Even if they do, they don't know it was fixed by a fork lift driver with a senco nailgun ;)

Could have been an insurance repair :D

They'll look at it a know by the quality of the repairs that it wasn't done by a body shop, I mean come on have you seen some of the repairs body shops do paint runs, over spray, old parts beaten straight, thrown together in a rush, I have seen vehicles that have come out of insurance approved body shops with more problems than they went in with :D N

Lol some kind words there lads but i fear that there is no way they wouldn't tell that some form of accident has occurred :-(

There's still some chunks of flesh and blood scattered around see but i figured they'd help protect it against rust :shock: :lol:

The engine tho has not suffered any impact damage at all from the front, although as said it may have been in gear and the guy slammed it etc, can't see that causing drive gear damage but i can't be sure and the noise isn't too obvious at the moment.:-(,

Warranty may hold but my last experience tells me that the tech there is going to use any excuse possible to swerve it, maybe the alignment of the planets on this day means that the sound is in fact perfectly normal?

The only thing that i need the warranty for is if it is a duff injector tbh, don't fancy spending out on them see.

Forget the spoons the noise is a woodpecker!

I'm on it lol, not had chance yet tho been running around all over the place with my legs :oops:
Bloody runners :mrgreen:

The back is full of my stuff and tools (sorry there's no way I'm leaving my van anywhere with my possessions in, more because i lose stuff and blame others for it but it turns up and i apologise to them in my head lol) empty van means i can take it.

I'm going to whip the belts off too because that'll save time I'm sure :-)

Yeah but they rejected the claim, apparently the warranty doesn't last till it's over 5 years old and 100k+ miles.
Nae idea why?

Just been raped financially, it might not have happened if i was pay monthly :roll:

My insurance was 303 sept inc 25 admin
Swap to red quote 265(remaining 10 months)

Alternative quote 333 full 12 months.

Cancel my insurance refund is 200 but don't get new insurance with them is fee of 50 pounds.
New quote is 450 so i pay 250, so I've gained 2 months insurance and saved 15 pounds.

w***.

Yes w*** just enquired about mine 9 months left on the lime to change to billy £171 :shock: it was £230 for the lime
New quote on billy £273 looks like I'll have to cancel it swap the plate over then insure it or they will want another 50 spot for that bugger f*** w***
