I'm booked in. I'll report back on how it goes. Quite a few on the old Facebook that have used fixed so it seems reasonable.

Sounds correct. And ouch but most of the recommended places have a waiting list.

Hi mare, what did you have done exactly and what parts were used? Would you also mind sharing how much it set you back? Cheers.

I didnt realise there was such a wait for Mr Vanos so sounds like I need to get mine booked in with him ASAP...
Out of interest did you bother with oil testing beforehand? My indy is doing oil service today and I've asked them to bottle up a few hundred ml of the oil oil for sampling/testing. Looks like I'll have 6 months to get it tested.

Ok thanks - I hadn't heard of Fixed Auto Services but may consider them as I'm Leeds based. Probably just as easy for me to get to as Mr Vanos.
Did you have to book 6 months in advance with them?
