Got some good news today. Mybonnet extension which snapped has now been replaced, big thanks to Dan at Irmscher UK for sorting the warranty for me. It arrived at the local Vauxhall dealers and now they need to send it out for painting that work is also covered under the Irmscher warranty. RESULT!
One pain in the bum sorted, one more to do
The car is going to the bodyshop as well next week, to have the boot spoiler redone and get the bumper sprayed to lose all the stonechips. So another bugbear out of the way ops:
And finally, the car is getting the engine looked at on Friday as there is a funny little noise coming from the timing belt end, could be the water pump so that will be a warranty job
All in all, everything seems to have turned around in the space of a week
Lots of work being done and most of it is costing me not a penny
