Of course the Croma had a range of 130 miles this morning - now having done 60 miles in it, the range is still around the 100 mark although I may drop a fiver in it tomorrow morning

I dropped the wipers down - not sure if they will fit, I only bought them cheap after someone posted a thread on here

You like the croma then?

Been driving alot in a Brera,fast but (probably a sign of middle age looming) I prefer the croma.

If my memory serves me the wipers that Aldi were selling only fitted the drivers side and there wasnt a compatable size or shape for the passenger side

re: Failed MOT

Yep, I think you are right - the symbols on the box signified one side only - ah well, will see what the garage make of them, not a lot probably

Getting to enjoy the Croma now - found the electronic brake today, as I played in the multi-storey - quite weird taking your foot off the brake on a hill, and the car remaining stationary.

re: Failed MOT

car is back, new plugs are in, and I have one of those new-fangled MOT certs as well.

Had to give the Croma back though but I did put another fiver of diesel in beforehand

Will update the servicing sticky as well

Exactly - I will probably do that, even though I have a main PO about 30 yards from where I work, so fairly convenient

re: Failed MOT

AArgh!!!!

Driving home tonight, with CC on as usual, and thought it felt a bit warm in the car - it was set to 17 degrees, MONO, yet hot air was blowing out of the passenger vents.

Got home, and investigated further - tried all settings, Upper/Middle/Lower vent positions, different temps, etc - and the drivers side was fine, yet the passenger side always warm/hot, although the direction was ok.

Had a search on here [as one does ] and it seems this has happened before! It may rectify itself in the morning, but just wondered if the garage has done anything to upset this?

I had a look at my warranty paperwork, and it doesn't seem to be excluded
