"New"? What does that mean?
Very true, if I haven't got some black Hammerite knocking about I'll probably do just that.
My degree show is on Friday of this week, so after that all hands on deck to get the car sorted out. We seem to have organised another Europe trip in August - France and Belgium definitely, maybe other places.
Definitely need to get the knocks from the front investigated, whatever is up with the nearside rear wheel bearing, and the water loss issue. Garage for some of those things I reckon. Other than that, can't wait to get driving on some French back roads again, and attempt to make my brother (who is coming on the trip) stop being vegan by waving fresh croissants at him.
