I have my OMVIC and I'm in sales there, Dixie has 12 dealerships, much more than you and your so-called importing job. Your lack of car knowledge combined with your lack of intelligence must be hurting your wallet, or your lack of a good credit score.
The US dollar will be on par with the Canadian dollar, give it time. It was at 94 cents in June ; )

Keep throwing those arrogant random insults! Sounds really educated coming from a 20 year old student kid who's summer job consists of being a lacky/assistant for Dixie's autogroups top salespeople.

I've been doing the entire autogroups websites before you knew how to drive.
:p

I guess I haven't accomplished as much as you with my two successful businesses compared to your infinite knowledge of the automobile you've obtained by working part time assistant summer jobs at Toyota dealerships!


I keep laughing how a broke student like yourself has the audacity to comment on someone much more financially stable than yourself. But thanks for the comments! I had a good laugh all the way to the bank!

BMW Waterloo quoted 2 hours labour + parts to change the air filters on the M5. Because it has Dinan CAI they said that they have to take off the front bumper to get access to the filters. I looked at it at home, took off 3 screws to remove a piece of the cowling on the underside of the car and lone behold the filter was right there and accessible. It took me 20 minutes and the bumper didn't need to come off (even if it did that's only a 10min job anyways).

theyre just trying to justify keeping their trade alive. Dont get me wrong, their are alot of GOOD mechanics out there that know their shit and understand the priciniples of how things work. But for every good 1, there is probably 5 bad ones.

most mechanics is on piece work anyways,its the service manager calling the shots and of course the owner.Most cars profit margins are somewhat thin they get it back on parts and service.
