I'm not complaining, ive been feverently spending it!
Yes the exhaust was blowing, the tyres were MOT Failures , the rack boots were free moving both sides (I assume MOT failure), previous owner did only own it for 6 months following a 8 year Sorn, And to be fair he did change the fuel pump, wishbones, track rod end, cam belt., wiper motor . He put it on eBay for £850 and I paid £870.
Just been running through recent bills on mine thinking what needs to be done in april when it comes out of storage for the winter.
It had all belts done in april 2011 and service with plugs and discs etc in april 2013.
Nothing last year...so come April 2016 i wonder what to do given that since the belts were done in 2011 I've done 5000 miles and 2500 since new oil went in.
