    Screw you Dad.. :)

    I had the pleasurable experience of catching my fair towns public transport system down to my father’s choice of mechanic at Tuggrah on (the Central Coast) in order to drive his pride and joy back for a vacation at my place.

    For I’m the designated baby sitter of his 504ti for the time being..

    Slight problem tho.. I have no intention of actually returning his car..

    It was down for a basic over-haul with many air-lines needing much replacement. He also fitted the 5sp 505 box along with subsequent torque tubs.. A 505 diesel diff and all other required mounting mechanicals.

    I remember arguing with someone a while ago, saying that carbs would always sound better then that mechanical Ti. Injection…. Well I take it all back.. That little hum../ Sucking wooosssshhhh.. nearly sounding like a low psi turbo spooling up is very quite dam unique..

    So yeah .. Even tho I have a very well looked after 505 STI parked on my property… even tho it is much nicer to drive… dam aricon, power-steering etc.. Even tho it has 3 usable mirrors.. And is indeed equally enjoyable to use as a form of Transportation… I just cant dam well bring myself to drive it with the somewhat bug eyed 504 staring me down.. Like… of 04. . Has chronic wind noise.. The engine drone is intrusive… indicators have about a 2 second lag before they will work.. It is generally much rougher the 505..

    It just dam well has me in some bizarre curse.. I dare not cheat on my baby even.. if it be another pug..

    Now I just got to tell dad he’s not getting his car back.. wink

    Why the diesel diff? If you want an auto electrician can replace the indicator relays with an electronic unit for about $30. I did this on my last TI and assuming the stalk is nice and tight (there is a lot of difference in the styles) it won't bother you in the least. Good luck telling your dad. 505's are ugly.

    Well, if you don't want to cheat on the poor girl, you couuld just donate her onto the local 505 menagerie near the uni.

    You couuld just claim "no dad this is my 504, what 505?? I've never had a 505......you must have just seen it around the area"
