Duff Motor

Hi Guys

Well i've well and truly been sold a kipper/lemon here.

Start of May i bought a WRX bugeye.

This was the start of the nightmare i've had.

Day of purchase: Drives home with small hicup/slightly missing when on boost.
Think nothing of it as i just thought it may of stood for a while.

One day later i have a nasty clunk when selecting 1st gear / comes and goes for another month.

2 mths later clutch starts slipping.

3 mths later while only driving off boost because of clutch until i can sell afford to drop new clutch in the car overheats and tell tale signs / fear of headgasket gone.

Pull off thermostat housing with a butchered thermostat (missing purposely broken off) discovered.

Do i stand anywhere with this garage for any sort of comeback at all as sure this is just not acceptable or am i just wasting my time.
