    However, welcome aboard. I'm impressed with your mighty, er I mean, steaming pile of junk!
    It is a steaming pile of junk but I it obviously can be to bad I haven’t spent that much money beside replacing broken cheap interior crap. 5 wheel bearings almost 6. 16 sets of front pads 3 sets of rotors and over the top maintenance. Thank you for the warm welcome ��

    I don't know if you've discovered it yet, but one of our more prolific members here maintains a fleet of these little turd pails used as delivery cars.

    That's an aggressive preventive maintenance schedule for the rubber band transmission. Keep us posted!
    I have not but now I’m intrigued, I took the most of the interior out of mind back seats headliner, almost like a mini mini cargo van ha. Aggressive yes absolutely but it keeps my mind at ease and just seems to be working so I’m sticking to it.

    Jesus. 16x brake pads? So about every 30k miles? I dealt with a bad wheel bearing but not 5. 5 ain't normal even with 255k miles right?

    Lots a braking so they don’t last because they are small. I don’t know why I’ve had an issue with wheel bearings on this car, I think it has to do with cheap eBay parts because I’m cheap.

    Do you do courier work with yours? I can't wrap my head around the brake pads... I got 110k out of my OE set...
