    Got my car back

    Been carless for nearly a month and got it back today.

    Stalled about 6 times... but with practically a brand new engine it feels amazing.

    Just been for a drive on my private airfeild at a few miles an hour above what the government recomand (force) you to do.

    Pulls wonderfully. Ive so missed it. It had my heart beating. Felt like a VXr to me

    Im now debating whether to change or not...

    Wicked man, did you find a new engine to put in or the garage put a new one in for you?

    If it aint broke then why change it! (in your case )

    Well they rebuilt the old engine.

    Skimmed the head, new cam system oil pump waterpump new valves and pistons etc.

    Its only a 1.6 Sport

    Why change it...? I only have Ł200 left to last till I finish college and tax is due at the end of the month, plus finding a job that will pay to keep the car on the road is rather hard atm.

    So instead of droping college im going to sell up and get finance / PCP agreement for a 1.7SXi CDTi Sports Hatch.

    best to sell the car and move on...doesnt look too modded, so you'll get your moneys worth back...besides, a 1.7cdti sxi sports hatch is very nice!
