    Default While I was galavanting around Trax...

    Poor old Shaz had a bit of a nightmare!

    She'd popped into Newbury to go shopping in Tesco's. As she was coming back, she pulled alongside a Merc SLK and thought, oooh, that's got a nice sounding exhaust. Then it pulled away and the noise stayed. Ah, that'll be my exhaust then!

    She phoned me up and told me. I said get next door to have a little peep at it to see where it's gone, after all, I'm at Trax, if it's a back box, I might find one for a Punto!

    Anyway, it had snapped at the back box. I said phone Kwik fit, see if they've got one, if so, just go in and get it sorted. Typically they had seven different versions, none in stock, can you bring it down. She duly does, it's identified, priced and ordered.

    As she is coming home, on a busy mini roundabout, the whole thing snapped, fell off then twisted under the rear of the car, ended up jammed in the rear wheel arch. Surprise surprise, not one person stopped to help her, obviously struggling to do anything. Luckily a friend was passing and beasted it off the car! It's now in the boot!

    So a bit of a trauma. She's seen the funny side of it, she's called the car Eeyore, as it's grey and it's tail comes off!!
