    My car has been off the road for 4 weeks waiting for springs.LMF tried
    but failed to get some Eibach springs for the siggy but after the 3rd mix up took pity on me and sold me some Irmscher springs instead
    So the boys at LMF sorted in the end.

    Was at my mates tyre depot this morning, a 55 reg SAAB 9-3 Aero convertable came in with a flat front tyre that happened "Just around the corner".
    Front O/S coil spring snapped and went straight through a £150 Continental tyre.
    He was not impressed when shown, however SAAB sent out a replacement car without quibble and took his away for repair.
    Can't see a VX dealer doing that can you?
