LOL that is so funny you should say that.
I found her a MINT condition Mini cooper last spring. 2004 with high miles, but perfect condition and absolutely no rust. Dark grey outside with black interior. It was beautiful, and had always been on her ‘dream car’ list.
So, the car has 250k km (155k miles) on it, but the paint is mint. One day I see her taking our daughter out of the back seat. While she lifts her out and carries her, she raises her foot up and lays the sole of her shoe on the outside of the door to push it shut. WHATTTT!!! Are you KIDDING ME?
Then, before selling it I gave it a full detail. I bought about $60 worth of products and microfiber cloths from Canadian Tire, and went to work on it. The Buyer came, and was so impressed with the way the car looked and drove, that I locked up an amazing deal on the spot.
She had it one last day before I had to take it to the garage to get cert/emissions for the buyer. I come out in the morning, after a rain, and find the sunroof and both windows open a few inches. Again, are YOU SERIOUS???
Anyway, I guess not everyone thinks of the car like we do. But, everyone seems to love a new car. Well, how long do they think it will keep looking like a new car if you treat it like an old farm pickup truck? LOL
I was showing her videos of Lambo and Audi V10 exhausts on youtube, getting her ready for what my S6 is going to sound like upon return. I’m like “doesnt that just sound incredible?” Her response “No. I dont like cars that make noise. They should be silent” Hhahahaaha.
Well, I told her in a few years she will get her wish, as we see more and more electric cars on the road. At that point, if she wants to hear it, she will have to enable a speaker
