That's probably where you went wrong!
I hope it's nothing serious and you get to enjoy her again very, very soon.

No, no, no, no, no.
That's all wrong. Give her a stroke, tell her you love her. Find out her name and tell her she's beautiful. She'll be back on the road in minutes if you do that.

Dad reckons it's something wrong with engine, smell and sound makes him think its bad :/ Looks like the garage will be getting her back sooner than they thought.

Matt I've been at work and have missed on this thread. Really sorry to hear your bad news. Hope you get something sorted very soon. If the dealer repairs/replaces all the broken bits are still happy to carry on with her?
