Oct 28th 2008 12:10AM You're kind of off topic Sandy.. The topic was with regards to purchasing some low end BMW/Audi/Mercedez etc.. for the price of some Toyotas or Honda's. Your comment was on how the service at Toyota or Honda wasn't up to Par comparred to BMW.. and I made a correction, because Toyota offers life time free oil changes, etc. suggesting that you shouldn't talk about a company you don't know anything about.
One line out of my whole comment, wouldn't be considered 'judgement' you're just offended, that old saying; the truth hurts?
The Term 'Poseur' is not (hip hop) its origin dates back to the 1800's and the definition is; a person who attempts to impress others by assuming or affecting a manner, degree of elegance, sentiment, etc., other than his or her true one. I meant it exactly this way therefore not incorrect in definition or the statement.
As far as the price of my truck I did pay that much, I get my vehicles fully loaded with extras, with regards to what I need and look for in a vehicle.. Not to mention we have a higher cost of living here in Alberta,Canada.
By the way, most people work hard for their money!
Oct 27th 2008 12:31PM We all love our luxury vehicles here.. I drive a Jaguar XK 2008, but I also have a Toyota Tundra Crew Max LTD, 2008 ( I need for towing) and unless you actually have been serviced at Toyota you can't really talk about how they treat you. I never pay for oil changes on the Toyota either, and I have life time free oil changes, and they do them on the spot, that I don't need a loaner vehicle. haha.. The price tag on my Toyota was $65 k .. You should try informing yourself on what your writing, with regards to other companies, because its apparent you have no idea.
I agree with Bill in that the beamers felt rough, drove rough. BMW's are good vehicles, but have you noticed they are everywhere, very attainable, run of the mill ordinary car. Teenagers and young adults everywhere have them and yet you act like driving your c class, your something special for having this car. Its obvious you drive your car for the logo, playing the part of the 'poseur' badly...
Your vehicle retails used (depending on the year) a 2004 BMW 325 CI, with minimal mileage for $27k. Generally between $24K up to $37k for a 2006.. in US prices.
