Re: New to the forums saying hi!

And so it starts....

Put the car into the garage today to have an early MOT and find out what else is wrong with it..

Mot Failed (as expected really) on:

Rear sprint broken
Both track rod ends worn
Lower NS wishbone arm bush excessively worn

That was 260+VAT to repair...

Add to that...

Service - 220 + VAT
Cambelt + Water pump change - 350+VAT

Total... 1053.99 inc vat - OUCH!

So maybe buying a 'cheap' car was not such a good idea after all... With parts and repairs it now owes me around 2400.

Ah well, at lease I now have a car in great condition with 12 months MOT and a fresh service.

Now I just need to find somebody close to Warwick with a CLIP that can re-initialise my air-con compressor... it seems to have forgotten one is fitted.
