    Default give a stealer credit where it is due

    i know this is going to sound weird but i have to actually give a stealer some credit today

    came up from bracknell to luton yesterday as its my weekend with the kids

    girlfriend rings me on fri afternoon to say she has a flat tyre on her corsa

    obviously i dcant do a lot being 56 miles away so she says shes happy to sort it out

    rings back 20 mins later , did i know where the locking wheel nut key was

    no i said should be in the car

    never needed it before so assumed it was there
    she looked everywhere in the car but to no avail

    so i phoned kwik fit in bracknell this morning and asked if they could remove it they said bring it down

    couldnt do it normally as it has a slip ring on the nut to stop it being removed with certain tools then proceeded to quote £84 to drill it out and that was just one of 4

    so girlfriend went round to the stealers thinking maybe they could help

    couldnt believe it when she told me they walke out with a load of locking wheel nut sockets tried them till they got the right one and then fitted new ones she had brought at the cost of £25 for free


    i am actually really impressed

    the stealer

    My local one Picadors in Sholing are spot on they are so helpful and sometimes will do the work and not charge the full monty. They had my car last year for a week and drove it on several occasions to pin point the fault, charged me 1/2 hours labour for all the time they put in told me what the problem was and suggested I clean my own EGR, spot on saved me a packet.
