    Fuck auto trader

    I listed a car on cars.com and kept getting people from auto trader calling me.

    Hey Jeff?, do you still have the Audi A4 for sale? oh good! how much are you asking for it? Well I have a special offer for you to list your car at autotrader,.....

    I just listed my car LAST NIGHT why would I pay for a 2nd ad service to list it twice?

    fuckers I hate people who try to sell by using something I PAID FOR.

    so that means auto trader hires people to read cars.com listings as with Im sure any newpaper print and call those people to ask if they want to list their car on auto trader.

    fuck um



    P.S I'd do the 880 but I doubt it goes for anywhere near 1000 bucks. maybe 1500+

    just get another 240sx....slightly built...and call it a day...drive it while the STI is in the shop....and then when next years drift season starts, you'll have something to play with up at Stafford springs. And if you want to sell it...I'll have some tax money coming next year.

    Just remember the fun we all had when we went to BeaveRun....well...that same fun is just 40 minutes away now. Plus I got AAA so no more worrys on broken cars. [​IMG]

    If you're paranoid they've won.

    It's your choice to let them get to you or not. Be the bigger person or be scared.

    Fear can control if you want to.

    Install cameras and an extra battery to run a small computer that's always recording while the car is off... it's something I've been thinking about doing for a LONG time after my car kept getting hit.

    But a FWD stock civic = way more reliable and less noticable than a bright blue STi... And when you finally grow up and realize that there are more important things than cars... you realize that owning an STi isn't the most important thing in the world...

    Not to mention you'll finally realize that owning a bling car is not an extension of one's penis.

    EDIT: Oh yeah... 40mpg civic > 25mpg STi...

    Yeah, if it got 25 mpg I would be excited as hell. Even my Subaru couldn't get 25 mpg if it was in freefall.
