    I'm sure my car's jinx'd. I drove to scunthorpe 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!!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif )

    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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

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

    MB,

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

    J, if they give you the /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif 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.
