Default Lexus Dealer takes a joyride in my ISF... Dashcam ;)

So for any future car porters.. might wanna make sure the car you are hooning in doesnt have a dashcam to capture your stupidity. I uploaded the clips to youtube, they are 1080p so quality is pretty good - The guy had TSC kick in under a minute, pretty much the first spot he can punch it he does. Needless to say I will be having a chat with them tomorrow. The lesson here.. dashcams for everyone Details on my dash cam are in the thread (FYI).

** Edit **

I went ahead and removed the videso (out of good faith). I spoke with management from the dealer this morning. They were equally unhappy with the video and I believe they will take appropriate action. They've asked to use the video to train other porters, which I think should make them aware that customers are watching - and should prevent a similar incident for other customers. Regardless of what kind of vehicle we have we all expect professional service - especially when its an ISF.

I really want to watch the clips but my laptop can't open them. Do you have them in any other format?

Sorry for the format issue - its raw 1080p. I'm uploading to youtube for easier viewing. VLC will play them if you want to watch them sooner.

Agreed - The guy had TCS chiming in under a minute after getting in the car. looks like another porter was at QT as well, you can hear them reving the GS350 as well.

Mine is a Lukas 7900 (1080p with gps). Its a fairly small camera - I have it hidden behind the rearview - its viewable from the front of the car but you can't see it if you are driving. The cam has a both driving and parking modes (will record while the car is off too - storing 30 second events - motion and gforce). Its pretty slick and obviously captures this kind of stuff as well as clears up and stories during traffic incidents.

I found the best prices on ebay - I bought the package deal from this seller. Includes the auto cutoff switch (disconnects the cam after a programmable amount of time), also includes a CPL filter to help with glass reflection, and the cam (obviously). I have a 64GB Sony SD Card - the cam supports up to 128GB cards. That seller comes from korea - i kid you not, 2 day delivery for free. In case anyone was worried about delivery time from Korea.

Just watched the videos...this guy is such boob! At first I was thinking this isn't so bad but it just got worse and worse. "this thing is stock", "its got a turbo" what a moron. At least he was nice enough to leave a dna sample in the car for you at the end. Id be pissed and sad at the same time
