Yeah, awesome story actually. 18 year old girl buys the GF's car (VW cabrio) last tuesday at 2pm, and around 10pm, she gets a text from the new owner saying she's been in an accident that wasn't her fault, and the car has been written off. Nobody hurt, but jesus, she'd only had the car for a few hours and writes it off just like that!

Anyways, I'm stuck driving the vert with my storage tires, failed (open)t-stat, front wheel bearing about to explode, hardtop without a defrost switch attached, muffler hanging by a thread, dry-ass wiper blades (not that it matters becuase there's no fluid in the washer tank), and a battery that dies if you leave your Ipod plugged in. I can't wait to get this POS into storage!

GF is driving the coupe. Which has no front sway bar. FML. Ive gotta enjoy this though, because I haven't heard the "Why do you own two cars?" argument in two weeks

+++ park it, disconnect battery, done. Maybe start it once or twice but if you do then make sure it gets up to temperature before shutting it off.

Fill the tank up
disconnect the negative battery terminal
over inflate the tires
park the car on cardboard or foam
put a cover on it
and place a bag of salt with holes in it at either end of the car to absorb moisture

What I do with my E30, is that I fill up all the air in the tire's to 40 psi, fill up the tank of gas, unplug the battery, and put in my garage covered until the summer, and during the winter, i plug in the battery and start it up to make sure everything is good!.
