Get a list of what needs doing on the car and get qoutes from other companies.. You can save a serious amount of money hopefully.



I hope so at that price.. if not, i'd be asking for it doing for free.
Service an Abarth.... lovely inflated costs lol

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

I need some stuff for my car, but the only bloke I know who stocks any Fiat parts is on holidays it seems, both his phone lines just ring out.

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

Stressing over exams
Struggling to revise because i keep getting stuck on questions etc.
Car fuel warning light is on at only 337 Miles
Motorway driving has just killed the mpg. I get around 60 mpg normally but only 40-45mpg on motorways.

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

Can't expect anything else with a little engine. My bimmer is the opposite, 25-30mpg round town and 44-50mpg on the motorway.

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

Lol if anything motorway mpg should be higher than urban.

Stop over taxing your engine and you will be fine.

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

My grump:
People joining the motorway at 40-50mph and skipping over to lane 4
I saw them join the motorway then whoosh!
All four lanes. I only just missed them and the car behind me barely missed them also. So close. moderate traffic at the time. lucky there wasn't a crash!
