bought a beaut of a gsi a month ago.

red, lowered with speedlines etc.

got 2 new tires for them, 100

first of all the timing goes off...turns out one of the pullys wasnt tightened (coulda been nasty)

then the driveshaft snapped., 150 for a new one....then broke a ball joint putting the new drive shaft on.

now last night, the drivers window fell of the rail, had to take the doorcard of and yank it back into place, then a few hrs later i hear tapping....huge screw...size of a 20p in one of the new tires!!!!! 50 for new tire :-(

gutted, then stopped outside my mates...snapped the handbrake cable!!!

so then i started limping the car home, and got stopped by the police, who were doing a check on the car and making sure i wasnt drinking etc, they we're exactly the nicest of policemen either.

ne1 else having trouble with they're cars *sigh*
