: Pic: 5000 miles, tranny shot, tires bald

I had my V1 in this week for a warranty fix, and this V2 coupe was in the shop. I asked what the deal was. A new car with only 5000 miles, and the owner has worn the rear tires bald and blown the transmission. No warranty coverage for him, apparently! I know this is the V1 forum, but I had to show you guys. I'm afraid I don't have enough disposable income to either a) buy a V2, or b) afford to work it over like that. I thought I should share the story!

The original owner of my car said we wore through his first set of run-flats in 4000 miles. The blown tranny is a little surprising, though!!

Wow I wish I had the money to do that with
