When one thing goes, expect more to follow. Thats what tends to happen...
Hopefully nothing more will go on you.

Your the one deciding to buy the last 2 things though, you could probably do without for the time being, hehe.
Just kidding with you. A nice sound system especially is enough.
I could probably do without the body kit though.

What car you getting?

It wasn't just the clutch muz, if it hadn't been for the flywheel it'd have cost around 820, they valued the Audi at 7000 [around 14000 new] so that's how come I made such a great deal for the 'A' class Merc, handing over only 500.
In case you're wondering, it's normal that you'd only get around half the value of a car in two years, in a part-exchange.

I actually didn't mean to write bodykit, I meant to write alloys, I've been looking at bodykits all day though because I'm getting one for my mate, so that's probably the reasons.

It's a Zetec Sport, but with some nice 17" OZ alloys, black once, bloody wicked they are.

o right , 800 is prolly still more than i will be spending on my first car
And yeah thats why i am never buying a brand new car cos it looses so much value just by driving it off the forecourt much better off getting like a one previous owner 6-12month old car IMO if you want a new car , obviously my first one is gonna be a lot older than that.
Plus one rep, trying to make that last one into a true square!

Perhaps I should rename this thread "What's the most you've ever paid for repairs" other suggestions please. [I'm serious!]
