Richmond driver of Bond-style car shaken, stirred over bill

Richmond driver of Bond-style car shaken, stirred over bill

Quote:
Imagine, for a second, you’d just shelled out $200,000 for a very rare sports car that was made famous by the James Bond movies.

Then, fast forward the dream scenario and picture a nightmare where you crash the car — a very lightly-used, Aston Martin DB9 in Skyfall silver — have only basic insurance and are facing a $132,000 repair bill.


Who pays $200k for a car and then just gets basic insurance???

That is, however, exactly the situation a Richmond resident, Jessica Liu, finds herself in, having driven the stunning limited edition — only 100 were made — for only a few kilometres before she inexplicably veered off the road and hit a large stone near Blundell and Garden City roads in December 2015.
Quote:
“I’m not going to pay a cent; I don’t even want the car back anymore; I want a refund (from the dealer),” Liu, who is in her 30s, told the Richmond News via email from China.

“I don’t think it’s safe to drive. I just drove it for two weeks; I don’t trust the car, I don’t trust the dealer and I don’t trust the autoshop’s invoices.”

inexplicably veered off the road = too busy using her rose gold iPhone 7 Plus 256GB while driving as a walkie talkie to WeChat some other sad mainlander.

was thinking exactly this. seriously fail to see this logic. typical mainlander attitude, fucks up and blames anything and everything else before casting blame on themselves. crashes car, blames manufacturer. burns food, blames oven. smfh

The only fortunate outcome of this mainlander's accident is that no other driver was injured by her terrible driving.

She wanted to save money on her insurance bill by only getting basic coverage.

That poor stone near Blundell and Garden City road.

Penny saved is a penny earned

At least it didn't get stolen. What are the chances it had theft coverage?

haha, oh believe me, I have.

Long story short, we were doing a renovation contract for this one dude, he wouldn't pay money on time, so eventually the work was delayed/halted.
Tried to put the blame on us, sent us lawyer letters, threatened us, put our personal info on WeChat, then sent people to come and vandalize our car (it was written off ), kept threatening us.

Eventually, the police had to take us away from our home and hide us somewhere else, in order to find and arrest him lol


Seriously though. They are a whole messed up bunch.

are the rotors actually model-specific or can you put a FoMoCo part on it and still function to specification?

A little more info for you guys!

Apparently she wasn't even driving it was her friend.

This is car #014/100 (Bad luck for chinese, probably why she doesn't want it anymore)

She agreed on the quote, paid half and then had a fit and got lawyers involved. Storage fees and all that was in the original docs. So basically got lawyers involved cause she wants to try and reneg the contract. So really there is nothing is of a surprise from her end she was aware of all of this and signed a contract. Shes just a cheap bitch who is now dragging this on because shes currently in China.

She probably brought this to the media outlets hoping people would feel bad for her.

Anybody else laugh at the fact that a "stone" could do that kind of damage?

I agree with her, why do they need to install new rotors when she's never gonna use them. Take out her turn signals while your at it.

Not trying to defend her, but based on the article she's questioning why they are buying 2 rotors instead of just 1 if only one of them were damaged.

Explaining parts of the $132,000 bill, Frank Van Pykstra, co-owner of BA, said the brakes are ceramic and, therefore, “they can’t be machined” like regular brakes.

As for needing a pair of rotors and not just one, Van Pykstra said, “When you’re braking in this car, in any car really, the brakes need to be balanced. You can’t replace just one.”

I don't know if it's BS or not, but the repair shop claims that the brakes need to be balanced, so they need to be replaced in pairs.

My mechanic told me the same thing, because if you have uneven rotors when you slam on the brakes there'll be slight pressure difference and you might veer to one side.

I'm sure the effect is more pronounced in a hi-po car?
