I had the car serviced yesterday & came away 346 lighter They rang me up & seemed to delight in telling me all the things wrong with the car! I asked them to carry out the problems with the brakes (for safety reasons) & the initial price more than doubled...

I still have the following to try to sort out myself:
Exhaust silencer corroded
bracket for exhaust that screws into the cat(?) & is causing the cat to rattle on the sump) is missing, DOES ANYONE HAVE OR KNOW WHERE TO GET A PART NUMBER FOR THIS BRACKET??
possible head gasket oil leak
inner drive shaft boot oil leak
gear box oil black
front engine mount seperating
alternator belt cracked
small leaks in bottom of Radiator
Coolant is rusty

Managed to get a Haynes manual for her so It's time to roll up my sleeves & get on with it!
