my first costly service!

Well, I've had my T-reg 156 for exactly a month now and thought it high time she went in for a service. There have been one or two niggles these last few weeks what with the cold, so I thought it best to get them checked out. Having just spoken to the garage, I almost wish I hadn't .......

Turns out the grinding noise I heard from the breaks, was in fact worn discs and pads...Rather than have no breaks, I decided that job needed doing asap, so I'm currently waiting for the work to be finished at 12.30pm. A full disc and pad replacement all round, along with a general service and one or two other minor point has just cost me the best part of £600 Given my currently financial state, the shot radiator I didn't know I had will have to wait....any ideas what that might cost me guys?!?!

And to think, the car only cost me £1250 a month ago

Re: my first costly service!

radoator is about £120 for the part and a couple of hours labour, There should be a guide on here somehwere as it's an easy enough job, no special skill/tools needed.
