    Is it worth it to buy this car?

    So I'm buying my first car from my long-time girlfriend's dad, and it definitely needs some work. I want to know if it's worth it with the repairs, or I should just get something else 6 months in the future around the same price. Car: 2001 Audi A6 2.8, ~150K miles Problems: Entire front plastic fascia needs replaced Rubber inserts for optional headlight wipers needed Speakers work but are very distorted and static-y at all volumes Minor dents all over sides and corners of car Back left window needs motor replaced Back seat cup holders need replaced Back seat emergency kit flap needs replaced One of the engine mount bolts needs replaced (car jumps when accelerating suddenly) Entire windshield wiper system needs replaced Paints needs touched up all over car Battery needs replaced Headliner needs put back into place in various places He is offering me the car in it's current condition for $1700, and he said there may be more wrong with the car that he doesn't know about, but this is what Firestone reported about 90 days ago. All together it's looking to be $4000-$4500 in repairs to get it all fixed up, but I don't know if it's worth it. I am no car expert, so I figured I'd throw this out there as I'm sure someone knows a good bit about them. All help is appreciated, thanks!

    Ok, thanks for the advice. Not to bombard you, but do you think these two cars are worth the money? http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?zip=29466&endYear=2015&sortBy=derivedpriceASC&showcaseOwnerId=27533423&startYear=1981&maxMileage=100000&searchRadius=25&maxPrice=5000&showcaseListingId=385262727&listingId=381381807&Log=0 http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?zip=29466&endYear=2015&sortBy=derivedpriceASC&showcaseOwnerId=27533423&startYear=1981&firstRecord=26&maxMileage=100000&searchRadius=25&maxPrice=5000&showcaseListingId=385262727&listingId=385766786&Log=0

    I see it's not a great deal now, but it doesn't matter that it's my girlfriend's dad's car. I've been with my girlfriend for a very long time, and have a great relationship with her parents.

    Thanks Antec and LMG! I'd have to say my favorite would be the EDG750. It's sexy, reliable, and quiet. What more could you ask for?

    Sony Xperia Z2

    Fav thing about the Z2? Definitely the battery life and display. Fav thing about Dbrand? Probably the pricing and customization abilities via their website. Thanks for the giveaway LMG and Dbrand!

    LG G3 Review and.... TWENTY-FIVE Phone Giveaway?!

    The screen is what I'm most pumped for. Although I can't see the difference between it and 1080p probably, developing games and apps for it to take advantage of all the pixels would be interesting. Thanks for the giveaway LMG and LG!

    Thank you for not being Reddit

    This community is honestly the nicest and most caring bunch of people I have ever interacted with on the internet. Every one of you that I've talked to has been nice, and always supportive. As dumb as that may sound it means a lot to me, because through all the shit I go through every day, it's nice to know that for part of my free time, I can enjoy communicating with others about things we have a passion about. As for the title of the post, I say that because I keep trying to give Reddit the credit others think they deserve as a good community, but I've come to the conclusion that they aren't. I posted my computer build to the /r/BuildAPC subreddit and immediately got shit on the parts I chose and got not one, not two, but three different PMs telling me that I was "a dumbass faggot that doesn't know shit". I do know what I'm talking about, and I do have reason behind why I build the computers I build, but to the bunch of "nice" people that Reddit is supposed to be, they certainly do not care. What they do seem to care about though is bringing people down to a low. Now there is a few subreddits that seem actually nice, but for the remaining 99% not so much. This is just my experience, and in no way did I mean to offend any of you that are on Reddit. I'm just venting essentially :p
  11. So, I have an interesting problem. I can see all my VPN connections (and they aren't greyed out), but when I click on any one of the profiles, nothing happens. I've rebooted many times, updated Ubuntu to the latest updates, restarted and re-installed OpenVPN and the network manager many times, but nothing has worked. A video is included to show what happens. Thanks in advance for anyone's advice/help
  12. Sorry, didn't know about that. Also, wasn't trying to copy anyone with this video. Honestly I just had an idea and made a video.

    AT M50s vs Sennheiser 558

    I have the M50s and they sound pretty great to me for the price. The bass is nice and tight, highs are sharp but retain clarity, and mids are relatively flat, although sometimes they seem muddy with Rock / Live EDM.

    Well scaring the shit out of me put an end to that real quick. Just threw away the rest of the 24-pack.

    Monster Energy Drink Addiction

    Yeah, its stupid. Lately I've been completely hooked on these things. I feel like I'm doing something wrong if I don't have 2, maybe 3 a day. Any tips on how to slow this down?
  23. So tell me, why do you have the parts you have right now? Personally, I never intended for myself to have the parts I have. After being over generous and giving away about all of the parts I had purchased to finally have a nice rig, I was left with nothing. Somehow I've ended up with this oddball (in my sig). It's not a screamer, it's really not much of anything, but it'll get me by for a bit.

    My personal RIG.

    Nice! How's the size of the 540? I've been thinking about one but it just seems too big..
