    Default Good news about our new Coupe

    I picked the car up last night and frankly I'm over the moon with it. I've never seen the wife so enthusiastic about a car in my life. She actually went out in it 'just for a drive' and she's never done that before in any car.

    Looking through the service history I couldn't see any mention of it having the timing belt done and the car's got 49,000 miles on the clock. As the dealer is near me I telephoned them today to get the full lowdown on it's history. Basically the guy who owned it previously was a stickler for the littlest detail and all the work had been carried out and then some -

    The timing belt was changed at 38,353 along with a service on 18th September 2006. The bill came to over £900 as he also had the throttle body cleaned, plus an MOT and loads of other stuff.

    So basically all I've got to do with the car is book it in for it's annual service which in now 8th September at the same dealership. They've said they're going to print off everything that's been done on the car for me to add to it's history (apparently it's never gone without).

    I'm well pleased.

    They're great motors IMO. The missus motor sticks to the road like a Ferrari in comparison with my Vec. I'll be sorry to see it go TBH.
