10001 Excuses for going to the Garage...
This thread was born out of viper's call to arms on the Q Car Thread (The 'Q' Car...) & the fact that many of us have to sneak out & make excuses to get to the garage.
Here's viper's quote on it:
To make this easy, I'll post the format so that it'll be easier for the others to follow & post their own. Hopefully, we'll never run out of great, plausible excuses to give. However, if that happens, I got a dirty feeling that most of us won't give a damn & shall go anyways!
The format is quite simple.
1. 'Directed towards' is the person you'll be giving the excuse to.
It could be your mom, your wife, your dad, your boss, your girlfriend, whatever.
2. 'Scenario' covers the situation you're in.
For example, need to leave work & cancel a client meeting in the middle of the afternoon because you've just discovered on the forum that Sam's giving away JBL branded rotting egg scented car fresheners to the first 25 people who walk into his store.
3. 'What to say' should be in the first person singular to avoid any morons directly quoting from the site.
'My grandmom's in hospital' would be a good idea. However, telling your boss 'Your grandmom's in hospital' may not be so good.
What to say:
Mods: This thread's been placed in the Modifications & Accessories forum because it can serve as a ready reckoner for people who read the various threads here & immediately rush out to their garages / tuners / ICE installers. Apologies if required - please move it into the appropriate section if incorrectly placed.

Mods needed - you have the money (surprisingly), but you'll have to spend a week away from home.
What to say:
'Baby, my girlfriend wants me to go with her for the next 7 days to Khajuraho, to check out & see if some of the sculptures there are humanly possible. I have to leave right now, flight's in an hour.'

About 65k needed for new ICE installation.
What to say:
'Ma, don't get scared but I went to this ENT specialist, Dr. Gunbir that day because I had a problem with sounds. He said that I've got really sensitive hearing & that if I listen to the current setup in my car I'll go deaf in about 3 months. However, he has a major operation planned to provide a mid-term solution for it & it's going to cost 65k.'

Okay, hilarious ones so far but I'm gonna start getting serious....
The parent and/or any other family members who are concerned
Quietly escalating engine work that will include the works - porting,polishing,milling,grooving, and free-flow headers. Possible ECU upgrade AFTER that....
What I've said:
I'm getting a mechanic friend to tweak the engine for improved mileage! Which is true, to quite an extent.....
