    Bad Night

    Disclaimer: i already know i am a fucking idiot, no need to reiterate it. i am just telling you this so nobody fucks up like i did.

    alright, last night, cruising to my buddies house. i was following behind him and we get to the street before the one his house his on. halfway down the street my radio cuts off for 2 seconds. i think naturally that it is the switch we wired in and keep driving. 5 seconds later the same thing happens again. i just put it out of my mind. so i make the right hand turn and BOOM the car shuts off. i take it out of gear and let it roll becasue i know i have to push it and i want to get the extra twenty feet the energy of the car has. the whole car is dead. so my buddy i was following runs down to my car and helps me push it to his house. we get it to his house, and i immediately think of the battery, becaseu the battery light on my dash is on, which my friend told me means that my charging system isnt too great. so i open the trunk and immediately smell a very bad smell.

    in between the two terminals of the battery (i dont have the battery tray on because i dont have one.) is the metal lid to the stock amp that i took out of my sentra, left at my moms house while she moved, and had her put in the trunk of my bimmer so i could take it back to my dads house and it was perfectly JAMMED under the positive terminal. the lid was black and smelled like an asshole. i took the lid out, told my buddy to grab some jumper cables, then looked into the trunk to see this....



    no i dont drag my battery behind my car, the pic was taken after i took it out of the car

    and the red stuff is corosion preventative shit. it wasnt from the damage

    so i tell him to forget the cables, and i take the pic of it, and i purposely spill some battery acid on a weed. and today we looked at it, and it was pwned. majorly.

    so anyways. i go buy a new battery and 80 some odd dollars later i put the battery in and the car starts up and runs fine.

    moral of the story - dont leave random metal pieces that might somehow JAM there ass in between your battery terminals when you are driving.

    have a good day.

              yeah, i am picking one up from my friend today. this will not happen again.

              and yes, the battery was almost twice as much as the car. not fun.oh well. i am making some money from an amp i have. though i might be getting a nice recaro bucket seat.

                  it's okay. you should have seen it when I got a 1/4" drive ratchet stuck between the positive terminal of my starter and the brake booster. it melted the wrench, welded it to the booster and totally fried the fluid in the brake lines (and I had JUST flushed it with new superblue!). no damage done, but it wasted a good 3 hours of my time..

                    yeah, no damage either, but just a pain in the ass and waste of money.

                      You should spend the money on a front end... Or, get the seat, use it for a month, send it to me and I will send you my battery cover. I think that's fair!

                          Well thats what I mean, get a whole front end that isn't fucked up! I remember you saying that you have the pieces, but you need to attach a new front clip, right?

                          Shit, you should just buy my almost complete 335i... You come and tow it away and I will give you some free E46 M3 stock suspension and a special clearance price on the car! I'm just about completely unmotivated to finish it at this point... And it's nowhere near as fucked up as your car! All it needs are shocks, a driveshaft shortening ($100), and an exhaust system... Plus its a Euro 3.5, it's got enough torque to make all your dreams come true :pimp:
