    Default Good News and Bad News....

    Had my car in for the MOT on Friday, received a phone call....

    "Hi Sir, we have good news and bad news regarding your car!!"

    "Ok, whats the good news..?"

    "It passed the MOT."

    "So whats the bad news then..?"

    "Putting it on the ramps we managed to rip the splitter off the front !!!!!"

    AAAAARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To be fair, they are putting in right, but I'm driving my car with no splitter, it looks like a chinless wonder now

    Hopefully it will be ready for the meet this weekend

    Annoying thing is I told them to watch it when taking it on and off the ramps when I dropped it off

    Ouch !! At least they are sorting it out for you and being honest rather than bodging it.

    Sorry to hear this, I hate my cars going into ANY dealer !! - I truly dred it

    My Fiat 500 is in the dealers at the moment getting a new Clutch Master Cylinder fitted (after 4000 miles from new ).

    I warned them that I'd lowered it (as its only 6 inches off the ground), but they assured me they used to be a lambourghini dealer and have low ramps.

    Hopefully it will survive.

    I hate ramps as my old VXRD 19" VXR alloy wheel was badly damaged by a Vauxhall mechanic scrapeing them on the ramps, they paid for a new alloy thankfully

    If my VXR goes into the dealers I sit and wait with it... especially after the last one fitted a windscreen wiper motor under warranty and took it for a 'test drive'... came back with 7.5mpg average consumption... cheeky *******s, I went mad as I'd reset all the fuel and mileage computers before I took it in... and showed them...

    This was a dealer that are used to kitted up motors (not naming them as they are normally very good) and said it would be fine, they are used to it... clearly not

    I guess that's why most of us look very hard for a garage we can trust - odd that main dealers so often fail on that one.
    Glad they're putting it right for you, at least that's something, depending on how good a job they do.
