Angry Always drive before you buy !!!

Well i made the number one mistake and buy a car without a test drive....

when i looked at the car it was raining and there was no insurance on the car at the time.
so had a good look at the car and had the car running.
chap who was selling it as i thought was as honest as he could.

didint tell me the o/s/r caplier was fecked and the front drive shaft needs replacing split boot and intermitant noise when turning..

the gear lever isnt right either. its not as fluid as i should be..doesnt ping back when you let it go in neutrual.

so...2 new rear discs,caliper pads and now a front drive shaft within 2 weeks of ownership..

oh and not forgeting the cracked locking wheelnut socket....

So please take note..dont be a complete muppet like me and get it inspected first like i should of done....rant over..
Currently in mrbigsboy's garage:
megane cup 225,Passat cc
