S13's-Why bother with em? I need a reason to bother with factory lemon.

Recommended Posts

It was bog standard, it ran slightly rough for about 150kms. Overheated, was head gasket.

Following 12mths, reciept's totalling over 50k.

Still it never would run for more than 50-100km without something requiring a tow truck and sorting.

That was 2008.

2012 Start again.

7k 6mths.

Less than 100kms and it playing up.

The list of "What hasn't been replaced,refurbished,repaired" is down to maybe 10 things.

No-one wanted it, even when I said take it!!!

 

I'd now let it rot in a paddock for the next 20 years rather than let someone pull the "it's only worth 3k" BS.

 

My rotors have been (some currently) cruel to me over years, especially financially, but I dont care..

 

Is there any true S13 junkies that can justify perservering???

I don't understand how you could spend that much money on it... maybe you should stop buying solid-gold nuts and bolts? Also, hiring hollywood actors to do your work is not the most cost-effective.

 

But seriously, there must be a systematic flaw in what you're doing... either your workmanship or your driving is causing serious problems.

So whats the point of starting this topic, to let everyone know you are stupid enough to spend $50,000 on a car that is only worth $3,000 ???

What the actual f**k? Did you just give the car to some dude down an alley way and not read receipts? How the hell do you fork 50k on an S13? This is seriously mind-blowing and I hope i'm being trolled.

Troll? Must be, like seriously 50K. That much the car would be off its nuts with mods and shit, working like a charm not some CA shit with weird as replacement for hot pipe.
