    I thought my car was in really good condition, but then i see every other civic of the same year and they look brand new still. :< Why did my car have to live in New Orleans/Birmingham Alabama it's who life? It runs great though, and the interior is like 9/10, so i can't complain. Also, it's free to me, because i'm lucky to have parents like that so i doubly can't complain. I'm very fortunate.

    It's been rear-ended decently hard, and keyed in several places. I also think a shopping cart hit it in the back because there is a new scuff from no where. I feel like there is a new scuff every day.
    Ever notice the people like me who park in the back of the lot, next to a curb, all by themselves?

    That's why. My daily is a 05 Silverado and its just about as good looking as the day it came off the lot new. I cant say the same about all my cars but If you are proactive and a little patient you can prevent those mystery scratches.

    Well it was 7:30 am and i was the only one parked in that section of the parking lot. I just don't get it. The only place i go to is the gas station, and home. I feel like a lot of these marks were there and i just didn't notice them.

    Then again you cant always be there to protect your ride. I came out of whitetrashmart to find this and shit three bricks instantly.



    There was a cart return to my back in that picture, I can't stand people who do that crap. I get crazy looks sometimes in parking lots because if I see someone leave a cart next to a car I have to put it up. It pains me to see those things happen.

    I always park as far away as everybody as possible. Even if it's cold, raining, snowing, blizzarding, I'll go far out of my way to protect my car from scratches

    I always park in corner spots, and if I can't park there, I park in an area where there's at least 3 open parking spots between me and the nearest occupied spots.

    I always try to park where it's the easiest to leave, I hate getting stuck because of dummies who likes to block everything up.

    On a side note, DAMN passing a week in the forest and doing 30km on feet in snow, sleeping in a tent and eating stuff slowly cooked on a fireplace, in the tent, is long and cold. But fun, when I came back, my car started no problem, even though it went as cold as -28C without the winds. Now imagine me, in the tent, dealing with that temperature, even with the fireplace, it was still cold as fuck.

    Speaking of parking. I parked next to this toyota tacoma or whatever the fuck, some fake-ass japanese truck. Anyway, I parked next to him, and the vibrations caused by my truck's exhaust made his alarm go off.

    Learned today you don't go 60mph in a low laying area when it has recently rained.
    Silly Audi just kept going straight like it has a rudder or some other magical device.

    Should have seen the "Box" my brake pads came in, I don't think it even qualified as a "Box" anymore.

    That is terrible. I hope it wasn't anything fragile D:

    I just hooked the new radio to a 12V test supply, screen is so pretty with its 35,000 colour chocies, I'll be at it all day getting it to perfectly match the dash colour :p

    The above was from Google, however I did order a small engine once that arrived looking like it had been drug behind the truck with corners of cast aluminum ground away from the gear case.

    I feel sorry for you guys.

    I've literally never had a damaged package.
    Even my 23 inch monitor arrived safely.


    They're always wrapped in packing peanuts that fly all over the place one you cut into the box.

    So I think I've finally found my car! I've decided on a 2005 1.2 Volkswagen Polo (3 Door). Insurance is £1447 under my dads. Done some digging into the car, and found out it was Category C write off. Going to test drive it next week.


    (This colour and model)

    Fingers crossed!

    I looked Category C up.

    Category C: Vehicle extensively damaged and insurer has decided not to repair. The vehicle should have an independent inspection before being allowed back onto the road.
    If it has frame damage, don't get it. It will never go back to normal. Not to mention the safety in the event of a wreck.

    Yeah- I'm aware of the the problems of a category C write off, my dad's friend is mechanic and he's going to have him go over the car, I'd rather take loads of precautions and find that there is something wrong sooner rather than later.

    My last setup in the civic topped 2nd gear at 80 mph, top of 3rd was 130 iirc.

    Early shakedown run on ~8 psi, something like a 35 roll to 140


    No video but on 18 psi the thing barely kept traction going downhill.

    Cat. C? Wouldn't touch it. The car was once a wreck! I'd imagine various parts of the car have been damaged due to extreme stress from the impact. Seat belt, steering column, sensitive electronics etc...

    Also, as many have previously said, there is the safety issue. That car would never re-achieve a four star NCAP rating and driving a car with knackered frame from the last crash means that frame will not be able to take another impact so well. You could instead be driving a 2 star car...

    Found some old memory card earlier today and it had pictures from when I was at the Nürburgring in 2008 on it.
    Ah... the memories. I just uploaded all the pics, so there are a lot of shitty ones, you can see them here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/3684197...7629175676243/

    A few of the not so shitty ones:












    Look at that widebody kit!





    And a video of my dad's lap around the track, this was on winter tires and it was his first lap on a racetrack ever, so nothing special.
