop

day 755 – hello there

have the monday blues and feeling ever so tired. came home to find this stranger in my garage, far from the dark grey car i call my neighbor. for a second, i thought my parents bought an additional car and then it struck me this is the courtesy car my dad will drive while it get the autobody shop gets its¬†bumper fixed from being rear ended. was expecting another s class mercedes. my dad tells me he’s not pleased with the new rav4
