My Ride: 318i
| Today is a very sad day for me... i have made a hard decision to sell my car, possibly to a breakers yard for parts.
After weighing up the costs of fixing it to a state where she would pass the car test, I realised it was not worth putting the money into it.
2 days ago I bought an Audi A4 1.6l 1997 for €300, and it works, and €300 more and she will pass the car test with flying colors.
My plan now is to get the Audi taxed and tested, save up a few quid, and in the new year sell the audi for a lot more than i paid for it, put that towards the money I save and buy another 318i that actually works!
I will still be a BMW owner at heart, driving an Audi is nice, but its no BMW! so I cant wait to be able to get my next one... but this time I will make sure the car is taxed and tested BEFORE I buy it!
These are the last photos I will ever take of my baby...
