    I must be jinxed

    I'm sure my car's jinx'd. I drove to s****horpe to see my sister and niece and managed to get a cracked windscreen.

    The next weekend I break an inner CV joint and I am without my car for 3 weeks.

    Last night whilst out looking at a new house I manage to pick up a puncture in one of my rear tyres (not the knackered front ones!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] )

    At this rate my car's going to bankrupt me before long.... And I thought it would be cheaper to run than my r32, what a fool.

    On the plus side at least I have it back for my track day tomorrow at goodwood [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Unlucky MB, she does sound jinxed. But maybe a good thrasing round the track will make her behave. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    MB,

    Sorry to hear, cause the tyre thing got me exactly the same, which is a b*mmer when we're on maintenance plan.

    Mines gone through 2 tyres in 4000 miles, one punture and on Wed, hit a brick and buggered the side wall.

    J, if they give you the [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif[/img] about not being repairable go to Flintstone tyres on the Botley road (just before Swanwick station) and they'll work they're magic for about 18.
