    Had enough of your S3 causing you problems?

    Fed up of spending a fortune at the stealers on thing that they get a small child to make for 5 pence?

    Want to drive a nice cheap run around which just works?

    Then this is the post for you....

    Simple solution. Take it to the nearest abandoned area and BURN IT! :banghead:

    Me and the S3 not best friends today. :(

    lmao dude, things not going well today then? pray explain!

    i too would also be up for a mass burning, owning an s3 is worse than having a missus, s3 does more moaning and complaining and as random said if you speak nastily about her, even when not around her she some how hears you and fucks you over even more:slapped: haha

    only one thing you can do bert, keep on trucking..... :salute:

    OK.... allow me to explain....

    Went out last night for my work's do. I drew the short straw and drove. Now I only work for a small company so my boss fronts up the cash for all of us.

    Drove up, and car was having a bit of a misfire (not coils or plugs - suspect batch of fuel - from the same place as I had dogy fuel last time). We went bowling. Had fun. Two trips from the bowling alley to TGI Fridays to transport 6 of us.

    First trip - lovely. Second trip I put windows down to have a smoke in traffic at some lights... Go to put windows up and the passenger one wouldn't go up. 100% stuck. Got out and buggered about with it, slammed door, couldn't get to the windows as it was fully down. Arse. Drove with other two back to TGIs (freezing cold since it was -2).

    Then had to go home - wouldn't leave the car with the window stuck down obviously. Bummer, missed out on my free fat steak. Not happy. Drive home flat out in a rage feeling hungry as had been saving myself all day for free fat steak.

    Get home at 10 PM. -3 degrees. Take door card off - pain in the arse having not done it before, in the dark and hands hardly working due to the cold - took an hour. Try window. It immediately goes right up and closes. I believe my words were, and I quote 'You've got to be f*cking sh*tting me!' No problems, no obvious cause of failure. Even less happy.

    Grease windows sliders, reassemble. Accidentally break pull out cubby thing. Spend 30 mins fixing that - hypothermic at this point. Getting really pissy.

    1 AM I get to bed. Have an argument with the missus about how cold my feet are and how long I'd been outside. Sleep on sofa. Really angry.

    Get up this morning, go to work and hear about how good the food was! :(

    I've had better days.

    I've had days like this because of sodding cars, feel your pain! :sadlike: The only difference would have been I'd have left the b*****d outside open window or not...when there's a free steak involved :yum:

    If you're all going to burn out your 8L's can I have one? :whistle2:

    I would of done, but it was snowing and the interior was getting drenched! I asked TGIs if they had something I could cover it with (such as a plastic table cloth like they have about a million of).

    They said no.:(

    No, it only started working when the card was off. I put it down to the cold to be honest. But I was not happy at the time!

    I'm sure that 7 year warranty would have come in handy when poor Welly was freezing his rollox off sitting outside TGI's with his workmates munching away on juicy steak! :sob:

    You mean you get chicks rubbing themselves on your S3? Dude, I want your car! LOL

    In all honesty, it does look smashing! I would have to resist rubbing myself against it.

    You are probably right, it's such a bad habit. I gave up for 2 years and then decided that stress levels were too high!! Giving up again on the 1st....

    I WISH I'd thought of that at the time....

    Why the hell not?

    Only the ones that I run over.... :(. Plus I've heard that lady garden juice is very difficult to get off of paintwork. Autoglym Intensive Tar Remover won't shift it :(

    Smoking in your car is a crime, using the ash tray is a hangable offence...

    However, I have NEVER EVER used the ashtray or lighter. Ever. Nor will I ever. Windows are always fully open on the occasion I do smoke in it.
