  1. Many thanks, you are right 👍the two sizes I got were for the 2.0 & 2.2!! so T150 & T180 same size, sorted!
  2. Hi Gary, it looks like you have the T180 18'' wheels? if it is like mine the 18'' standard wheel T180 has larger discs than the T150 I think. I have jut started checking discs/pads for mine and that is what I am finding at the moment. More info will be along shortly I'm sure to advise on the exact size?
  3. Sorry to hear your woes! I doubt you could get one other than Mr T as you will need a new chip etc. and it will need to be coded too I should think. No help now but I recently took out car/home key cover with my insurance, £17 per yr. key cover up to £1000.00 worth considering in future as car keys are so expensive to replace as I fear you are about to find out ☹️hope you get it sorted ok. Spare key use for now!
  4. you could start with these people? https://www.autovillage.co.uk/used-car/local/north-west/lancashire-incl-greater-manchester/manchester/ Good luck finding one 👍
  5. Hi Liz, go to top right menu click & drop down and find forums- scroll right down past all model clubs and you will come to 'for sale' section, car sales there.😉
  6. 😉No probs!
  7. I don't see any mention of chamois leather clean, the subject title is 'Leather cleaning' so assume he means interior leather of his car? in which case Auto glym are good products. I stand corrected if he means a chamois but I would never soak it in washing up liquid only car shampoo that I use on the car. 🙂
  8. Good result Peter, glad you got it sorted and back on the road again, many more miles of trouble free motoring to come I hope! 👍🙂
  9. That response is disgraceful,not even bothering to address you by name! a standard 'we do not care' response. I agree with Jim, county court, however I would suggest a letter first to the customer service director with details as stated & if no satisfactory outcome (for you) defo CC. It is easy to do online very cheaply. Good luck with it! 👍
  10. Good luck Peter & hope all goes well with it 👍😉
  11. Return it and get your money back? Just hope it was not a private sale?
  12. That's grim! Why not take it back to the garage who did it 4months ago and let them loosen it off/change it for you?
  13. Sorry to hear of your woes but after what you have written and the comments the garage have made I would defo return car and as you paid by credit card? you also have your CC provider to turn to too for help with refund. I also think that because they are suggesting you have damaged the clutch/gearbox how could you be sure that they would do a proper repair (at their cost!) they already know you will never be a return customer? All they want is not to have that car on their forecourt! Good luck with what ever you decide to do about it.
  14. I do not think that is a legal repair? Too close to side wall and should be vulcanised? was it done by a proper tyre company?
