    Default slightly unsure with the vec

    guys i dont know about the vec at the minute. The car went in to get the aircon regassed and a service. once it was in i got a phone call the car needs
    1,new pads front
    2, new pads and disks rear
    3, 4 new tyres needed asap
    4 the turbo is on its way out!!!!!

    so i ordered the pads and disks and let them sort out the turbo (through the aa warranty). so it was in and i got another phone call. the aircon compressor could be leaking and the swirl bar is starting to fail. i said fix the swirl bar but leave the aircon as i didnt want to risk this claim being turned down. An guy came out to check over the car but gave the go ahead.(aa again) which is good. then tonight i rang to see is it finished and was told on the rebuild they have damaged a pulley so that is ordered and hope to get it back on wed. i have been thinking about changing it and said that to the guy i know in vx. he recons i should keep it till next year after all thats gone into it but i still need 4 tyres just feel a bit let down by the car atm. bit of a vent but no car for 2.5 weeks (also due to ni closing down for 3 days last week). it also makes me think should i change the wheels and tyres atm cause it could be much more?
