    Angry How Much

    just got of the phone to the garage

    £334 for service and MOT

    broken down to

    £152 Service
    £30 MOT
    £32 brake/cluch fluid change
    £15 Wheel Balance
    £30 Re alignment of front wheels

    £75 to have the sump re threaded as half the thread has come off with the bolt and they can't get the nut to thighten securly

    was expect the all but the last one wouldn't have been to bad with out that

    they wanted to charge me £120 for two rear tyres as well but they are still leagal albiet just so i managed to get away with that one!!!

    got the car back at last!!

    apperently the thread coming off is fairly common on ally sumps, i asked the guy if it is possible that at the previous service they had cross threaded the sump plug when refitting but he said it wasn't cross threaded just one of those things that happens to ally sumps if they go slighlty pourous!!

    makes it a little bit better if it is just one of those things that cant really be helped

    finally bill was £334 which anit to bad i suppose (they told me grake fluid change was £22)

    can tell the difference now the front wheels have been aligned properly to!!

    also sorted the rough idling for me i did mention that it propably just needed some carb cleaner in the TB so that probably all they did but it worked!!

    got a free tin of sweets and they let me of a penny
