Yumcha Buys a Car and They Won't Let Him Have It **UPDATE: They Let Him Have It**

...until literally, 2019. And about 2 weeks into the new year.

The running gag was that Saintor who apparently bought an S5 himself may have got his before moi. WELL, WE'LL NEVER KNOW WILL WE! I banned him before he could reveal if he got the car.

Anyways, more pics later but dealership needs time to prep. Likely depending on schedule, I'll pick it up Tuesday or Wednesday as they have to winterize the darn thing to survive the Hoth winters here.






Going away will be the 2012 MINI Countryman...We'll keep the older sea cucumber because it's pretty reliable and well, I like destroying environments.

Gorgeous color combo. That should be a blast to drive up there in the winter or any time of year for that matter. I hope that thing has the air suspension and that it is just locked at shipping height cause it needs a drop bad if not.

Thanks, sir.

The car was literally just rolled off the transport so I suspect yeah, the suspension was locked...I did not get additional sports suspension option but did add differential to my package. I also passed up on the steering option too.

Yup! Because Saintor got banned before he could tell us and so, technically speaking, I got my car first.

Of course it is. It is immediately 80% slower by virtue that a is behind the wheel. Just imagine me on the fast lane on the highway going 10 below the limit.


And me sitting dangerously close to the steering wheel that I can literally lick it without tilting or moving my neck.

That's me.

To satisfy you nimrods, you're telling me that I have to take delivery of the car next week with bags of bacon and waffles with me...? The dealership is going to be like WTFBBQ...

NO...maybe there will be a robot. But that's it.

...because pulling out a robot and going pew pew pew before I drive off in the S5 for a picture is ALOT less weird.

They know I can't drive so, a special edition.


The spacers used to keep the car from bouncing during transit will be removed by Tuesday's pick-up. It'll be normal height per the S5 by then.

Just sayin', could've happened in transport, hence why they've been making you wait all of these months. They do have to "fix it" after, right?


That, or it's uses and rolled back
