I'm due to take the family to Brittany. We sail Sunday early and mid week my car went into the garage. Because it's a heap I asked the garage to give me a quote before working on it...
700 odd quid!!!
What's more, they said it would cost at least a grand to get through it's next MoT so just had to go. As a result, I've had a stressful week fitting car hunting around work with the clock ticking towards departure! Finally got sorted:
45mpg and roomy enough to change in in winter. £2k so not a bad deal I reckon. Very helpful trader too.
PS Swell looks promising for the trip too.
