Cars and Cocaine Are a Helluva Mix at This Audi Dealership

cars and cocaine are a helluva mix at this audi dealership

A pissed-off motorist wants the world to know that a service technician working at a dealership that might take rolled-up bills as a downpayment took his car on an alleged powder-fueled joyride. And he has dashcam video of the whole thing.

A revealing video posted to Youtube yesterday by user “Carrera Chris” documents the April 12 point-of-view journey of his vehicle as it leaves a Palo Alto Audi dealership with the technician behind the wheel.

Apparently speeding around town at double the speed limit wasn’t enough of a rush for the driver, so he makes a pit stop that sounds to the viewer like a bathroom break at Studio 54. The dashcam stays pointed where it should, but during a stop in a deserted parking lot, there are unmistakable sounds, followed by what seems to be a credit card tapping a hard surface.

The technician’s driving — and giggling — grows more intense as he takes the long, fast way back to the dealership while listening to “Cake by the Ocean.”

When he picked up his vehicle, the owner said he noticed “white powder was left in the seams of my seats.”

Not surprisingly, the video has inspired a lot of commentary. No one condones operating a motor vehicle under the influence, but some point out that Chris’ car might have been too tempting.

As one reddit user opined, this behavior “is highly dependent on how interesting your car is. You could leave your Camry at a shop for a year and it would be fine.”

There’s no word on whether the technician who made it snow in SoCal still has his job, but the vehicle’s owner seems determined to feel the exhilarating rush … of justice.

    Nothing is worse than getting suckered by the click bait and then discover the video removed. Bad TTAC. Bad.

    Never really checked my dash cam after a service appointment.....I'll have to look into that.

    I usually reset the tripmeter which isn't tracking tank miles, along with turning the volume on the stereo down and shutting it off, as well as turning off the climate control. Just keeping them honest. Fortunately, I've only had one car damaged during service: lot puke bumped the wall backing the car into a space. After it took two inspections (and me calling the dealer's body shop manager an "m-fer" to his face, then hauling a$$ out of the parking lot in the dealer loaner, jumping a curb in the process, after I still found dirt in the paint on the second repair attempt), the dealer principal comped me free details as long as I owned the vehicle.
