So, after a day out in Lichtenvoorde my car decided to have difficulty starting. Fair enough, it happens. But since it's a VW Lupo 3L, the start/stop system also decided to act up.

And fixing it will hopefully turn out cheap, with a crapped out relay being the main culprit, otherwise I could be looking at either a rather expensive adjustment of the software, or worse still, a replacement of the clutch.

I'll be getting vacation pay soon, but if all goes pear shaped it won't be spent on vacations or other fun stuff. Goddamnit indeed.
