The forum software does not have a 'men to women logic translator' people   ;)

Good luck with the work your having done Lizzie  :)

Spend your money as you see fit

do what makes yourself happy and then at least someone is happy  ;D

will you be having a tracker? or 24 hour security guard  :-\  (when not in Malta)

No use hiding your car from me, Lizzie - I will find you: but not until you have had that work done, so you are safe until then.....

You're not really in Malta, are you?

............ahhh, that is THE secret.  I am there when I want to be!! ::) ::) ;D ;D ;D ;)
If by Malta, you mean the international lorry park between Maidstone and Dover, then all is well ;D

Close, but for Ron Malta means Malta! ;D ;D ;)

Fair enough, but still think Serek would be better choice  :)



I rang my local main dealer Vauxhall, Eden of Camberley, to enquire on fault check on my wife's Zafira Tourer.

They wanted 75 just for just for a code read, I said I would think about it.

I then bought a full proper Vauxhall specific code reader, not just a generic one for 150. 2 code reads and I am quids in.  :)

Oh, I know tunnie they can be expensive. ::) ::)

Even my friendly dealer wanted 200+ just to look at my apparently "oscillating" brakes!!   Even I said "NO!" and did the job myself with the right results; NO expense! :D ;)
