Considering destroying my 3 year old car with a sledge hammer. Only 40k miles on it and it’s the worst I’ve ever owned. I’ve driven it more tenderly than you could believe and it’s on its third transmission. Fucked up as hell. All of my other cars I drove to 300k miles on the original transmission. It isn’t me folks. Pissed off. Somebody calm me down before I pound a small fortune into a pulp.

    WAIT. You can't destroy it. Not until I get there so I can help you. I wanna smash something too. :D

    So once I manage to get over there, then you can smash it. (With me, of course.)

    I'd second what @zlice said, get another new transmission in, and use it as a trade in at a dealership for something reliable.

    Even if it's a stop gap solution, 3 years old and 40k should have a decent resale value still.

    Buy a lambo instead 😊

    @Root true!
    @frodoswaggins is that rockstar developer that management is always talking about. A Lambo is a must!

    What car you got? I've currently got a ford sitting on my drive in pieces and I've got the same feelings towards that

    I hope those trans replacements were under warranty.

    @spongessuck they were but the next one probably won’t be. My BMWs lasted eons, and this is a Subaru. The irony runs deep.

    @Root @heyheni aw shucks guys =) I do think I’m going to buy another old bmw though, had a great experience with them thus far. Then again I don’t want that to change...

    @FrodoSwaggins Civic EP3. Big smile on your face every time you drive it, cheap to run, cheap to fix, and if they break, you just get another one :D

    Don't get the EP2. They're quick enough, but they have the wrong engine (1.6 single cam with the wrong VTEC) and a shitty gearbox.

    They're fun, but I wish I'd got the EP3 now. Whichever guise it's in though, the EP series Civic has a superb chassis.

    Really stable, corners incredibly well, and holds the road beautifully.

    @oudalally I never minded the $$$y repairs on bmws, as long as things lasted as long as I thought they should. Ex. I rebuilt my engine at 200k on my first e39, which imo was a perfectly acceptable time for a rebuild, and I was willing to buy 6000 dollars in parts, whereas 3000 miles is not an acceptable lifetime, and it didn’t matter to me how cheap it was.

    @Michelle you got it! Hopefully I can keep my temper under control though.

    @FrodoSwaggins Awww, the first e39 was a fucking work of art!!!!!!!

    I'd love to get an E36.

    @oudalally haha yeah I have two of them, that’s how much I like em!

    E36 is the best 3 series. Maybe not as pretty as the e46, but better all together.

    Ahh its a street fighter bonus round in real life ^^

    @FrodoSwaggins oh I don’t know about that, I reckon the e36 is a damn fine looking car!!

    That said, I’m old fashioned. My wife’s uncle had an aubergine purple mk1 Capri 3.0 litre in the late 70s.

    Now THAT was a stunning car!!!!
