My Demo of new power meter
Short Demo Video while I render out most of the tutorial overnight. It will still be a couple of days before I post them as I need more footage related to the strain gauge installation.

Leaving the country and car is for sale when someone decided a parking lot short cut would be fine and ripped my front fascia off the car in the process. Early estimates said end of the month. Nobody actually expects someone to help you out when they are booked up but they completed the repairs in about 2.5 weeks from the day I dropped it off to getting it back. That might seem long but I've ordered parts for this car before and a week+ is common just to get the parts. The list of plastic parts, paint matching, prepping work combined with wheel balancing, alignment etc. Was it expensive, yes, but when you're talking about a 30k car that you need to sell then it's best to have it done right, quickly, professionally. Worked very well with intact insurance and was honestly the smoothest situation I've seen. No hoops or jumps. The work looks very good. The documentation is very professional. I think they believe in the highest quality standards of work and getting peoples cars back out there for them.

They know their stuff and are able to work with you to sort out several options for painting panels, some blending if needed, etc.

I returned my 2011 Impreza lease here and leased a new 2015 WRX. In the compliment sandwich method: 1) Centaur Subaru was fair and didn't tack on false fee's. (EG: By comparison Calgary Subaru quoted me a 700 dollar financing fee for a lease, madatory fees for installation of floor mats (that come standard) and more). Centaur Subaru actually laughed when I told them about the 2000 dollars in Fees another dealership was charging. 2) The return lease process was not communicated well and seemed to assume additional transportation. 3) Pricing, Sales service, etc was great. I didn't have to fight for anything and one of the people knew I could extend my old lease to the pick up date of the new vehicle. The longer version is that I was very disappointed in the new Impreza from the performance standpoint and current availability at the time I was aiming to lease a new vehicle. Base models were not aviailable and I'd be paying 60 dollars a month more for less horsepower and a few pointless features. I tried investigating options and while it was a stretch the new WRX almost met the bill -- except two points. Not a hatchback and not available. I reluctantly agreed on a 2014 impreza 2.0 but after some mulling it over I decided to see what else was around compared to the availability centaur quoted. Calgary said they could have the car in 2 weeks. I met with them and they said as early as two weeks and said I could extend my lease for short periods up to about 10 days. Then 2 became as long as 4 weeks or a month, but they have better "pull" than Centaur. Eventually I talked pricing and it was 70 dollars a month higher than what was quoted online. The sales person went over it and it was all BS. Frankly, Calgary Subaru straight up lied to me about a lot and lied about availability having found out they really had no way of getting my car sooner than Centaur. It eventually took 3 months to get the car. When it arrived it was almost like they kept forgetting that I had to return my lease. We arranged for me to come in a morning before work to have it inspected which turned into confusion and waiting for over an hour. A different Business manager didn't know anything about it, thought I wanted to return it there, then finally understood. I want to know if there would be issues returning it. Well eventually he did a walk around and said there shouldn't be a problem especially since I have wear pass on the car. Nothing out of place. The morning I was to pick up the WRX again there was confusion that I hadn't already returned the car and panic was ensuing in trying to sort that out. They do very well at sorting, but not the planning on lease returns. They do better on the sales planning as that was like three signatures and voila, here's your car. Overall it was a positive experience. The best and most honest in Calgary rating well above Calgary Subaru. I've had better Subaru experiences throughout Canada as I've dealt with three different dealships in two other provinces, but it's where I'd go to in the Calgary area. No lies, no BS, no fees, nice service, the sales guys know the cars -- though a BRZ isn't that different than an FR-S except for spring rates in the rear and creature comforts, but they did try and argue that point.

Quoted on a GTI that was several thousand more than the online price. "mandatory fees". They are also known to tell people to come in for service way way way too early compared to the VW Canada Warranty interval and also lie to customers that if they don't (do what the local dealership says) that they won't honour your warranty. It was a total WTF. Lies. Mandatory fees that aren't online. Lame "high pressure tactics". I gave up on VW as the GTI couldn't compare to the WRX and it felt as bad as an experience I got at Calgary Subaru. At lease there are options in this city. Try someone who doesn't lie to you.

An oil change would be a little more expensive at the dealer, but they did fluid top ups, checked the differential fluids which are improbable to get to without a lift, and did a hand car wash. For the price, and the addition of the documentation, I've been very comfortable with this. I had been going to the Mississauga dealership for regular maintenance due to regular trips to Toronto. However, after they damaged a piston seal on a brake caliper doing the very expensive "inspect brakes" maintenance, I decided to try Gemini. Emily is the happiest and most helpful service coordinator who shows a great interest in her customers, is very engaging, and generally concerned. I thought I had a major bearing issue, she was able to get me in quickly, test it, and ended up being a simple rebalancing. She stressed to let them know if I had any issues at all. She went out of her way to squeeze an oil change in just after major snow storm and power outages so that I wouldn't have to have one done on the road during a 3500 relocation drive. Their service side is great.
