This is why you should never buy a car alone. Always take a level headed mate or family member! Yeah been thereDaverg81 said:I actually bought the car . It was described as immaculate lol. After chatting with him for a while I thought it would be a safe bet, I arranged for my mate to give me a lift down Monday morning but as he was flying today he could only drop me off and run and the seller wasn't free until 9.30 .. The chap said he'd pick me up from McDs if my mate had to leave, cool the cars perfect I thought it's a Teg what could be wrong with it.
The car is far from immaculate it's been re painted and there's still bits of over spray here n there but it's not a bad paint job for most the car lol bumpers dodgy n not fitting perfect and the bonnet is also sitting high (it is the same colour thou ^) the inner arches are missing which makes it look really tatty, the plastic trim either side of the windscreen along with the wind deflectors are missing and I think it needs a track rod end or anti roll bar link on the passenger side I think (knocking over speed bumps and on full lock) I took it for a drive and it preformed really well gear changes are nice Vtec at 4.500 said it was because of the KPRO, it's STUPIDLY loud and I like loud cars but he said that's down to the exhaust being a full amuse titanium system ect.
So anyway I was stuck there thinking well with the mods and for Â£6600 I can deal with the tatty bits and sort it all myself ect no biggy sod it I'll have it I'm dying for a Teg again. get in the car after paying and he tell me the battery's gone in the fob so I've gota use the key to unlock it ect still no biggy. Get home and after visiting a few mates and having them rip it out of me for buying a written off dog it's getting dark ... Turn the lights on n it's like it thought it was a police car one light came on n then off followed by the other intill they gave up and turned off completely lmao.. Quickly tried to get home before it gets dark and and I noticed the engine light flicker ever time it got close to the red line
This morning I thought this exhaust ain't right it sounds dog s#*% so got it on the ramps at a local garage and guess what???? No full system but a nice corroded mid pipe joining the middle box (it is S/S but deffo not titanium apart from the back box).
So yea my mates are loving it at the mo n I'm crapping myself that it hasn't got the other parts that it's supposed to have and its guna blow up lol
