    Default free screwdriver from VXL!

    As you may have seen, I recently had my car serviced. After the second visit to the dealer (to have the correct oil put in!) I found out that the nice dealer had given me a free screwdriver.

    Only thing is, they didn't tell me & left it in the engine bay!.

    It was between the air box & wing.

    The dealer I used may have been cheap, but they were nasty too!

    Working on aircraft, all our tools have to be accounted for and the aircarft can not go flying until everything is check and signed in. Car go more than fast enough to kill as has been seen just this week on the M25. I believe the same care should be taken with car work and always check all my tools on completion. If you find this kind of thing, you should be taking it to a complaints body as it is extreemly dangerous.
