    I sometimes question why I chose to buy my 2006 BMW 330i M-Sport. I had a small accident last week, a basketball hoop, of all things, fell on the car and did some superficial damage to the drivers side.

    This week, I have taken the car into the panel beaters to get repaired under insurance, and I was given the use of a 2005 Toyota Camry 2.4 Sportivo, by Brian Sokolich Auto Body Repair Centre.

    Driving this courtesy car compared to my own car, made me realise it was worth spending the extra money on a quality car. Firstly, it wallowed like a boat, not like the 'Sportivo' badge would imply. Secondly, it has no traction control and the wheels spinning madly at the slightest over pressure of the accelerator. So absolutely no feeling of confidence in driving the vehicle, let alone out on the open road, should I ever venture at there.

    So after this experience in an 'average' car, I am certainly more than ever convinced I made the right decision.

    Yes, a more expensive car is nicer.

    Try comparing to a Toyota Mark X or Lexus IS of the same vintage, the BMW will probably still come out on top but the gap will be much smaller than a povo spec Camry.

    I've driven some cars with very old rubber, it can be pretty lulzy.

    All 2.4 camry's are only compatible with Supercats

    Did it have the Camry dent?

    I'm wondering if it's rocking the Linglong + no shocks combo. That's good for some pogo action, even with no power.

    either way its an apples and oranges comparison from someone who knows little of what theyre talking about

    I knew enough to get the right BMW after a multiple times mechanical check by BMW specialist (once to identify the faults and once to check that they had repaired the faults to his satisfaction, including the right transmission and cooling fluid replacements.

    TBH: I think the tyres are shot and it was in the wet, that did not help.

    Let's be honest, who doesn't rip sick skids in a courtesy car? Those cars are destined for a damn good thrashing.

    My work doesn't have them for this very reason haha.

    In all seriousness, If I have to use a rental\courtesy car, or even one of the work cars, I will give them a check over for the basics, fluids etc cause while I wont exactly baby the vehicle, I don't want to needlessly ruin it

    Apparently I'm the only one that does this, especially at work, the amount of times I've pulled out a dry dipstick or opened a cap to a dry radiator is far too many, I get it, its a boring 1.5L Corolla wagon, and its not yours, but goddamn

    I had to drive one of my staff's exploder today.
    One of the tyres had gone through the canvas and was on the inner shell of the rubber.
    It was a very nervous drive.

    Because you were in a Ford?

  24. Post
    That too.
    It's one of the V8 ones, which makes it even more explodey than the V6 lol
