Dropped for a service yesterday. Got a courtesy car. It was supposed to be an E90 M3, but for various reasons it was this...
It got a CD player, player, player. And a drivers' window wedged up with a chock of timber. This happened:
...due to the vibrations caused by attempting to achieve >60mph on the bypass.
Garage phoned to confirm that the service will be reassuringly expensive (8x sparkplugs, 2 x airfilters etc) and that the additional work like replacing the engine earth strap, oil level sensor and fixing the heater blend motor will cost more / take longer so I get to keep the Razzle for at least another day.
I left it at home and came to work in the Smart though. It's looking like it's sold. Unfortunately I've realised the MOT expired in December so I need to quickly get that done before the new owner comes to collect it / finds out.
So in the next few days I may suddenly find myself with nothing but a Fiesta as transport for me, my wife and 3 kids. Smart sold, X5 in the garage and Lotus obviously still in bits in Bromsgrove. Ace.
I sense some shopping in the very near future...
Not even the luxury of a rev counter
