Yes, i hate cars at times!

Did it go? no, so im back to the drawing board again with it. the problem is that after getting the golf back on the road i'm enjoying it again.

I'm at a point where i need to decide, which is more fun and with the fiesta being n/a i can only take it so far even with t/bs whereas i'd say the golf is making about the same amount of power with just a generic chip, it has more grip due to the wider tyres and coilovers. plus it's a better everyday car. But the fiesta was one of them cars you couldnt help but grin when you drove it.

I have a fabia vrs and still have my fiesta. I know I can get a lot more power with my fabia much easier than I can with the fiesta (and cheaper). But I would never do that because it just doesn't seem right! The fabia is my daily, that's the end of it! make the right choice!

Right im keeping the bloody thing! :lol:

If anyone was reading i was thinking about selling this and the golf and getting an st... well i went to look at an st and it was great but the guy who was meant to be buying this is tied up with his 20vt fabia project at the moment and we both decided it would be best if i didnt sell it to him :thumbsup:

So i can at least now honestly say ive tried to sell it but i couldn't so i'll have to keep it.... which means stripping it back down and rebuilding it properly.
