post #25291 of 26372
I rarely use profanity IRL. Had so much fun with this bitch at Tesla HQ. Security and a few others broke us up. Nothing physical, but she just ran past the line and was totally unapologetic.

She was fat and her was obviously a used first gen, so that was low hanging fruit. Then I said super mean things. Eventually the other people in the charging line (and at Fremont, there a ton of stalls, this bitch just blew past all of us) got in on the action.

Probably heard the McRib was back.

Man, Leaf girl she was half between here and SF. I wish.

I was livid when Tesla Bitch wasn't remotely apologetic and acting like the stalls belong to her and said what if it was my mom.

I said 'no-one would lick your hairy dry twat even if you pulled a few thousand out of your purse and judging by the car, I know you can't afford that'

She was just a total bitch to all of us in line.

Thankfully security and the others in line stood up for me.

Pardon my French- hope no timeout.

Had no idea i could read French. happy.gif

Agree with you @bruhmuman. This thread is firing on all cylinders. If somebody followed the thread. And produced a show based on our chat scroll with vids and a host? Would be like Top Gear x TMZ.

RTC. A used camshaft makes a nice decorative lamp. Itb's and a cam set with Toda head gasket for the win.

We should put together a show. It'd be super fun imo. You, FF, GF, HRoi, Dino, and our Captain Slow Piob.

lots of good advice above.  I guess the question becomes, do you love that car and the options/colors, and will you feel badly if someone else buys it?  If not, then no worries keep searching and if they call you back great if not who cares...find/buy a different one.

 

However, if you love that car (colors and options), then maybe you want to find out what matching the other guy's offer is (I presume its less than the $2K).  It may be a sales tactic, it may not be.  Cars with interesting options and colors, in great condition, often sell faster than you would think, surprising would be buyers.  We traded in our 5 year old manual transmission Boxster RS60 which had about 6,500 miles.  It had lots of nice options.  They had the car for a total of 17 days,and car sold within 10 days of being listed on their website.  I bumped into the sales manager a few weeks later and said, I was surprised how quickly it sold.  He said, it was funny, because they had a lot of people come in and look at it in the first few days they had the car.  He said, they told would be buyers, "Its a really nice car and won't last."  Most presumed it was just sales talk (and I can't blame them).  However, after the car sold, then he said they got a calls back about the car from people who had looked at it and who were ready to negotiate, only to discover it sold.  The manager told me, several people said, they thought the salespeople were joking or just using sales talk to sell the car.  The manager said, it felt great to say, "No, it was a good car and when we said it would sell fast we were serious."

 

Wishing you luck with whatever you decide.

Look closely and you can see the shades of white aren't even within 50 shades of one another. Salesguy's response: "That's normal for all Porsches."



Who knows, maybe the dealer I'm working with is being honest. The car is a local, low milage one owner car and I could perhaps see a Porsche dealer picking it up, slapping on a CPO tag and asking $10k more.

 

 

That nose is almost grey

Don't forget RTC . He's our Richard Hammond.smile.gif

Yeah, haha.We just provide content via posts. Winning formula.
You wanna host it?
@Digmenow could. . Where is he? Drives a sweet 80's Merc convertible.

Today's "used Porsche talk" would be a great topic. With a quick "live throw to @Bruhmuman". With an actor in a suit screaming at a fat bitch at a Tesla charging stand. crackup[1].gif

Psa- R32 skylines have Tripled in price over 24 months. crazy.gif

Tripled?  What was the price on those things as some JDM Skylines GTS-T's over here are like $8-$15K depending on condition, mods, and such.  GTRs still seem to be in the $20K+ range though.

 

As for waiting in line for a Supercharging station....Tesla HQ hasn't installed more and people just wait?

post #25303 of 26372
2 years ago, i bought a 100% stock R33 Gts25t. Low miles, flawless interior. In pewter silver. For $2,600.
After checking out a tastefully modded R32 Gtr. Dark metallic grey. For $8,800.

Now? I see clean low kilometer Gtr's are up around 30k!!!!! And 32 gtst's are almost 10k.

Now you guys can import them? You can pay too much for them.
post #25304 of 26372
Are they selling for that or they being listed.

I can wear a suit if need be. Much more comfortable in lulu sweatpants in charcoal and an American apparel t shirt in white though. Both purchased on sale of course. The rest of you would have to bring up the SF side of the game. smile.gif

Also I didn't scream at her, but the words were choice.

The Skyline was one of my dream cars growing up and my favorite in Gran Turisimo. The only cars that beat it for me were the XJ220, F40, F50, and obviously the F1.

That entire lineage all the way to the GT-R is just so expensive now, but still so lust worthy.
