Day 198: Mixed Feelings
I've had a few issues with the car that have been pretty disappointing, even more disappointing has been my experience with the dealer in Melbourne that I bought the car from who has been constantly trying to avoid their warranty responsibilities. Here's a tip for anyone looking for a second hand car: Don't, under any circumstances, buy from Wapshott Motors in Melbourne.
The experience has left me considering cutting my losses and selling it, unfortunately I know if I do this it will cost me. The idea of selling it prompted me to take today's photo, when I got it back from the workshop it had been washed and looked great so I took it down to the lake for a quick photo shoot at lunch time. I will add here that the workshop that has been doing my warranty work has been fantastic, I highly recommend Anthony Costello Automotive in Fyshwick. Anthony specialises in BMW & Mercedes Benz service and he's very good at what he does.
It really is a lovely car to drive, I also love how it looks and now that everything seems to be working as it should I'm in two minds as to what I should do. I might have to just drive it for a while and see how I feel in a month... or when the next thing goes wrong with it.
