Re: Windscreen cracked.

I've just had my screen changed by my Sheffield OPC for reasons of warranty security.
They said they get in a specialist ( Autoglass?) to change the screen,but they then reprogram everything.
I paid the OPC then NFU paid me back directly in to my bank account,minus a £70 excess. No problems.

We were told it could be 2 hours. ( Hot saturday teatime on world cup football day !)
Fortunately my son was driving past on his way from work and " re-homed my wife and dogs."

Tracker activated disabling car...

On Saturday,just before the England match,I popped into local Garage for a Newspaper. It was a very hot day so I left the engine running with Air con on (wife and 2 dogs in the car.) When I returned to the car the engine had stopped. It wouldn't restart and I saw a momentary Gearbox failure warning....

Re: Dent in my door :(

They gave me a BMW 116d last year as a loaner.
Not so easy to get in and out of and you seemed to sit so low down. :roll:

Re: Some E xciting developments coming 18/19

I had to read that twice.
I thought 99 Euros was a bit dear for only 2 hours charging.
I see you got the tesla model X thrown in for free... ;)

Re: Huge Cost for Wheel Alignment

My OPC quoted a special price of £150 after they'd informed me my macan was slightly toeing out. A local garage "lasered" mine for £60. Nice cup of tea and biscuits while I waited as well. :) So they must have checked the alignment to know it was out and then wanted £150 for essentially five minute...

Re: How to remove center wheel cap?

I use 2 steel meat skewers with the ends bent over about 80 degrees.
( I like the sound of the 2 small allen keys though....Didn't think of that.)

" Subaru loaner".

We had our first service combined with oil change today ( the computer had brought up both just short of 20000 miles.) All carried out to a lovely standard. Our loaner was a 718 boxster.... nearly impossible to get in and out of ( My fault ...arthritic knees.) But the sound...just like an old Subaru...
