As others have said, it isnt a good start calling the dealers w*nkers. If they did something wrong previously, then you should have complained and let them rectify it. If they still arn't 'upto the job' then try another Fiat dealership.

there are no other dealership near to me.
i did complain.
and they didnt sort it out
they made it worse
then they fixed it
then they broke it again.

Dude, all you managed to do is claim the car broke by itself, yet said in another thread you wanted more power, by which logic would suggest that you've probably ragged the gearbox, miscall the dealers, and then gave the old 'I only asked for help' at the end' crap, when the answer was staring at you in the face!

the My car My choice bit nearly made me spit my coffee out!

re: Broke my driveshaft???

well i guess it will get sorted one way or another.
im just highly P***ed off at the moment.
because its been one of those weeks.
when you cant even go to work because your knee operation didnt go as planned. and this will be the 5th week you wer supposed to go back to work and you didn't.

ever had that feeling that anything you have done/ going to have done/have to do yourself, just goes tits up?

If you've just had a knee operation, so serious that you cannot return to work for 5 weeks - then should you have been driving the car?

Oh, and the knee operation didnt go as planned either. So, are the surgeons w*nkers too?

Yeah everyday bud, but I don't come on the Fiatforum to get sympathy, I come on for the conversation and to see what is happening with other peoples projects, not expecting people to come on and feel sorry for me, maybe the samaritions would be a better website mate!

the My car My choice bit nearly made me spit my coffee out!


have you read anything i wrote?
i dont like to thrash my car.
i want more power yes.
is that a problem? am i not allowed to want to have more power.
or to try and have a project where i can get more power and learn from the process of how to go about it?

yes yes that excatly what i did.

i asked for my car to be broken when it went to have some work done on it.
im saying they are totally useless at all.
im just saying im not personally happy with it!
im some little chav that goes racing around the streets at night and trys to race other cars to make myself feel like the big man.

im sorry if i want a power increase so that when i put my foot down and there is power there i can think that i had something to do with the fact that i could think mmm i made this a bit quicker. i had something to do with that.
no?
well thats fine then isn't it.
i know im not one of the regular posters but i think some of you have got me serouisly mixed up?

re: Broke my driveshaft???

Clemo...maybe a bit more tact was required in your opening post

as for collecting the car...unlikely as most dont operated a tow truck due to the expense, the onus is on you to get car to the w*ners...errr I mean dealership.

An aprentice & you got a 6k car....i'm jealous! I had a MZ TS150 at that age (for those of you that dont know thats a very cheap badly made eastern bloc motorbike with a square fuel tank that you crushed your nuts on everytime you braked hard...thats assuming you didn't fall off due to the non-grip tyres)

re: Broke my driveshaft???

not im not im just telling you because your all complaing it!
and yes i can drive.
i didnt come on here to get sympathy.
i came here to ask about my car like the forum should be used but you lot and your little circles that dont want to help any new members out, turned this into an argument.
im sorry but i dont know much about cars, and thats why i came on her to learn.
i dont want F***ing sympathy. i just want to learn more about the problems i have with my car! and to see what everyone else is doing to theirs!

Forgive me Clemo, but out of all the mumbo-jumbo you just spouted......the above phrase just kinda "Jumped out at me"

Thats classic sig` material, and I dont have one......yet

re: Broke my driveshaft???

yeah, I did actually, but I'm not too sure you've read mine properly, so lets recap!

your car broke itself, and you wanted more power, but in order for you wanting more power you must have pushed the car to realise that!

you called the dealers w~~kers, yet not sure if they are on this site, so probably won't be anymore helpful towards you!

where in my post did i call you a chav? do you drive a corsa?

you then went for the sympathy post, where I gave you more friendly advice by pointing you towards the samaritans!

some folk are never happy eh?
