    A bit of a rant

    Well i am a little bit annoyed wih my local body work center at the mo and here is why. 3 weeks ago my astra gsi had some women drive into the front of it which ended up breaking my light and bumper. so off it went into the garage to get fixed(3 days they told me). Any way 3 weeks later still no car
    Have phoned them on several occasions now and this is the excuse that they keep giving me......Sorry sir but our parts department has ordered you the wrong bumper. Now this has happend 3 times now. How hard is it to order a bumper for a mk4 gsi. i am thinking about ordering it myself and taking it to them . Any way they told me today that i sould get it back for monday so fingers crossed. But unill then i am in a 1.2 polo which the women at the hire place said was nippy, now a north eastly wind is nippy this polo isnt Well enough of the rant now. just thought i would share that with you

    Scunner mate! That's a pretty rough transition - GSi to 1.2 Polo... Did she know what kind of car you were putting into the bodyshop before she said that?!

    And 3 weeks, and 3 wrong bumpers ordered is a complete piss take mate, who's running their parts dept?!

    tell me about it. it must be a muppet in there parts department. you would of thought after the first time they would of got it right. i think they are just trying to screw over the insurance by having it in there longer so they can charge for the hire car.

    Ah yeah, I guess. Still - you could always go and say you want to put it to a bodyshop of your choice? If they can't even order the right part, how are they supposed to make a good job of your pride and joy?!
