My car is missing from todays pic. It's in the garage having it's MOT re-test. It failed last week because i was told it needed a new driving rack as well as other bits and pieces. The quote for the work was ?500.
Luckily, I was urged by my boyfriend to take it to his friends garage. I followed his advice and it is lucky that I did as I discovered that the driving rack was not at fault, rather the track rod end needed replacing. Not only did his mate repair the track rod end, but he also sorted out a 'short' with my back lights, replaced all the wipers and even straightened out the dent on the wheel arch that appeard on 7/7/05. All this for ?51!
I am officially the 'Luckiest Girl in the World?'.
Oh, and by the way, it passed the re-test! The garage didn't even mention the steering rack when i went back a second time.

You see, this is why everyone needs to know a mechanic (and a plumber, bricky and electrician).

I'm worried that mine'll need a load of work at some point, and it'll cost me a fortune, so I'm determined to learn some basic mechanics before then so I can do a bit myself...
