    isn't it too late to do the "hard breakin" version at 200 miles. i dunno, i'd be a little weary doing the hard breaking- is there some kinda warrenty on it?

    i heard the best way to break it in is to rough on it a little bit.

    this ending was wa, wa , waaaaa. i'm glad you got your car back, but all of us have been following this thread for so long and you just blow everyone off. how was the pickup? how much did you end up paying? WHAT'S THE COMBO? did you look the mechanic in the eye and tell him he was a piece of ****? tell, tell

    Some people are probably wondering if you REALLY got the car back. I know I'm not the only one thinking that. Am I?

    A lot of guys were behind you through this whole long thing. It took a lot of patience for me to even read and follow this whole thread without feeling ****ed at the shop and the mechanic.

    We should get details and pics.

    Yeah, he took it up the ass pretty hard. It's cool you got your car back and all, I just read this thread today, hope you enjoy it. But you have the same problem I used to have. You gotta stand up to yourself more. That was beyond point of sitting down with your dad and saying: "I don't think he's a good friend of yours, treating you like that, and I have waited long enough, it's past time to get my car, and I hope you respect it." On the good side, however, it took a lot of character NOT to flat out shoot this guy (kidding :).) Anyway, with that past you, I really do hope you enjoy your car, it sounds like it will be quite a quick little daily driver. :D Makes me jealous. Good luck to you. :nice:

    That settles it. Whoever lives the closest to this kid will just have to go steal it for a while. lol
    Or if you're really brave you could take YOUR car to that shop and start it all over again.

    Glad you got your car back man!!! :nice:
    I can't believe I just read this entire thread (I can't believe I didn't look at it till now, but after the Amp [Az] thread haven't been in the mood).

    Somebody mentioned the hypothetical costs of a rental this whole time. Not sure if you ended up paying, but based on 70 days @$25/day (which is cheap) ==>$1750 not incl. tax.
    Conclusion: Your dad pays $0, and based on an initial agreement of $1200 the shop owes you $550 :D minimum. Now, obviously this most likely won't be the case, but it's good incentive to get one hell of a discount!
