    Default back from the garage.......

    right, Ive had enough of my car sounding like a jeep going down the road and after my ear started to bleed - I took it to the garage to find out the problem....

    they said:

    corroded front nearside bearing - price to fix - £241.50
    rear coil springs corroded - price to fix - £231.15
    rear brake pads low - price to fix - £112.21

    bloomin expensive to me, i can get cheaper.

    hub then, then brakes followed by coils - am i right?
