... was another big bill!
So the motor went in to Motor Tech in Seven Kings. Hadn't used or heard of them before however the mechanic I usually use and my usual tyre shop recommended them. So the car was booked in for a crank pulley.
The day came to drop the car off, so I dropped it and asked the guys to give me a shout once work on the car was completed. Once I got home I got a call from the garage, stating the waterpump needed doing as well as the tensioner, as well as other things... So I ok'd everything. When I got a call a couple of days later the bill had sky rocketed up from £280 to £770... My eyes were literally watering!
The bill was paid and the car drives really well now, warms up properly and all that.
Only problem now is that the alarm keeps going off... Nuisance!
