Soviet Clowncar chronicles

SO yea nothing new here on the RR. If shit breaks (and it will) it will cost a lot... No idea how common it is because the average RR owner dealer services and the 2/3rd owner drives it off a cliff. There is anus puckering when it comes to these, because you're rolling dice. Taking it on a trail+goi...

Very likely... So have you made an appointment to go look at this nasty bitch or what? I sent an email... Trans service on these things is a bitch...

Makes sense. Also how is the golf treating ya? Did you put some miles on it yet? So far, so good. I used VCDS and coded everything up I wanted and I've put about 1,000 miles on it as of this morning. Oddly, I'm on the opposite side of the argument now and actually wonder if I should have gotten the...

I have 0 rugrats about getting the OEM fart pipe for the mini. Based on everything else I have read/seen the aftermarket is just not the same. You don't get the resale from it either... So its a completely sunk cost. OEM shit always sells for almost what you buy it for. Exactly. Other than OEM I've...

Why do I have to :troywax: ? This vehicle is something that I don’t necessarily want to be new because it may got some abuse, be parked out side etc. You don't... but you also seem to want a nice/cool/interesting/great condition vehicle... cheap vehicles are going to be, well, cheap vehicles.

They were high on my list prior, but there is a weird issue where the 06-09 models are plagued with tranny issues and the 10+ are simply enormous. It would be a sort of shitty vehicle for me though, really common, and usually way more tormented than the other options because subPrime customers. 201...

Can you feel it ?
I think I did once or twice. Only on startup but it's subtle.
Gotchya at least drive ability doesn’t seem affected, I can see the aggravation though. It’s too new to throw bs codes over and over with no solution

This engine is in literally millions of cars... I am sure it'll be ok. Also i thought its just a CE not an actual misfire? I think it's a bit of both. If they knew it was strictly software I don't think they'd have gone through the effort of doing the carbon clean and injectors. Can you feel it ?

Seems rather minor to be honest... The accident was just :disgust: Yeah I guess. I'm still not sold on the misfires being a pure software issue though.

I just can't look at it without throwing up a little. I would literally rather buy two Cross trannys than 1 GX for 19k I don't understand, it's just a loaded 4 Runner. But you allow me my Cross-Tranny hatred, I'll look the other way on the GX470. This is the way (hope you get that reference)
