Surprising my Dad with his Dream Car (75% off MSRP)!!!

Surprising my Dad with his Dream Car (75% off MSRP)!!!


Hey guys ChrisFix here and my dad’s jag has seen better days I am downgrading it from daily driver status to project car status because every time I fix something on this car Something else breaks and it’s just a never-ending chain of working on this car. It’s becoming unreliable It’s been pretty good for the last couple years. It’s been fine hundred thousand miles It’s been running a ok But all of a sudden things are just stacking up on top of each other and there’s a bunch of stuff broken with it So I really need to find something reliable that my dad could daily drive I’m getting sick of working on this car and let me show you what I mean So real quickly I just want to give you an idea of what my dad has been dealing with driving this car recently And the major issues the first one listen to this when I go start her up So first, I don’t know if you could hear hit that starter there’s a bearing in there and the bearing is shot You could hear it just scream when it goes to engage the flywheel The next thing that you probably notice is there is a check engine light on the dash This check engine light is for a bad oxygen sensor. I replaced three of them That’s the last one and the other thing is there’s an evap leak, which is really hard to trace I did trace it and all the smoke was coming out of here. The gas cap now you would think ok Just replace the old gas cap. I did. This is a brand new gas cap And unfortunately, this whole filler neck has to be replaced for whatever reason this is distorted and it’s allowing fumes to come out Which means it won’t pass emissions I did get it to pass emissions by taking a balloon and stretching the balloon over this and then right before I got to the DMV I put the gas cap on and she passed But that’s definitely not the right way to do it And in order to fix that I have to replace the entire filler neck from here all the way to the gas tank So have to drop the tank in order to drop the tank. It’s just a mess. I think you get the idea and Don’t you guys worry, I will make a video on how to make your very own smoke leak detector because they’re expensive to buy and that’s how you find leaks like the evap week and I’m gonna do something that’s Inexpensive to make it’s actually really cool. So stay tuned for that Now the next problem it can take a quick look you can see there’s more lights on the dash And that is an ABS light right there unfortunately, the ABS light is on because of this bed ABS module and I have to replace this but in the meantime My dad’s driving around with this without ABS which he’s like, oh, it’s okay back in the day No cars had an ABS but I like ABS because ABS is definitely very helpful safety feature And that’s not the only safety feature. That isn’t working Another one is the headlights Now you probably Kris the headlights look like they’re both working and they are but watch this you see that projector housing right in there Well when you’re driving along and you hit a bump the projector housing moves around and then if it falls into a spot like this now you have to use your high beams because this is aimed too low and I can’t have my dad driving around with a car like this. You need your headlights and you need them to work perfectly and the sad thing is it’s just these little plastic gears that broke and it’s a design flaw on these Jaguar x-type s– and It happens to basically all of them, but wait, there’s more for whatever reason out of nowhere both rear axles decided to go bad. You can hear them squeaking as the car drives by Not only does this sound bad as you’re driving sometimes the speedometer doesn’t even work out of nowhere just randomly because the speedo works off the ring gears on the axles and then finally the last thing and probably the biggest issue is There is a head gasket leak check this out You can see there’s a head gasket leak because there’s bubbles going into the cooling system and then those bubbles are coming out of the reservoir here and that’s just a telltale sign of a bad head gasket now the head Gasket leak causes my dad to fill up his radiator every couple of days So he needs about one of these every let’s just say five days and those of you that lived the life of a coolant leak or a head gasket leak know you have to keep coolant in your Trunk and unfortunately, we have to keep actual coolant not just water because water will freeze We live in an area where it gets cold so it gets expensive and it’s a hassle My dad shouldn’t be filling up his car with antifreeze every couple of days. That’s just unacceptable So you guys are probably like Chris. Why don’t you fix all this? Why did you let it get this bad? And actually I didn’t let it get this bad It all happened real quickly it all started adding up real fast, which is why my dad needs a new car So today I got my dad a car and he has no clue I cannot wait to surprise him and I just hope no one is cutting onions when that happens now. This isn’t any normal car I got him something that he’s had his eyes on but would never get it’s an all-wheel-drive twin-turbo GT car and after all my dad’s been through to take care of my family all the sacrifice and for the past few years He’s let me take over the garage and take over the driveway with project cars and car parts without even hesitating He’s always supported me and no one is more deserving of this car than him Now one thing I want to do before the reveal is change the color of the car to my dad’s favorite color and I won A free rap last year. So this is the perfect car to do it on. So let’s head over to the rap shop And here she is a barely used perfect condition 2014 Maserati Quattroporte Any time we saw one of these on the road my dad would comment about how nice they look so instead of getting him another Jaguar x-type or something like that? I decided to get him something special So now the cars in good hands and I cannot wait to see the transformation Now as we wait for that car to get wrapped let me tell you guys some of the Economics behind this car and also how I got it for such a great deal Now the first two questions you guys probably have are where did I find it? And how much did I pay for it? So let me show you So I found this car Using auto Tempest and I admittedly spend way too much time on this site looking for new project cars and what I like about it instead of searching Individual car websites it searches all of these websites all with one click so ebay cars.com everything you see there one click It’ll search for it. So if we scroll down you can see I have Maserati Quattroporte for keywords I put all-wheel drive because we want the all-wheel-drive version not the rear wheel drive version 2013 to 2019 Which is the newest generation and then all we have to do is hit search and boom check out all these results It just keeps going and going and going and going and if you take a look at some of these prices You’re probably thinking Chris. You’re out of your mind, but I’m not this is the Chris fix Channel And today I’m gonna show you how to get a hundred and thirty thousand dollar car for less than thirty thousand Check it out. This is the ad for the car that I purchased. He was asking $30,000. I negotiated him down to 26 thousand dollars, but wait it gets better. Here’s the window sticker of the car. I purchased in 2014 this car was a hundred and seven thousand dollars So that means in five years this car depreciated eighty one thousand dollars over 75% of its cost now This is where the economics start making sense Why would you buy a new one when you could buy one a couple years old with forty five thousand miles in? Amazing condition and when I mean amazing condition, I mean amazing condition. This is a pre-purchase inspection from Maserati. I took it there $200 they scan the computer their Tech’s who work on these cars all day long looked at all the common issues that they normally find None of them were wrong. There are new brakes new tires everything checked out. They installed new bulbs so the guy who checked out this car told me that this car is just like a brand new car is an Amazing condition and he said he wouldn’t hesitate to make an offer on it and one last thing right here I just want to show you guys the average price of a brand new car in 2018. It’s $36,000 in 2019. The average price was $37,000 we bought something for more than ten thousand dollars less and my point is you could buy a new car or you could save your money especially on a luxury car wait a few years and you could get a really nice off lease in like-new condition car for 75% off MSRP and you won’t take that huge depreciation hit that’s the smart way to do it and save a ton of money So you don’t need to be rich to buy a Maserati. You just need to be smart about it So hopefully that was insightful for you guys. This website is awesome Thank you Auto tempest for making it and for support in the video if you guys are looking for a used car Go check out the link in the description. I’ll link this website. It’ll make your life so much easier now Let’s get out of here and go pick up. The freshly wrapped Maserati now They’ve had this car for a few days and I cannot wait to see what it looks like after the wrap Time’s running out. The goal is to surprise my dad tomorrow. So let’s see what we get Holy Smokes, what a difference is this even my car. Look at this thing. Oh man, this is Incredible, so here’s a before and after out with the white and in with the blue Wow, this color really pops and you can see all those Italian curves. This car has so much better than with the white I still can’t believe this is the same car dude. You killed it. You killed it. Look at this My dad is gonna love this. This is exactly the blue I envisioned this is like that Corvette blue This is a hundred percent. So perfect Monkey by far for numerals but Upon closer Now this car is beautiful, I’m not gonna bore you with a review of the car But I do want to touch upon some things that make this quadra-port a really nice now I don’t know if it’s proper to call a car handsome, but I’m gonna do it. Anyway, this car is handsome And I’m glad we wrapped it because this blue sets this car off Perfectly and I think you could consider this car an exotic car with only around 2000 made every year and while this Exterior is beautiful to look at let me show you the interior because that’s where it’s at now This is easily the most comfortable car I’ve ever driven It has real Italian leather. None of that fake pleather stuff And it’s important to be comfortable because my dad drives a lot of miles and many hours every week to go to work now one thing I want to show you that you might have noticed the door sills are still white so you could tell it’s a wrap but Don’t worry, that’s gonna change we were running on a tight timeline so they couldn’t wrap the whole thing blue But I’m taking it back and they’re gonna make the whole inside here blue You can’t even tell it’s gonna be a rat it’ll look just like paint so I just want to mention that real quick Let’s go inside. Let me show you the interior now sitting inside of this car is nice. It’s comfortable. It’s modern It has all the technologies that you would expect in a newer car, and it also has some nice Old-school maserati touches like a wood – my dad loves wood trim. And this Tanganyika wood looks amazing now I really like this shifter setup because it has the drive modes all in one easy to get to location right here You can turn your traction control on and off right here You can go into manual mode. So you can manually shift the car with the flappy paddles behind the steering wheel Then you have ice mode which means increased control and efficiency This will increase your fuel economy lower emissions and also give you a little bit more traction Next is my favorite mode the sport mode when you hit that flaps open up in the dual exhaust to make it louder it also increases the boost of The turbo engine and the throttle is more responsive and the transmission shifts quicker giving this car 0 to 60 in under 5 comfortable seconds as well as a quarter mile and just under 13 comfortable and Finally if you want your suspension to be stiffer you press that button to give you better handling But this is a nice comfortable luxury car so we’ll keep that off next thing that’s incredible about this car is the interior is very quiet and that is due in part of This glass right here while this might seem like normal glass. This is actually special glass. Check this out This glass has two panes one on the outside one on the inside and in between it’s sandwiches a laminate and that makes it extra Thick and extra quiet so when the windows are closed the road noise in this is almost non-existent now another thing about this car is how long it is over 17 feet and what that gives you is a real rear seat this Rear seat is huge check this out. And I really mean it. There is a ton of room back here Look at all this room. You can literally spread your legs all the way out and recline You don’t see that on many cars today and with all the compact cars out there. You can barely move your feet in here There’s tons of room you get your climate control. And then one of my favorite features is right here on the door Check this out. You press this button right here. Boom a privacy shade pops up now the Sun isn’t in your face anymore But let’s just say you want to look outside and the sun’s not in your face anymore Boom, press the button the sunshade goes down and that’s such a cool feature that you don’t see on many cars today That’s probably why I really like it. So the interior super nice. I love it now the last thing I want to show you is the trunk so double tap the key and Look at how much room is in here This truck is huge which is good for my dad because he’s always carrying around a lot of stuff for work So I think you get the idea. This is gonna be a million times better than that old broken-down jag My dad’s been driving around he’s gonna love this I cannot wait to give it to him and everything on this car is Perfect Except for one thing and that is it needs an oil change Now an oil change doesn’t sound like much but check this out If you get this done through Maserati, they charge five hundred and fifty dollars to do an oil change now, you’re probably like hey What’s so special about? Why is it five hundred fifty dollars? And I can’t really give you an answer The only thing that’s unique is it takes eight quarts of oil versus the typical five quarts of oil in a normal car So otherwise this is going to be exactly the same as changing the oil and anything else Let’s get under the car and let me show you first There are a few bolts holding in this plastic under tray which helps give the car its Aerodynamics to get 25 miles a gallon with that removed. We have a normal oil drain plug to remove So just unscrew that and that’s such a bad designed to have a cooler line right there it’s gonna get drenched and I’m gonna grab an oil sample to send to the lab to get tested to see the condition of the Oil and get an idea of the overall condition of the engine beautiful So now we can take the old crush washer off the drain bolt and you can see the drain bolt looks really clean That’s a magnet right there, and there’s no big pieces of metal on there It’s not all gunked up, which is a good thing. This thing looks brand new inside then we could take our new crush washer and slide it over our drain bolt and now we can hand tighten this down and Finally snug it down. Don’t over tighten it you just want it snug good next we could get the plastic under tray in place and tighten down all the bolts that hold it in now we need to Remove the oil filter which is located on top of the engine bay right behind the driver’s side air filter, right? there to get to that remove the three clips that hold the air filter box in remove the air filter and let’s vacuum out the leads from inside the air box now we can remove the old oil filter by unscrewing it and Carefully taking it out out with the old and in With the new and now you can just screw the new oil filter in until it’s snug now We can install the air filter and then the air box and let’s add our oil We’re using eight quarts of the recommended 5w, 40 euro full synthetic motor oil. And with that last quart. We are done changing the oil All right. So let’s go start her up. Well back her off the ramp So we’re on level ground Now that oil is getting circulated now, we’ll shut her off and let’s go check the oil dipstick the moment of truth Are we filled to the correct level? Perfect right at the max and there’s nothing to it and there you go Now we have changed the oil in this Maserati saved ourselves 450 dollars and the point of me showing you this is if you could do your own maintenance you could take care of your own Car you could pretty much get anything and be able to fix it or maintain it Don’t let other people scare you away from cars that you really like or you really want. Give it a try It’s totally worth it. Cuz then you’re gonna be driving something that you really enjoy. My dad is gonna love this I’m gonna take this around the block and hide this from my dad He’ll be home in a few minutes and I don’t want him to see this and then we’re gonna Surprise them Alright, so right now I’m parking this car on the other side of the development. So my dad can’t see it My sister’s gonna take this car and drive it up the driveway What’s gonna happen is my dad’s gonna be opening up a gift top of the Mustang He’s gonna be facing the other way and this car is gonna grow up right behind him And I mean, he’ll hear it’s gonna be awesome. I am like so nervous. I’m shaking. I can’t believe the cameras being held steady I like this is the moment. This is it you do this once in your life and this is it right now I am pumped. Here we go. Wish me luck. There’s a gift for you. Keep in my pocket There’s a gift on the back of the Mustang I want you to open Yeah Since you can’t have the real thing right now can’t take out the whole thing I like the way you can open the cards and everything And that’s the real one Now you got a mother and you see the color Ah Yeah, Go Daddy had this in it You gotta just the seats and everything So, what do you think I can’t believe it it’s gorgeous I never sat in anything like this I have to show you all the different features and stuff, but it’s got an awesome infotainment system It has all these different modes over here I mean, it just goes on and on you got your your sunroof that you’re really like So I say how about we close out the video and then let’s go for a ride. Sounds like a good idea How to do everything though, I don’t even know how to shift Don’t worry lovey. It’ll be easy.
