    Default worst day ever for the vec

    well this morning i was greeted by a very low tyre, pumped it up all seemed fine. then at dinnertime walked out of work only to see two flat tyres one with a HUGE screw stuck out of it (god knows what happend there) and the other for some unexplained reason. so one replaced one repaired not to bad.......then driving down the motorway at some miles an hour one of the lads opens the rear window and the tint half removed itself from the glass...oh and a stone chip in the windscreen i discovered in the process think i may be staying at home for a while

    Had a similar day myself... Pull out of lane 2 into lane 1 to make a bluetooth call, lower speed = less noise and promptly found a huge stone flicked up by a transit, nice stone chip and within 15secs it cracked to the edge of the screen....

    Then an hour later i got a parking ticket even though i was only 12 foot away from the car at the time... Sort of gave up just after lunch being about £120 quid down today
