Car was all OK and Service Contract covered everything, which is just as well as it would of been over £800 otherwise :!:

They pointed out the Exhaust Pipe clamp being missing again, but they now know after I told them, it's not supposed to have one to allow heat expansion otherwise the Exhaust System would blow up :lol:

They have now made a note on the records :!: :!:

Next service not due for another 12 months or 10,000 miles, whatever comes first =D>
