Basically ive been a **** and spent over £1000 on my car in repairs in the past 5 months...when i only bought the car for £675.
My dad said to me that thats the final line. From now on, if a repair needs to be done thats more than £50 to just scrap the car. But he said that if that happens he would probably buy me a 1.7 diesel astra mk4.
For the past 2 years odd, ive been wanting the 1.8 sxi and i'll be able to afford one come this february. However if my car goes tits-up before then, he will buy me the diesel (no way will he get me the 1.8 sxi). He thinks, that me being , having the diesel is better because it will put me off ragging the car and will save me money on fuel. And if i sell the diesel when i can afford the sxi he will see that as insulting and being ungrateful and go absolutely ape.
Luckily he doesnt live with me and since xmas, ive only seen him about once every 3-4 weeks. If i were to buy myself the sxi although he would be unhappy about it, i know he wouldnt say anything because there is no point. Ive got the car....cant do anything about it.
Sigh what do you think i should do? Brave saying to my dad "actually can i have an sxi" or just stick with the diesel or what? Im clueless cos ive been so looking forward to this 1.8sxi and modding it.
