From bad to million times worse!!!

My story begins a few weeks ago when I came back from sydney, I herd a whining noise comming from my gear box, so I had it looked at. The trans guy said it would it cost about $800 to fix the problem, I thought this can wait a bit cause there was no other problem except for the noise, the gearbox was still running fine, (now I realise I really should have fixed it then).

Then when I got to work today and pulled into the car park, I felt a small kind of bumpy clunky noise, wasn't sure what it was or where it was from, or whether I just ran over something, and it only happened once, so I thought meh! (boy was I wrong)

At my lunch break, I was bored so I thought went to get some fuel, no sign of the noise again, so I just went for a cruze. Just a bout 1 km up the road in forth gear there was this MASSIVE CRUNCH, CLUNCK and SHUDDER!!! There goes the box, *&^%!! scared the living piss out of me!! I pulled over, clutched in and was still able to shift through the gears, but when ever I try to drive any where, there is pretty bad noise coming from the 5 speed supra box!

only lucky thing is I live around the corner from where I work, and not too far from where this happened so I just walked home, called up work and told them what happened.

So here I am, at home, hoping I have enough money to fix it before uni starts.....

Well good luck with it mate, had a few of those stranded moments myself and they can be challenging.

On the up side I'de say the box sounded like it was trashed anyway so you just sped the process up a tad.
