    rolleyes Christmas treat for the car

    Car is now booked in to get a new clutch, DMF, cambelt kit and water pump on Monday. The garage has got the car for the whole day and all for £1200. Relatively good imo. Can't wait to get it back and sit in a car that doesn't vibrate constantly .

    Anyone else had big bills this season?

    The car wasn't 100% when I bought it and I was always thinking about changing stuff. Originally I was going to uprate them, but I will look after it a bit more when it is fixed.
