at the moment my car is driving me mad.keeps breaking things and every little thing i do to it ****s up.i have got to the point i just don't want it anymore and feel like just px'ing it in for a new car.
its getting to the point aswell where im unsure if its worth the money it cost to run and more importantly to fix.
:sorry:
it may be good by skyline if it carrys on like this and i doubt il have another one aswell!:sorry:

gutted to read this m8
but i understand completely that you get fed up with this situation
has it been like that since you first got her ? as i'd say you got no luck and brought a crappy example whereas many peeps have no or lil probes with theirs
might be worth considering another similar skyline or your chance to get a 32 gtr :)

Sure most of us have moments like this. Just try and step back for a little while, see how much you miss it and then get stuck back into it again :)

the clutch is sliping and the coilpacks started to play up under a lot of heat and loads of little bits need sorting and now the exhaust has started blowing badly.

I've always felt that if you've lost confidence and your heart in the car then its time to say goodbye!

I loved my pulsar but got sick of having to repair it and lost my confidence in it so it had to go!

fix it up with second hand parts...do it on the cheap

i swear the less you spend on your car the happier you will be with it....as soon as you start spending cash on bits that dont work right you just lose interest

at the end of the day its never been any different on any car, the more you change, the worse it gets

anyone who deviates from the original design and gets it right either has one of two things in abundance

knowlege/money (usually the latter)

I'm going through the exact same mate, I was ready for chucking in the towel a couple of months ago but I'm looking at it as a challenge now, she's been a fantastic car to me but the last 3 months it's been one thing after another, going in for slip diff to be rebuilt in a couple of weeks then got to get turbo recon'd.

It took me two weeks to stop crying though

I know what you mean, when my Turbo gave up the ghost, it was the worst feeling in the world. I felt frightend (how hell am I gonna fix this) felt sick (cost) but I never lost faith in the car it still gave its all. I just knuckled down thought through each step. Took alot of time and money, I got there in the end. My Skyline smile is huge. I still get niggling little probs that need to be sorted even now. But it's all part of the experience/ I love it and the car. Keep doing the ploddage mate it'll get sorted in the end. Good Luck fella.

i know i could never go down to a normal car ethier.
one thing i miss aswell is all my mate used to help each other fixing cars and having a laugh with them but they have all stopped it now and have no sort of car mates in my area anymore which is a shame and im just losing the will to go out in the cold to even clean it let alone fix it!
i was looking at a e46 m3 conv today and really liked it but i keep looking at it and thinking that its a nightmare waiting to happen aswell!

pmsl:rofl:

we all feel like that at some point dave

my list of things to replace seems to get bigger every time i drive it, at the moment i'm just burying my head in the sand because i don't now what to replace first:confused:

i've priced up the parts i need and it scares the shite out of me, ideally i should take her off the road this winter but that aint going to happen

just keeep you head up and do a bit at a time forget modding it at the mo and get it running right first

the thing is everything thats gone wrong is a ideal time to replace thewm for a uprated item as if i want much more power i will have to upgrade them anyway.
its not even having someone to fix my car but a bit of encouragement and company whilst freezing your nuts off fixing them heap of junk!
like i said im looking at a nice quite new motor but im worried how much they cost and if they would replace the skyline!
i know the e46 m3's are nice but is it a skyline!
