Re: What's made you grumpy today?

I've just found out the Bodyshop where my GP is has lied to me... Originally they told me it'd be Friday when I could have it back, now they're saying it's going to be about a week + 1/2 from now!! I hate the sh*tty Ford Ka I've got as a courtesy car - I can't open the boot, and the heater has no temperature option working other than 'blazing hot'... and it's a 3dr, which is just plain annoying... Am not happy

if noise is ok then its HC too high, CO too high or Lambda is out of spec. Could be it wasn't hot enough and the cat was therefore a bit lazy or something else.

Try and get more info if possible before changing exhaust parts etc

If I've gotta put up with it for that long, it's going back to get them to fix the heating/boot for it. Plus I'm considering complaining to my insurance about it - 3 times I was told by them that it'd be ready for Friday
I MISS MY GP!!! I just want it back

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

I learnt to drive in a Ford KA and loved it, then again, I was in there for a hour a week.

Bit grumpy because I twisted my knee skiing today, doesn't hurt when walking/skiing, but scared of putting weight onto it for some reason, also my blisters have popped and it hurts a lot at the moment
