Default Do I have the worst luck or what .....?

I just bought a pile of new bits for my MY93 WRX

I managed to source the whole facelift front end for quite cheap on ebay over the past month or so.

Anyway Saturday morning I started the car up to let the girlfriend out of the drive and parked the car back up.

Was away out in a hire van all day, got back about 3pm tried to start the car, but it wouldn't start.

I was away out that night so left it till the following day, tried to start it again and it wouldn't start.

The car cranks over, but won't fire up.

I have not had much luck with this car...

Anyway so what this post is about is to see if any of you fellow scooby owners could either suggest a garage that will come out and look at the car, or someone to come and have a look at it for me. I am in Dundee and willing to pay good money to get it fixed.

I have emailed JVS in Edinburgh, but not received a reply so I don't think they are interested and I wouldn't take the car to AWD so they are out of the window......anyone else ?

cheers

Really sorry to read all about this - really unfortunate stuff. Get it fixed though - after all the cost, then just hope it runs well. A real pity.

Did you ever get any money from the person you bought t from as he stated in the scoobynet old thread from October?

Someone will defo recommend a good garage for you.

He called me up and offered to fix the car labour free, I just had to pay trade price on the parts.

I was happy with that, but he was a bit too far to get the car to for him to have a look at it.

I am sure someone will post up offering some help, the post has only been up for an hour or so.

Here is hopeing !

Cheers

Have you checked you Scottish Scoobies thread - there are most replies there. That is where you'll get most help.

Andy was in on Saturday....unless he flew out today or yesterday....
Have you tried The Garage in Wishaw? Marc, the owner, knows his stuff - helps the JVS guys out too and had one of the best known Skylines in Scotland too

He has always done the work on my cars (well since I got "proper" cars!)
