    Default Not a happy camper!!!

    Ordered new wheels last week as you know, and they were supposed to be here Friday last, but never turned up! Anyway, they finally arrived at 1300 today, so got down to bolting them on! As i did up the wheel nuts, the centre cap popped out! Turns out the end of the driveshaft pokes thru the centre of the wheel! Phoned up the supplying company and fired some f*cks into them, it turns out they sent me the wrong centre caps, the one's they sent me were for a Mercedes, not a Vectra(Vauxhall's should have deeper centre caps for the very reason i found out, so they told me!!)

    So i now have the wheels, but cant fit them as they have the wrong centre caps, and i am not running around with no centre caps as it looks god damn awful!!

    Not a Happy Camper!!!!

    New Caps were sent out Special Delivery this afternoon, so hopefully will be here tomorrow!

    Least they sorted it out straight away and didn't charge you for the delivery of the new ones... Can imagine a lot of companies who would, or would take ages to send them out, or not care at all...

    Oh dear, let hope they've sent the right ones! Does that mean another day off work waiting for the to arrive?

    No, the wheels were delivered to my brother's garage in Luton, so the centres will go there tomorrow, then back up there for fitting the wheels again!
