talk about bad luck

so in the past month or so i had a run of bad luck with my car.
first my shocks blow. i knew that was gunna happen cause i have a 2" drop on OEM shocks.
then i curb my brand new rims.
then i get tar on my car and brand new rims. not just any tar. SUPER tar no matter what i use it wont come off.
then i crack my rim in half. i posted about this.
then i put on my old winter tires which are to big for the car (205/65/15 i ordered 205/60/15 but they ordered the wrong size and wouldnt replace it cause i signed the recipte bleehhhh) so they rub on every turn and bump.
then i drive 45 minutes to adams house (RHCP) to pick up is 04ex stockers for now and when i go to take the tires i have on now off i break the wheel stud.
apparently the lugs backed them selfs off and cross threaded them selfs and got stuck. so when i when to take it off it snapped. the good thing about it though is it stopped my wheel from falling off while i was driving. so now i am driving an 05 Elantra which handels like a sail boat lol.

BLEEEEHHHHHH stupid car always has to stupidiest problems at the wrong time.

I feel your pain. My brother got his car in december, and not three days after he got it a truck went through a red light and slid in to him putting his car in the shop for two weeks. After he got it back a week later a rock got thrown up his hood to his windshield and left a line you could follow to the crack. A couple of days later he hit a large piece of metal in the road that busted his oil pan and destoyed the engine. It took three weeks for them to replace the engine. And last but not least. He was driving down the road around 50 mph and his hood latch gave way and popped back to the windshield and bent it up pretty bad. I hope his pain in some way helps you. It has been about three months since his last mishap, and looks like he is doing OK.

well since i last posted i had to replace the spindle on the driver side cause it seized and both tierod ends. so totaling out to $505.63. then when i get the car out of the shop i go to put your rims on adam and break another wheel stud. this one was their fault. they didnt use the special hubcap lugs on my hub cap so it didnt go on properly cause the hub cap got in the way. so they are replacing that in like 10 minutes.
