More repairs?

Grrrrrrr Well if anyone here remembers my threads about my transmission troubles lately, then this is what I'm talking about it. Had it looked at by two mechanics today and the general consensus is that the slave cylinder needs replaced or something with the clutch disc that is causing it to not fully disengage which mean........it has to come out again . Man this sucks. We bleed the clutch about 4 times today to make for 100% sure no air was in the line, adjusted the linkage and lubed it aswell, it shifts better but still to stiff. I'm so bummed, I just want to drive my car without having to worry about this trans anymore. Once I start making more money, I really can see selling it in the future. Not so much because it's been a bad car, other than these recent trans issues it's been awesome. But because I've kinda lost the spark I had with the car, I don't enjoy it as much as I did and as much as I'd hate to see it go, I'd rather see someone else be happy with it rather than me be, ehhh kinda happy. We'll see what the future holds, I gotta get it in good running order before I think of handing it to someone else first.

Right now, hot cars on my list are 1)WRX 2)RSX Type S 3)E36 BMW 325 are my 3 top choices as of current. But that won't be for awhile if even this year, depends how things go. I may end up loving the car again once it's back to it's normal badass self.

Haha...If I end up selling it eventually, alot of the aftermarket would get sold i.e. supercharged unless I sold privately and the buyer wanted them on thier still. Those are my only set of wheel though and actually are, 1 is bent from previous owner and the other has some curb rash from me hitting a curb in a snow storm.

No, not ever. I won't buy another focus, not that I don't think they are good cars, but I plan on upgrading if I get a new car. And besides, I strongly dislike the new 08's....ALOT.

Yeah, the new 08's are a mistake. I can't stand that big chrome mess they call the grill.
