What’s so funny about used luxury vehicles?

Honestly, not much, but with April Fool’s Day right around the corner, this is the perfect time to start planning a few practical jokes.

If you know somebody with a luxury car, or an exotic SUV, you’re at an advantage--these people care about their vehicles a lot, so if there’s even the slightest indication that their vehicle has been messed with, you’ll most likely be treated to an Oscar-worthy meltdown performance.

A Tricky History

April Fool’s Day falls on the first day of April every year, though its exact origins are hard to trace. The first association between foolishness and the first of April was recorded in The Canterbury Tales, published in 1392 by Geoffrey Chaucer.

 As always, April Fool’s Day is meant to be fun, and any pranks you pull should never intentionally hurt anybody or cause damage to property--especially the BMW or AudiHere are the best three pranks to play against a luxury car owner:

Swap the GPS Language

Most luxury and exotic vehicles have GPS capabilities. To pull this one off, you’ll have to gain entry to the vehicle first. Switch the language of the GPS navigation, and if you’re feeling extra annoying, update the local maps to a foreign location. Not only will the driver be confused and potentially lost, but unless they know the language, switching it back to their native tongue will build even more frustration.

There’s Something In the Air (Vent)

This prank is gold because it comes when the driver least expects it. Slip something foul smelling into one of the air vents of your friend's luxury ride and watch the owner of the vehicle go insane looking for the source. It could be anything from a piece of cheese to an empty can of tuna--just be sure that whatever it is gets found before mould creeps in! In the best scenario, the owner will book a service special for some serious auto detailing or keep buying air fresheners to try and overpower the smell.

A Trick To Dye For

This trick is totally harmless but has an outrageous effect on the driver. Purchase some vegetable food dye and shake a few drops into the wiper fluid reservoir. When the windshield wiper blades are activated, surprise them with hot pink, red, or green liquid spraying out right before their eyes! It’s important that you only use a little bit, and stick with food dye, not something that will stain or ruin the paint or glass. With our luck, they’ll speed on down to our Service Department and demand to take a look at the service menu!

These three tricks are sure to get a load of laughs, but the prices you find in our pre-owned vehicle inventory won’t! At Somerville Auto, you can find some of the most affordable luxury vehicles for sale in the GTA! Call us today at 1-(877) 503-5102 or contact us online for more details.
