    Default Loan Car

    I dropped my car in to get the new bumper fitted this morning and picked up the courtesy car.

    ....A Nissan Micra! I often wondered what they did with recycled Coke cans!

    Going from 2 tons of diesel powered Signum to a Dinky toy which changes lane if you hiccup was a bit of a shock to the system, but it was better than walking!

    nice... they are rubbish to work on aswell, I dislike the way that they put stupid little plstic clips on there that break under the minimalistic of pressure.

    Luckily, it's only for the day. I just can't get used to holding onto the revs when I drive a petrol car these days, and I end up changing up far too early, then bogging the thing down.
    Still, it actually had some petrol in, which is unusual for a loan car!

    Got my car back last night, with it's new bumper fitted. looks like a really good job and they did a nice valet on the car, too.
    After complaining about the Micra, I got quite a surprise at how high a speed it could reach on the way back down the M1! Probably because it weighs about 14 ounces. Then I got back in my car, and was vividly reminded of manouvering a canal barge for the first 5 minutes, it felt so big.
    So, thanks to Fieldhouse and Husband in Houghton Regis for the repair, and Zurich insurance for moving things so quickly. Now I wait for my next insurance renewal to see what it's REALLY cost me.
