    Vehicle : Insignia VX-line RED Tourer

    Trim : No, over weight!

    Engine : Flux Core Capacitor

    Year : 1 A.D

    Mileage : Rising

    Default 24,000 miles and i need a new rack !

    Had the car in the dealers today, for them to 'investigate' why my car steers itself !
    Well, the result is what i expected, it needs a new steering rack.
    Not very good for a car with 24k on the clock !
    They've ordered me a new rack that'll be fitted sometime next week.
    Thankfully its still covered by the warrenty !!!

    Do you think that 19" wheels speed up the wear rate ?


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    Don't see why - there's enough of them around...

    I'm glad it's under warranty - I could picture you sending me the invoice...

    When i went to pick my car back up, the girl on the service desk said
    " FIL ? ........ black Vectra ...... ? The M/D wants to speak to you !"

    Oh - bu99er i thought ! Whats wrong !!!

    The girl pops off into the office and out comes the M/D.

    "Your car looks bl00dy lovely mate ! Where did you have the seats done ? How much, how long did they take ? Do you mind if i go and sit in it ?" he says.

    Looks like CCS could be having some more interiors to do, but i hope that they don't look like mine !!!!!
