Talking $5 dollar car wash..

Today I brought my car for a $5 car wash and it turns out it’s an $8 car wash. I was rip-off!

The other day I brought my Japanese car to the same car wash place, they charge me $5. Today I bring my BMW without asking the price because I thought it was $5 and they charge me $ 8=$US4.

So I why charge me $8? They’ve said I’m rich and I drive a BMW. So $3 extra is nothing for me. But I’ve paid it though because I don’t want them swearing at me when I drive out of the place. I will bring my car to a another car wash.

I guess that’s what BMW driver get.Expensive service!!

That's just plain old fu**ed up. I would not have paid. If it says $5, it's $5, no matter what car they do.

Yeah I know I shouldn't pay it but those teenagers looked very poor and so what is $3. They only use a bucket of water, sponge, old towels, vacuum, amour all and a water horse from people's house.
I think next time, I should bring it to a proper car wash shop where they have a good Machine and fix price. It's $10 per wash.

"Z" it's pretty much the same here too.(maybe not car wash prices) Anytime you mention BMW the price goes up. Calling around for G/Fs AC recharge (I'm too f'ckg lazy to work on her crap) her car and mine use the exact amount of R134 freon but they wanted $75 more for a BMW.. Hell my guages & evac system didn't cost that much and R134 freon is the same $ no matter what car it's going in. I ended up doing the AC on her car after that quote.

Very True,

In a workshop (not dealer) whenever they see any European car, the service charge will be double.

Last week, I sent my car to a workshop to replace the old AC centre vent. The old one is broken. They usually charge $10 on simple things like add engine oil, replace license plate etc. This AC vent replacement service cost me $30.
Here’s a Picture if you don’t know what I’m talking.

I bought the parts from the dealer. But it's still much cheaper than the Dealer where it cost $70-$100 service charge.

Yes. My car was involved in an accident in 2004. The Toyota SUV hit both doors. The dealer does the repair but the new paint do not seems to match with the old.

RealBMw02,
That is very true. I always can refuse to pay the $8 but who knows your car might be a target for vandal.

Rooz,
Maybe mine is a RHD edition?

i think all cars look better RHD.....I think it makes sense, most people are right handed, so it makes sense that steering should be done with the right hand....
