Here comes the costs...

So, after helping babysit last night, I was driving home and my tachometer spazzed the fuck out, flicking everywhere and I lost acceleration. Pulled over to the side of the road to see what was going, sat there for like 15mins then it was fine again.

Took it to the garage this morning as coincedentally, its Warrant of Fitness was due today. Failed its warrant Dx Needs two new tires + a wheelbearing. There goes the thick end of $300, for people who don't have contacts ;D Managed to get 2 free tires, brand new from my Dad, he was working at a mag shop for a while and they were stock that never got picked up, so I scored them for free. Also got my mate at auto-store to get me the wheel bearing for 50% off, mint! Helps that my brother in law is a mechanic too, free fitting:D

I never regret getting a car, they make life so much easier, just make your wallet a little bit lighter too. Even though its shitty (90' Mitsi Lancer) I still <3 it. What do you guys drive?

  1. Owned one car, but then life got tough so I had to sell it. Thinking about getting a good looking used BMW soon though.

  5. Although owning a car in NZ can be relatively cheap, any car is still expensive as hell
