I thought I'd give the car a final dealer service before moving to a local garage I trust or sell the car. 06 plate CDTI SRI Pre-Facelift. Service 220 quid....OUCH (major service) then I gets the call.....
2 rear tyres
discs all round
Rear road Springs.......
Oh and wiper blades that i only replaced 3 weeks ago!
I meant to do this before the warranty expired, but never got round to it.I think she said another 600 quid for the repairs.....I said I'll be in touch. I need to shop around for a better price...
So yesterday I collected the car...Put the key in the ignition...SPANNER Light! Not happy....They looked the car over and didn't find the cause. The fault has gone away.

I had a look at the discs and they don't seam that bad. Less than a 1mm Lip on the front. I would be curious to put a vernier on it. Tyres do need doing, I jacked the car up and yes the spring has gone:
