I didnt know it could get this bad. My husband has decided that he is going to be the one to finally fix the clunk and everything else with the V. FedEx and UPS have been making deliveries all week and our hallway is loaded with boxes everywhere. He has an appt with a mechanic on Friday and I have asked how we are getting this all there - BUT heres the BEST PART

He's made a power point presentation on his laptop to take to the mechanic. The presentation shows problems to be fixed, parts ordered and a list of possible solutions, emails from the forum which describe the problems. When the car comes back he had promised me that all the problems will be fixed and he will no longer be obsessed with the car. Yeah, Right!

I cant wait to be there and see the mechanic's response while he sits through a 30 minute power point presentation! My guess is we'll be looking for another mechanic.

Well the first step in recovery is admitting you have a problem ;)

I can see the boxes now, one from Corsa, one from Kooks, then the other few from Mangnuson. :stirpot: :eek:

Its not as bad as she says. You can still walk around the boxes and we can probably get them in one car.

I had to act fast, she is talking about more mods for herself, which means a transfer of wealth from me to her plastic surgeon. Some of you may remember I lost the chrome wheels this way.

And its a short Power Point presentaion.

Please tell me he's not coming to Lindsay Cadillac!!! :eek:

I am a little short on time and I am not so sure I can sit through a power point presentation!
While I admire his resourcefulness... well. A simple note with some numbers on it would be all I would need.

Well I dropped the car off. After 20 minutes the shop owner seemed a little impatient with me. I don't know why, I was just organizing the information for him, telling him what the solutions were, telling him which parts to use, and generally acting like I knew more than him. Jezz, some people are sensitve.

Well if you fix the (CLUNK & CLANK) it will all be worth the power point presentation. My dealer thinks I am just :horse:

I think a powerpoint would be cool, just leave me the file and I'll look it over when I pull the car inside.

OMG! All you need to do is to get it to play in a continuous loop on the Nav screen over and over and over while it there!
