    When my dealer replaced the head gasket the car kept stalling. They said the car was torn down so far it forgot how to be an RS. The cure was for them to drive it. The're a very old, honest, family owned dealership, but that sounds like a crock of dung! I drove it and she came around.

    Absolutely unacceptable. I wonder how they'd like it if their doctor took their wife/girlfriend to teach a virgin friend how to do, you know, human reproduction things.

    I'm always very anxious when my car's in someone else's hands especially when that someone likely doesn't give a flying f*ck about your car. I'm a german at heart when it comes to engineering so I'm motivated to learn to do everything myself.

    At this point it appears the video has been taken down, likely because they've worked out a deal. Hopefully these f*ckers got their asses canned at least.

    Maybe the RS owner should take one of their cars for a spin and flog it.

    Saw this too. Insane stuff but really common I feel like.

    Does anyone know of any easy quick install dash cams you could install when taking the car in for service and then uninstall quickly too? Don’t really want a permanent one but this makes me want something

    Years back, my brother had a modern Pontiac GTO that was at an independent collision center, getting some paint work done. When he picked up the car upon completion of work, the owner of the shop told my bro that his car had been out on a joy ride. Apparently after detailing the car, the shop owner's son took it out for 'half an hour', doing who knows what. Shop owner noticed the car had been driven by the next day, as the car wasn't as clean as it was the night before. Shop owner offered a steep discount on the work, and a signed statement to fix any damages my brother might incur due to the joy ride.

    My brother took the deal and never had any issues with the car. Car had been driven about 15 miles, based on odometer reading. It is terrible that the car was taken on a joy ride, but the owner brought attention to the issue. My brother would never have known, unless he would have seen the act.

    My brother claimed, there isn't much they could do to that car that he personally wouldn't do on a whim, lol!

    With all the idiots on the road, a dashcam is almost required now. It's nice to have video proof that the asshole that hit you was texting and not paying any attention to the road, because you know they are going to deny it and try and blame you. Not once have I regretted installing a dashcam, and that will be one of the first 'mods' on any future car.

    This is my mantra. Sure I don’t grind my gears or slip my clutch, but there’s no way some tech can drive my car as hard as I do

    exactly, especially sh*tboxes seem to be the most dangerous for some reason. they sure don't care about their car why should they care about someone else's. I've come to accept the fact that average drivers are idiots and they're the majority. they point fingers at more capable cars going 140km/h in a straight line on an empty highway saying it's dangerous while they're texting, or eating a burger, while driving.
