    pedal box mounting has snapped, clutch cable is starting to go, clutch is slipping (unsure if its just cos of the cable) engine has just started tapping on tick over even when warm, both electric mirrors arent working, offside rear wheel locked up when i had to slam brakes on to avoid :censored: taxi, strong smell of burning oil coming from engine bay but no visible leaks. and all this happened today!! :cry:

    i dunno what to do with it!! [:@]

    if i did insurance job id by paying 500 quid young driver excess plus 400 compulsory excess :( and i would only ever have another one in kiwi but can only find one and it wud cost more than reparing this one to mint.

    i was really considering breaking it last night, but this morning, drove to work and it was too much fun! already spent ~300 on alarm, headlight, indicator, doors.

    something is keeping me going on this project. must be the fun of driving it.

    also the clutch seems perfect this morning, apart from being a little tricky putting it in second gear but thats only happened once so far.

    burning oil is coming from breather pipe (corroded - 15 quid new)
    rear discs and pads - 40 quid
    front pads - 20 quid
    clutch cable (for when it goes, cos we all know it will!!) 20 quid
    dipstick - 5 quid
    total - nice round 100 :)

    that would make it perfectly drivable

    to make it back to mint:
    front grill - 20 quid
    front bumper - 40 to 50 (either mk2 or mk3)
    wings - 40 quid each
    bonnet - upto 100 (mk2 about tenner :D )
    slam panel - 70 - 100 quid
    rear arches repaired - 160 quid
    total - upto 470 (excluding painting bonnet. wings and bumper)

    best thing to do is put up with it until I'm ready to sell you mine. Had my Kiwi Cupra since new, spent loads on it to keep it running nice. Trouble is, I'm nowhere near ready to sell it, no matter what the missus says....
