One morning on the way to the gym my car crapped out. I spent the entire day out of the office dealing with crap. Luckily the BMW service guy was amazing, stuck me in a loaner and off I went. It took two days to fix it. What was wrong? IDK, something with the fan.
So this happened NYEE. I picked up Troy after service and the conflicting signs guided me to reverse into spikes. So… I punctured the rear passenger tire. Thank GOD it wasn’t both rear tires or else I would’ve been out $600 instead of $300.
I had a great one I got for free through this Amazon deal, but the stickiness on the suction was not as effective so I decided to purchase one so I can continue my facetime activity on my way home from the office.
Run flats do not get plugged. I knew this. That’s why I went to a friend of a friend’s shop to get it done. If I had gone to a random tire shop, they would have had me pay for a new tire, which I knew I didn’t have to do. With all the construction going on around our home, I knew it was just our luck to get a huge as nail stuck in the tire. But once it starts to leak air, I will need to replace the tire. Looking to spend about $500, dammit! Maybe I should have gotten the tire protection when I signed the lease on Troy!
You know me! I had to get a personalized plate. I forgot who it was but I asked what I should get and they said “BORAMOM” which would have been really funny, but I opted not to. I wasn’t sure if my mom would be okay with a personalized plate but I still did it anyway. I saw another white X6 drive by with a personalized plate and I felt uncool. lol
You’ll have to wait 12 weeks to see what it is, if it gets approved. I’ll have to wait 12 weeks and be basic… 🙁
I got my mom a new car and I had to get her plate frames. Although when I showed her the photo, she said it wasn’t her style. That’s why I got black! LOL
Ok, so maybe I got the plate frames for myself, but that’s all I’m going to do. I WAS going to get personalized plates, but maybe I won’t. My mom wouldn’t like that either. 😛
I also wanted to black out the wheels and the emblems, but I’ll just do the emblems and not the wheels. Don’t want to draw too much attention to the car while my mom is driving since she drives, just as aggressive as I do. 🙂
First, I’d like to say THANK YOU to Yi-Wen & Paul at Irvine BMW for helping us get into a beautiful car. We took a week to think about it after our first visit and we were all glad to have walked away with the BMW X6 M Sport.
Don’t get me wrong, the only SUV I’ll drive is still the Range Rover (and not the sport) but the X6 comes in a close second. I fell in love with the X6 when it first came out and I’ve had my eye on it and finally we have it in our garage. The Range Rover was a bit too much for us to get right now. I will drive the Range Rover again soon. And doesn’t the X6 look like a Polar Bear???
My mom was in dire need of a new vehicle and since I got a nice promotion at the end of the year, I decided that getting her a new car would be my first duty. My worry for her safety was #1. Then of course, I wanted it too.
I’ve known Yi-Wen since 2001-ish. My ex-husband and I got an employee an M3 under my credit (which the employee got his payment deducted out of his paycheck monthly).
Then I got a 645i, in 2005, with an exer who put me through the wringer (finally out of my hair and not affecting my life anymore).
All said and done, I was waiting to get back to Yi-Wen and get another BMW.
We got the 2016 X6 xDrive 35i with premium and sport packages. Alpine white on black Dakota leather, although I could have gotten Coral red or the Cognac. I wouldn’t have minded the Nappy leather too but oh well. The trim is the Polar Wood Trim, definitely not my favorite, actually the worst of it all, but I didn’t really have an option to be picky. AND it isn’t as bad as it used to be.
All this came into place since I’ve put my finances in order. I know exactly how much I have, what goes out, how much to spend, and what’s saving. I’ve never felt so refreshed in my life. 🙂
I’ve also given him a name already, let me introduce you to Troy. 😀
