My GTV has been at our local garage for about 8 weeks as were waiting for a new helicoil set to fix a leak in my sump drain plug.
The sump drain plug has been overtightened at some point and i hadn't realised thats where the car was leaking from. ( mind you its not totally sorted as there is still a damp patch on the drive this morning - any thoughts??)
As they had the car I got them to do a full service, new plugs and check brakes and do a 'mock' MOT to check out the suspension and steering .
Well its funny but in 8 weeks I had forgotten what a fantastic car this is to drive and when I picked it up I ended up doing a 55 mile trip even though i only live 3 miles away!!
Its like J Clarkson said on Top Gear - some cars you just cannot park up and leave. You just have to get back in and drive them again. This is one of those cars, it puts a smile on your face when you drive it.
What a great start to 2010!
