    as some of you may know i have recently spent an absolute fortune on my car getting forged internals with a new engine etc etc..

    but someone up there doesn't want me to own an S3! because unfortunately for me i've been made redundant.. now where as im sure it wont take too long for me to get another job, and ive still got a few weeks pay, its not going to be enough to run this beast let alone now fix it!

    was driving down the road earlier down to the shops got not too far from my house and heard a loud rattle... was going to take it to RER developments to get it looked at anyway to make sure they were happy with it bedding in

    got the boss from RER to come down in his van and take a look.. he crawled under had a look.. had the car up, was out there checking it over for about half hour-ish, engine wise everything seems to have run in perfectly.. he diagnosed that the dual mass flywheel was stuffed and would need a new clutch + box fitted

    :(

    so this brings me to where i'm at now...

    New prices are as follows with NO offers!

    4.5k takes the car as it is if you think you can get the job done cheaper or wish to do it yourself
    5.5k takes the car fully fixed with new box, flywheel clutch etc etc...

    but i guess that at least means that now EVERYTHING has been replaced!!!

    the ad can be found here:
