    Default Arrrgh.....Had to fork out for new tyre.

    Arrrgh..........just got the car and spent 200 bucks on it.

    Firstly i had to get the rear window replaced on the car which was 70 bucks excess on insurance, then i went to go out in the car today and i had a puncture.

    I took the tyre to a local place and it couldnt be repaired due to the puncture being very close to the side wall so then that cost 136 of my precious pounds for a brand new Goodyear Eagle NCT 5.

    normally i wouldnt mind but the trye looked brand new.

    I'd die if I had to buy a new tyre if the old one was like new... mine are around £170-£200 each !! What a waste of money.

    I'm sure you can get insurance on expensive tyres that pays out in the event of unrepairable punctures !!

    Thats 200 "POUNDS" i could have spent on a diesel tuning box or something. Im heading down to Manchester next week so i want to try and get a box on the car for the journey.

    I know the "Caterman" comes recomended so i may get that and see how i get on with the plan to go for something more advanced after xmas.
