They know I am displeased with the model in general, as I refered to it as a piece of shit. I tried to find comprehensive crash test ratings for it, my search-fu must have been low, or I dun fucked up.

The car I suggested, a 2011 Chevy Cruze (my Dad said the 540i was 7,500) was around the same price (I'm not sure if that 7,500 was after tax or anything like that). Has a good safety rating and KILLS the 540i in the MPG race.

But hey, I'm not paying for it, so I am not the one getting gyped. It still boggles the mind why they refused to even LOOK at the Cruze though.

They thought I would be happy with just Bluetooth, I guess.

So if you're not paying for it are you going to get a car of your own (because as Anj said, sharing it with your brother is a beyond stupid idea(paraphrasing a little)) because you should get a motorbike. Big Grin The MPG is fantastic, there's only 1 seat so you wont get "drive your brother too.." and your brother wont have his motorbike licence so wont be able to ride it so it will be all yours (where as if you got a car and your brothers was in the shop he'd probably want to borrow yours).
It's a win-win-win-win-win.

Ummm, no.

RE: Ranting corner
A friend from college started a GoFundMe campaign today. He and his wife are both in wheel chairs, and they're raising cash for the modifications they'll need to make a new vehicle accessible for them.

The campaign has been shared 81 times.
It's received 3 donations. Dodgy

Here's a crazy idea, what if everyone who shared this on Facebook and Twitter asking others to help out their friend opened their own wallets too? It just seems a little tacky to try to get others to support a cause you won't support yourself.

Santa will be putting tampons in someone's stocking this year and it isn't me.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

My husband bought a Cruze a couple years ago because the gas savings were supposed to be so great - they really weren't. And that was the most uncomfortable damn car to ride in. He wasn't too upset when I told him to get rid of the damn thing.

Maybe you'll get a nice remote controlled thermostat from Santa. Tongue
