Well good ol DW looks like he's come trumps on my sickly Spider;
My car is being returned tomorrow afternoon. It took a little longer to sort out as the power steering needed a look at too.
Bits sorted out are:
Roof hoses all replaced and tested, working just fine apparently
Interior as good as new (not sure if they replaced the carpets or cleaned them but Iíll be having a good snuffle around in search of oily whiffs when I get the car back)!
Seats all clean and spotless will have a good ol look tomorrow
Steering is quiet as church mouse; apparently after replacing the Steering rack, Hydraulic pump and oil reservoir, they traced the fault back to 8 quids worth of sticking valve!!
DW has also asked for my GFs receipt from a recent shopping trip so he can pay for her damaged clothes
All in all a good result, whilst its been a bit of a pain and Iíve not had my car to hoon around in, itís not Davidís fault either yet still heís managed to do a brilliant job in keeping me happy and fixing my car. all power to the man, I canít recommend him highly enough
Go buy your Alfas from David Whitton at Piccadilly!!!
