so i go to pick up my car from the shop where i had my Control arms installed.
I pay my shit, get in the car and notice the clock was reset, like somone pulled the battery. I go in and ask the guy what the hell thats about. He says the battery died while aligning the car(battery has 20thousand miles on it..and you know BMW batteries are fucking beefy) because they had the brake held.
Bullshit! i have left my lights on for 4 hours...battery didnt die. sorry...lie number one.
then i leave, annoyed..but what ever. Not really understanding why they would pull the battery terminals. Then i notice that my mileage is 50 miles then where it was when i left. (i remeber because i hit 130000 on friday night and didnt drive the car till sunday, when i drove it 60 miles, then another 60 miles on monday, when i dropped the car off.) The car has 130200 on it right now, after a 5 miles drive home.
Meaning these fuckers "test" drove my car for almost 80 miles......I assume they reset the OBC because the MPG changed radically(I reset it three days before and it was up at 25mpg cause i was taking it easy...and it would go lower very fast because the average was made in a short span of time.)
godamit...not very much i can do. Called the manger and told him i didnt appriciate my car being driven almost 80 miles. If anything comes up with it Im gonna flip a fucking bitch
We all get the urge...Saturday early morning...nothing to do till noon...
