im getting that way about my car again :rolleyes:

with all the recent happenings.. im debating on wether to keep my car or not :unsure:

first of all..

after recently changing droplinks,lower arms,drivers hub.. im still getting a knocking/creaking noise coming from the front end..

i know you guys said change arb bushes.. and my mechanic thinks its either an extended subframe.. or play in PS rack.. :unsure:

i need new brake pads on front,and a new drivers door (rust worm :rolleyes: )

and ive just had tracking done today and it still feels twitchy when applying brake or accelerating and slightly pulls to left

so i dont really be wanting to plough money into it.. but i need to as i need the car on daily basis.

 

ive contemplated selling up,but the way it is atm even with all mods... it can only be worth £500-6/700??

so to get a decent price id have to repair it :( (thinking around £800??)

i could break it but i havent got the time or patience with it atm

and breaking would fetch me 3-400??

 

im looking at newer cars (but dont really wanna drop below a 1.8 as ive got used to the power now :D ) IE mk2 (st shape) focus' but i could only afford one on HP.. :glare: (as theyre the only shape focus i like)

or mondeo st24s,but the insurance may cripple me (£364 FC on my escort compared to a 2.5 v6)

and im not overly keen on the length/size of them..

theres no other newer cars i like tbh.. and i want to try differnt makes.. but not sure whats good for realiability without high repair costs/parts cost..

im im really a ford man at heart :D

was thinking rs escort (as im after a 3dr) or gti.. but theyre escorts again and will have the same problems

(and my luck aint exactly been brilliant with escorts! :rolleyes:)

i would buy the likes of richie si's escort.. (as its been looked after etc) but its the price and i cant really buy nothing without selling mine

catch 22 swings and roundabouts :rolleyes: :roll:

 

anyways thats my rant over with :pancake:

what are you guys thoughts???

cant deny that one mate :D :thumb:

just outta interest... whats your price???

 

Dunno tbh mate. Its hard to put a price on something you love so much, because personally i think its fricking awesome and one of the best looking Escorts but im biased haha. If i could have two cars, i'd keep it...
