      nice LED shop light -- i had that one, cordless, and it lasted two days before it left the shop hanging from a heater hose on a Beretta. never saw it again.

      we do mostly electronic aftermarket upgrades as well as wheels/tires

      We do a ton of Mercedes Benz cars but they aren't threadworthy to me anymore.

      not a dealer but we do work for a lot of dealers

      I like the fact that this dealer relegates the SLR to the parking lot.

      i thought it would be great working here but it has turned me into a big car snob.

      after driving most of these cars i see an M3 and go "eh, i guess it is ok"

      CAR SNOB!!!!

      i can easily see how you could be like that. an M3 really isnt a big deal since there are so many, but i completely understand. still, looks like a badass job

      It's clearly intentional, obviously the bugger doesn't have a clue so BillLe's having a spot of fun with the boffin. Next thing you know he'll be driving a lorry, and Bob's your uncle.
