  • I had some exhaust joints welded on the truck. Idle seems off now but it probably always was. Just now noticing it due to the exhaust being fixed.

          Honestly, I got lucky. The 2016s are just starting to appear on used lots. I happened to find exactly the color, trim, and options that I wanted on a car with 7800 miles that was sitting at a BMW dealership.

            Was it a car rental or something? Or a lease? Even if one year leases are odd as fuck.

              It is a 2016 but it was bought in October 2015 -- so it is exactly 24 months old. Only has 7800miles, so pretty obvious it was a second car.

              Salesguy said that the owner traded it in for an M2 because he was expecting his first kid. Sounds like a nice story, but who knows how true it is.

                Hey, I'll take it. The story I got on my vehicle was that the previous owner wanted a hybrid SUV. So she didn't like the gas bill? As in she never stomped on this fucker in Track Mode which makes it a virgin? I want to believe!

                  LOL -- exactly.

                  My older Miata, I was told, was owned by a grandma who traded it in because she had trouble seeing out of it.

                  So she traded in a DECADE after she bought it.

                  OTOH, my new car shows the average speed it has been driven and, right now, it says 19mph.

                        The wife of the seller of mine wanted a boat, hence the selling of the Heep for something more tow-worthy.

                            • Coopers are a pretty popular Heep tire. I doubt Jim gives a shit that some guy went into the guys house.
