Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

At last, little car is running again, new front suspension, full service, cambelt. Phonic wheel played hard to get (reset), but has now behaved, so all is well.
Been off to the garage at the bottom of the road and had its front wheel alignment set.
Running sweetly. Been enjoying driving it again, at last, soft, gentle, quiet, calm.
Big smiles all day.

Having actually watched Grand Designs now, it was so weird briefly seeing the back of my parents house on the TV, lol! Also, 1 of the guys from Maple who was working on the project was someone I used to go to school with, lol!

Not quite the highest mileage car I've run...my 1st punto got to 82k..but certainly the oldest car I've run where everything still works like factory.

Touch wood...obviously.

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

Daffo passed his MOT, no advisories, largely due to my identifying badly adjusted back brakes and Desira picking up my bad fitting on the back box that caused the emissions to fail. Both jobs straightened out at half sensible cost and the car returned on time.

Another brownie point added to their tally which is good as my 90HP Panda is actually an 85!!!

We will see how difficult that is to resolve. If you have a 62kw Waze I am afraid it seems you will have been stitched up if you thought you bought a 90Hp model. We will see how this pans out. OK I know its 90PS. Its now pretty clear why Fiat are finding it so difficult to give me an answer to my query. Hopefully they will make me smile tomorrow by starting to straighten out the mess in a sensible manner. I have hope......

Erm nothing fancy...it's done 77777 miles and like most modernish cars it has a trip A and trip B. I actually use trip A to monitor fuel mileage but I zero'd trip B at exactly 50k miles. Ever since then it's just counted from 0 to 999.9 repeatedly...so its showing 777 miles and 7/10ths

I resisted revving it to 7 grand...given I plan to see 88888 and probably 99999 before we're done with it..

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

Credit to Desira HQ for a very speedy and reassuring response to my complaint. Half an hour to get a response when the person I was writing to was on holiday is better than good. Decent service is something to make one smile!

Its clear they believe I have a 90PS engine too. Lets hope they can get the log book changed to reflect this and that Fiat are incorrect about the motor type!

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

OK, I consider myself a cynical old git these days, but I still have retained a sense of humor, so, without bursting any bubbles I'm a bit sceptic on a thread quite recently. So many questions shall we say, nothing nasty, infact quite amusing, just doesn't ring true for me. I could be wrong but no big deal, just me & my thoughts.......
