Default buying second hand stuff = headache

currently i am looking for a:

- xbox 360
- citreon saxo 1.1

i have been looking for over a week, spent enough money on petrol looking at cars.

i have also contacted countless people about buying an xbox 360 and wasted so many hours of my day.

as i have little money i am careful with what i have got. (although the car is for the GF)

as i am also currently job hunting as well. SOON it will be day time tv, 4 kids and a concil house. Im going insane

Take the money from the GF for the car. Spend it on a new Xbox plus all the games and accessories you want. She'll then dump you leaving you with plenty of time on your hands to play it.

You're welcome.

Yeah, be very wary about using it cos anything electronic seems to attract scammers and plebs trying to rip you off.

Btw, get a ps3 instead.

Shame you're down surrey.
My old xbox is collecting dust next to my nice new shiny one.
