    It was an all around boring sunday early in the day as I was just at home watching football. Then my friend and I decided to go eat and watch the Jets game and after that go to a local car dealer to check out an A8 Audi he wants to pick up. Well we park up in the front of the dealer around 5:30 or so and we go to the back where the cars are at. Exclusively Audi and BMW ( and some porsche). Well were there checking out the cars and like 45 minutes later when were about to take off the lot is locked and there's no way for us to get out. There's one guy left that worked there, who rides his bike home BTW and he told us it was his third day on the job and there was nobody else to open the lot for us to take off. And we're tripping out that its 6 PM and everything is already closed and there's no one left but us. Even security. So we end up calling a friend of ours for a ride, he says that he can't go right away but would be there in like an hour. So my friend has the super genius idea to test drive some of the cars while we wait. I mean we're talking every single car back there had keys inside the car and no one was around. We saw the M6 and decided to take it for a stroll. :happy: Remember, the lot itself was locked, so we were taking it just for a few spins around the lot. Punched it a few times and I mean, if you've ever been inside one you know, its a beautiful experience. Then we took the A8 for a stroll too which is super smooth, great sound, interior, etc. A little after that my friend showed up. It was a fun experience. :satisfied: No one was around to say anything to us and just all around fun.

    Has anyone ever been joyriding here? If by any chance they would come to find out, would they press charges? How bad is it to do that here in California, does anyone know?

    Where did you get the key for the M6? or the A8? They don't leave keys in the cars, so did you break into the place?

    That's complete horseshit. I worked at a dealership in college. The keys are under lockdown all the time because the boss knows that even employees want to take the cars out for a joyride.

    I'm not questioning you. I'm just quoting OP. Whether his story is true or not is a completely different question.

    His story is false.Believe me, B1os, I know from whence I speak. OP is full or complete fucking horseshit. He's a 16 year old virgin trying to impress his friends in SW&D.

    Serious.

    I used to work at a dealership too and the keys to the cars in the lot were very hard to get to - definitely weren't left in the cars. Anyway, no, I have never been joy riding. When I was little we did have some servants that took one of the family cars on a joy ride and crashed it. Funny enough my parents didn't do anything about it.

    Come on, guys be fair... This will probably the only time he'll be able to drive an m6 or an a8 in his entire life, unless of course he straightens up and become a valet.

    Nah.

    I dont try to impress anyone with a penis. And that's everyone who goes on SW&D. I was just trying to say what I thought was a cool story. Since we were locked out, we went back the next day. The sec. guard at the door asked us a few questions, wanted to compare the registration in the car to my friend's driver's license and that was it. I don't know if they went through the tape after that or if they even really care, since there wasn't any damage to the cars. Like I said, the whole lot was locked down. I guess that's why they don't bother taking the keys out of the cars when they close. There's literally no way to take them out.

    You don't have to believe me if you dont want to. There's no way that I could afford an M6. At that price range, even if I could I probably wouldn't anyway since there's a couple cars I find more appealing than that. But whatevs dude. I doubt you could afford it. And even though I just test drove it for a few minutes. I enjoyed it. Dont hate bruh.

    The M6 and A8 weren't in the lot. They were up in the parking structure, and the parking structure on there is open. They usually have security 24/7 there, that is why when we got there, we didn't think too much of when they were closing up. We assumed someone would open for us. But they left the place completely closed. Even some guy putting tile got locked up. So we just took advantage of the fact that there was no security and to take get back to them for locking us up. So yea, I guess RedLantern might be right and it would apply to Tort Law :D
