That's correct, I didn't think an apology wasn't necessary, and, Oliver,
sorry for sounding harsh on you.
The tone of my comments were set by both a sense that more and more(not
one single incident) comments were popping up...and a bad mood I've been
in all weekend because of 2 inches of sewage that backed up into half of
my apartment :-(
I agree with most, if not all, of what Phil said in his post; but
honestly, I have to admit I have the same reservations about going to a
new mechanic that I don't know, as I do going to a dealer I don't
know. As Phil points out, Clair, Carlsen, etc...are all well-known
dealers and, by most people, highly recommended...so I felt comfortable
going to them, just like I felt comfortable taking my car to a new
mechanic when I moved here to NY.
I don't want any of the newer folk like Oliver to feel I'm coming down on
them or I "hate" them; I think it's great to see a lot of new "faces" come
out. Don't be intimidated; sometimes, I'm just grumpy :-|
Actually, speaking of grumpy, I'm feeling grumpy that not a single
contribution has been made to the FAQ-O-Matic. What's it that they say
about horses and water? I didn't expect much participation, but...I was
at least hoping for something :-(
Very cute...tonight, a gent walked by my car as I was about to pull out of
a space at the supermarket. He looked over+down, gave a disapproving
sneer as his car 2000 Lexus 4-something or other* went "woop woop."
At the stoplight or cash register my friend, any time...
*the one that has the original-looking Mercedes-like headlights; not the
original-looking Lexus "TT" :-) Does anybody else see a huge
injustice? It's like they took a Merc coupe, a little Mitsu Ecplise, and
a WHOLE lot of TT, added a couple thousand pounds of useless garbage, and
put it into production...
