vel drivers - suspension springs - anyone else has this?
my gorgeous vel has now been in the garage for 2 weeks because ( I am assured) there is only one genuine Vel suspension spring to be found in the UK ( so they're going to have to change the broken side only - not ideal) and apparently none in France! They're on back order with Renault for manufacture. Even as I write this I'm thinking that sounds a bit odd - doesn't Sarcosi get driven about in one of these things ( bet he's got a garage full of spares though).
But I guess the important message to get to all Vel Satis drivers is pray you never break a suspension spring, becuase the car rental bill is likely to exceed the repair bill you'll end up with - eventually. As a result I'm likely to be getting shot of my lovely car in the near future- I can just about stand the bills, but having it off the road for weeks at a time is plain ridiculous.
Has anyone else had this problem please?
