    Default What a waste....

    Was in my local Sainsburys getting fuel today and spotted another EDT100 " I have never seen another one of these cars before on the road and have only heard ppl talk about them on this site" so heres me thinking hey imagine that, but as I parked next to the car I soon saw a great looking car totally BU66ERED up.
    Talk about a reps car well, alloys must of been hit off every kirb in town, black mud guards missing and the two that were still on the offside had HOLES in them More hits, scores and dents on the bodywork you would think its been parked in a supermarket car park most of its poor days and its was only a 53 plate.
    When the guy who owned it came out from paying his "£10 " of fuel he never even looked over when I was filling my car up (you know the score when you see another Veccy that has had wee bits changed on it, oh nice car mate) nothing.
    Sorry for the rant but I thought chr1st ive worked hard for my car and to see another one getting left to rot well it p1ssed me off.
    His boss has said to him "right pick one of these cars for yourself" and he's said " errr that one there" not even bothering with whats he's picked.
    Once again sorry for the rant....

    not all cars are lucky enough to receive the attention that we give ours, some people just see cars as a tool to get from A to B in, not caring how it does it.

    shame to see a special edition go down that route though!

    He probably used the pin the tail on the donkey method to choose his new company hack.

    Shame really as he should have been lumbered with a 1.8 LS in poverty spec for what it was worth

    When I got my first (and so far only) company car a couple of years ago, Iwas given a ceiling of £18.5k - "choose what you want and so long as the lease hire cost comes back ok, you can have it". So eventually I went for a Mk V golf GTTDi. Had all the toys of the veccy, a little quicker and perhapsa little more "kudos" too. For 6 months I washed it as often as I could and really treated it well. But the newness wears off and cos it wasnt mine, I had no vested interest in looking after it well. In the little over 18months I had it, it did 90k miles, and only got washed every 18k miles when it got serviced.

    Very shamefull I know, but thats how it goes with company cars.

    another example of company cars......

    I chose one company to work for which I mostly regret, as the owner turned out to be a right 'bully' making everyones life a misery.

    I hate Bullies and spent most of my time fighting him in the meeting room whilst the rest of the company sat listening through the walls.

    Anyway, the more pressure that was exerted from him, the more I took it out on the company car.... One time, which made some of the guys in the office almost wet themselves..... I reversed the car to the far end of the carpark and pulled the handbrake on as hard as possible. I then selected first gear and wheelspan the whole length, ripping up all the gravel and leaving two GIANT 4 inch score marks in the ground, whilst I exited the building....

    Bar Steward......

    The next day, everyone was waiting for a MASSIVE CONFRONTATION, but he didnt say anything... not a word....

    I was only thinking this today whilst working on a fleet Vectra, was thinking I'm so glad my car was a demonstrator & previous owner to me did 7k in 2 years & obviously loved it.
