    Exactly. Also, generally keeping it on the road still works out cheaper for me than going off and forking out for something newer (at least thatís what I tell myself).

    Plus I get to mess around with it and get it how I want it.

    Looking forward to getting it back anyway- currently driving a Citroen C1 go kart which they gave me as a courtesy car!

    Wasnít surprising. New brake pads all around and warped front discs.

    Also a lot of play in tracking rods and apparently a split boot on transmission somewhere (wasnít really listening at that point).

    Apart from that, not at all bad apparently- some surface rust (thatíll be the scabby arches) and a coupe of tyres are getting a bit cracked.

    Something like £600 all in. I wonít grumble - if I wasnít moving this coming week Iíd get the parts and get to it myself but needs must and all that! Another year on the road

    Thatís a little bit expensive for brake pads all round and new front discs and a CV boot ? Or are you getting the tyres replaced aswell ?

    And new track rod ends (might even rods too - will check when I pick it up) tracking and of course the MOT cost.

    Got big blue back today- drives like a different van. The brakes work, the steering works.... so this is what it should feel like

    Was driving home this evening on the dual carriageway, wound my window down a crack and my wind deflector did one and vanished off into the night. Balls! Guess Iíll be ordering a new pair!
