....is perched on my desk on account of the car having been handed over to West London about an hour ago for its annual....

.....this is going to be fun to see what they turn up with (not!)... Sad
...the card of my "service advisor" is by the phone together with my bank managers.

Why didn't you get JZM to service it when it was in for the brakes?

Thank you Mr Poon, it can go to JZM once a year, for geo work & any consumables, OPC for standard servicing. Unfortunately the extended warranty is a must in my mind. Rolling Eyes

Well JZM did the brake fluid, so they shouldn't be anywhere near that. I know they went all over the car when it was in so shouldn't be anything other than a standard service, which is why I'll be interested to see what they pick up.

The Mk1 bit you've obviously missed the threads & pi$$ take on. Would appear I have a Mk1 side sill on one side. Was picked up by JZM a few weeks back. No damage to car, no respray, but for some reason has a Mk1 sill on the passenger side.

Good luck Rob, WL were good for my major 4yr service, no bendover moments and i'm guessing even they will not have the audacitiy to recommend new brakes with what you have at the mo!

Right can put that jar away for another year (unused thankfully). Nothing needed at all.

"Sir should consider having his geometry checked as there appears some uneven front tyre wear" "Erghh, no he shouldn't was set up 3 weeks ago by JZM".

Phew... Smile

By the way Sundeep just ring them up & they''ll extend over the phone if it expires within 8 weeks. PS: following on from one of your previous threads...how many speakers have you got in the car? I thought you'd mentioned just 2 or did I misread?
