Well I'll get straight to the point. Was talking to my dad about the future plans for my car, doing the Z20LET conversion and hoping to keep the car for as long as I could, as it was the first car I've properly modded, fallen in love with.
BUT THEN, the little brother appears in the room and said to my dad "Dad, How much would it be to insure me on Matts (me) car? I want an Astra too!"
So that did it, mum overheard, said to me "DO NOT CHANGE THE ENGINE IN YOUR CAR AS YOU CAN GIVE IT TI YOUR BROTHER ONCE YOU HAVE MONEY FOR A NEW CAR"
Kick in the teeth much? Yup. Dad tried to defend my cause and lust for Modifications but to no avail, looks like i'll have to put up with the 8v powah untill I can afford a Coupe Turbo or Gsi Turbo.
Still VERY annoyed, damn little brothers and the "Hand me down" situation!
