The so called "reliable car"

Post  luke_mk1 on Tue Jan 25, 2011 9:59 am

Well her it is!

Piece of shit number 4!

http://i35.servimg.com/u/f35/14/15/15/36/16524211.jpg

Its not that bad, but has cost a bomb already!

It decided to stop working all together following a engine management light on Christmas Day, when i was called to the office in Chester!

Coil packs had burnt out
Spark plugs were black
HT leads fucked
Needed new front disks and pads
A new right side front Tyre
Oil was thick

A general mechanical service!

But now it needs a new exhaust and or lamda sensor and a new front right spring after this was pulled out

Does anything ever good happen?


Got a few ideas for it, but all OEM as its a daily to get me to and from Chester 2 weeks of the month every day and Machester two weeks of the month every day!!

Clocked nearly 4K on it since mid December!

So im thinking, TT wheels or Bora wheels
Coilies

Had a blow out the other morning and ended in a ditch no damage other than a buckled alloy, so needed some new ones.
After some search found a set of 16x7 MINT TT wheels with 3 New tyres and 1 worn Wink for £60 collected from Southport.

Heres some pictures.











Tried cleaning it too earlier but the hose was fucking forzen solid! Stupid prick of a dad left water in it :/
Next gonna get some budget coilies and some plates. and leave it OEM Wink

Its not a project though?

Its just the fact had a blow out buckled a wheel needed new ones so these are on it, dont see the point in clogging the project thread up with a car that will have a update every few months and are pointless updates. When money gets speant then ill create one.

And Martian, 600+ miles a week and a frozen hose means i cant be arsed.
