im afraid any old car wont be a bargain no matter what the price, as over the next few years you'll find how much of your money it has sucked from you, especially if you take pride in your car and want it looking and running well

the amount of coin ive spent on my car on little and big things, couldve went to a BF xr6t :(



True very F*n true
