I commute weekly to Milton Keynes for work and some of you may have seen I had Radiator problems last week in my Yellow Spider, I managed to get it home to Somerset last Friday. So I took the Blue Spider this week.

On Tuesday (in rain) the wipers decided to stop working. Used my phone to find a local garage, who suggested I ring Days UK Ltd - an independent Fiat & Alfa Specialist towards Newport Pagnell. at 8:10 in the morning, Dave Days, the owner immediately said I should bring the car in for them to look over. Luckily the rain had stopped by then ;)

The premises looked very clean professional, with several courtesy cars outside.

I spoke with Dave (who runs a GTV V6), he sounded very knowledgeable, and gave me confidence that he knew what he was doing. He did say it was probably the motor, which are pretty much unavailable new. He got one of his lads to run me through the rush hour traffic into central Milton Keynes

I spoke with them early afternoon with the (bad) news that the linkage had worn/ seized, which had overheated the motor - needed a replacement. I had already told Dave I had a 'spares' car in Somerset, so, after looking at the weather forecast for Friday Eve, which was dry. I decided that I would chance it without wipers tomorrow. So they put the old bits back on the car.

When I got to Dave's site to pick up the car, I realised I'd left my wallet in the hotel, and with embarrasment, I had no means to pay, nor had any ID!

Dave was not flustered, and I promised to ring in the morning with my card details

Whilst I'm sure it was not a large job - he only charged by £35+VAT

So, I will be using Days MK Ltd next year for servicing/ problems, whilst my work contract is still running

Recommended - Thanks Dave ;)
