Nice one, Dan
I bought my spider with no MOT, front end exhaust blowing and other issues! Took the risk as the moment I saw her I knew I was buying her whatever.
Had four months now, got exhaust, new tyre and MOT'ed her. Since then I've had a drive shaft, set of wheels as two buckled, power steering hose, water leak (new hose) and a couple of other niggles.
Now either a battery or a relay causing my immobiliser to play up.
It cuts in and won't start for the second time in two days.
My mate was with me and after the trouble it's been and cost he told me I should get rid of it.He went on about how he would be taking a hammer to a car that had been that much grief.
While still going on, he looked at me and saw me smiling. "Why are you smiling?" he asks. "Why ain't you getting angry cause you cars fecked up again?
I don't exactly know why but I just smiled more and said "Cause there's only one thing wrong with her and thats the best she's been in a while."
Got a mate to pick us up and told them both she'll start first time when we went back later after the football, at which they laughed!
Went back, first turn and I'm away!
I know my "Bella"
I know she has been trouble. I know she ain't worked out as cheap as I bought her. But, she makes me smile and look in disbelief, that I own such a beautiful car every time I see her!
I just feel lucky and the rest, just doesn't matter!
Anyway will be sorted out this weekend!
