My Toyota has been the only flawless car that I have owned and I agree with your statement 100%. My 2003 BMW was a disaster and I will NEVER purchase another

I suppose these things can happen......

Cheers!

it's a production line, shit happens, life goes on. The bags themselves should all be complete though, it's quite rare that parts are missing because each bag is weighed prior to going out

oh and my holden (technically it's an opel) is falling apart too. They don't make em like they used to

that's because i've abused the car more than anything else..lol it's run almost without no oil at one point i just never checked it..since then the valve springs or the valves have been rattley...it's a tough bugger though, it will go for another 100,000K easy.

I go as much as 3mm split...... sometimes even 4mm.

I don't know why my rear tires wear rather quickly, ( I have to compensate it with very big split ).
