One of them dilemmas where you think yeah, I’ll get one but ends up sitting in the garage for ever collecting dust or worse getting damaged! Do you get it incase you need it, or wait and find there aren't any when required :? They aren't going to be manufactured indefinitely though are they? Once d...

Re: Heater Motor subsitute

Personally, I'd be wary about using incorrect parts in the Capri. For the sake of £20 I'm not sure I'd want to take the chance.... :agree: Andrew. £20 diff is just not worth chancing it. This guy reckons its fine but how long has he been using it for ?? I personally would always be prepared to pay ...

Re: Worth complaining

No real surprise then - the renewal has come through and rather than being frozen it has gone up £55 so I phoned to query it. Hmm said the chap we should honour that promise if that's what we said, let me check your records. Lo and behold he found reference to freezing the premium and its now gone ...
