I was walking to my car today after work and I saw a piece of paper above my driver side car handle. My initial reaction was, "Crap! We're getting car fliers at work now?" I hated this crap when I was in college. When I got closer, I saw that it was more like a Post-It, then I thought... "Oh no, don't tell me someone dinged my car." I pulled the sticky off the window and read it:
"I have a question about your TSX.
(NO - I didn't hit it)"
The note was on a "sister" company Post-It, so I believe he works for my company too. I gave him a call back and left a voice message that I was the TSX owner and was responding to his note. I had to call and leave a second message because I forgot to leave my number the first time. I hope it's not something stupid, like he is trying to sell me something. I'll keep you guys updated. Anyone want to guess what's this all about?
The guy who left a note on my car, Mike, contacted me today. Turns out that he also has an Acura TSX. He explained that his manual 2006 model recently got into a head on collision and that he wanted to compared the engine bay of an undamaged TSX. He was concerned about the repairs done on his car.
I popped the hood to my 2005 TSX in the parking lot at work so he could check it out. He stated that a couple of the wiring near the radiator was zip-tied on his car and that it didn't look right. I told him to take a picture of my car and show it to the people who worked on his car. He agreed, however he didn't bring a good quality camera and only had his phone. I told him if he needed that I'll pop my hood again on another day.
Then we just talked. I asked him if he was an Acurazine.com member and he said he was. I told him I'm on that site like every other day. He also said how he wanted to install a cold air intake (CAI) and I told him I wanted to do the same, but just never got around to it. I also commented about how I have been wanting to get a the service manual for my car, but it's like $75 + shipping + tax. We both agreed that we should have paid a little extra for the navigation. He said, "Thanks!" then we shook hands and parted ways. About 10 minutes later he emailed a link to photos of his car wreck.
Yikes! I would never want to see my car like this.
