yes, I do deserve that.

I took time into reading what the sticker above me said, and it took a flashlight to understand what it said... about 40,000 overdue... so I'm organising it for either this or next week.

Newer cars = smaller tolerances
Needs to be looked after to make it last.

the car had a full, on time service record when it was a rent a car... going back 2003 - some time.

between it being a rent a car, someone else owned it. I don't know how long... nor the service history.

It's done NOW 180,000... bought it at 144,000 - so for a 2003 car doesn't seem to have had a tough life...

I've been busy Au99... work, uni, work again... and travelling... I'm on a break, and I've just forgotten... oh well, I've got a mechanic that'll spend a day or two doing a 300 dollar job.

That'll probably fix everything, cause he checks everything.

I understand that I stuffed up there, that's my fault... car ran 7.0 seconds last night (f**k if I know how, it just wanted to GO GO GO... make me wonder if anything's been tweaked... should look into it with mechanic) on a straight flat road (with a corner)

if only I can keep that time consistent instead of a massive variable.

It's been booked for next week, so get it all cleaned out and tuned.
