Re: Service B cost?

Think I pay £38.50 a month just ticking over? No length of plan required. Just told me to ring up whenever and cancel it.

New A45S

Saying that maybe not the latest. I’ll PM you.

Cars booked in for the gearbox noise in the new year. Noticed it after the service and thought best get it looked at now rather than later!

Re: Tyre talk...

PSS are really good on the car as well though as had those before my current Dunlop’s That is true...

The car is with Merc for a service today and as ever I looked forward to their delightful safety inspection video. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181214/7ab8255d7ce36a1bb32cb389231da95e.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181214/9fb202b1add87fe8538a979d4ca624eb.jpg This time, both rear tyres ...
