    I'm tempted to drive down there, present the coupon and ask them to change my oil......

    That would be funny! I wonder how long it would take them to figure out the problem?

    I wonder if they would wait 10 minutes, then thank you for your business and charge you for the service?

    I LOVE it!!! Reminds me of when I took my car to my detailer the first time. I asked if he had ever done a Tesla before. "Oh yeah! I have literally done every kinda car on the road." I responded by asking him what all would be included? His response--"The exterior, including wheels and tires. Seats, flooring, dash and rear deck. Inside of the trunk and even the engine." Really??!! The engine?? as I popped the frunk. "Sure, but I already know the engine is in the back on these kinda cars, right?" I am still chuckling over that exchange!

    I hate these mailers and wish there were a universal "leave me alone" list. I'm assuming they get the info from car registration records?


    Heh, did you let him do it anyway?

    I just asked him what discount I could get if I told him NOT to do the "engine". He gave me a $50 reduction in his normal pricing. But in exchange for the discount he wanted pictures to post to his website. I thought it a fair exchange and negotiated a the same discount EVERY time I bring it to him. He allowed for that so we are both happy.
