uhhhh I'm probably going to break 400k before the end of this month, so I should probably post up before I do!

On a side note, only about 340,000 of that is original before I ended up rebuilding the motor cause well... judging by my signature, I'm a little too abusive on the old car.

Love it to pieces though! Rides nice handles nice, not to mention it was my first car. It's my baby, probably won't get rid of it anytime soon that's for sure!

Kinda funny there isn't anything I really don't like about the car. I guess if I had to though, I don't like how the switches for the door are so complicated to get to. A push button to signal the door is open would have been a lot better design IMO. The rear window frames insist on rusting out regardless of the countless repair jobs. Diesel isn't as cheap as it used to be either... albeit not the car's fault!
