My 87 900 is cursed. That is my latest conclusion. After all of the agony it's put my throuhg lately, I happened to hit a piece of wood on the highway, and dinged my alluminium allow rim. I finally found someone in the area (200 km away) who had one at a foreign autowreckers. (I couldn't wait a week to get a real one in and continue driving 80 km/h while I was waiting). I was forced to buy the rim they had. Unfortunately, this was an ugly rusty, scratched steel rim. Does anyone have any suggestions on streightening an allumnium rim or getting an inexpensive replacement? Also, my car has developped an annoying mettal crunching squeel-like sound whenever it is in neutral. Could this have anything to do with the tourture the people who "changed" my clutch inflicted on my darling car? Please CC: c_a_nowellnopsamailREMOVETHIS.com
