broke down today on the way to work the starship Oakie, 200k miles and counting....new pics! - Page 4 Icon_cry , big thanks to bugmania from E38/Vzi who happened to be passing and was good enough to stop and give me a lift into work, cheers dude!

Called out the breakdown cover after work and their opinion was it was the fuel pump - although could still hear it priming. Unfortunately apparently the car was "too low to recover" (quite disappointed they did not give me a copy of the form stating this) so i had too call in the services of workmate Dave and his trusty one hundred pound Volvo "Fred" the starship Oakie, 200k miles and counting....new pics! - Page 4 Icon_lol :

Volvo is mid way through its new "look" as its a bit of a regular in the banger rallies, most teams scrap their cars after the rally but fred has done italy and back twice now including the Stelvio pass etc as seen on top gear the starship Oakie, 200k miles and counting....new pics! - Page 4 680462

It was some local firm from around the bishops stortford area sent out by the breakdown service...i made it very clear when i rang them how low the car was.... the starship Oakie, 200k miles and counting....new pics! - Page 4 Icon_rolleyes

that picture ^^^^ is so sick

i wasnt technically just at the side of the road, i had coasted into the car park or a large indian restaurant so had a ready supply off food and drink and a willing mate with a tow rope in attendance the starship Oakie, 200k miles and counting....new pics! - Page 4 Icon_lol

annoyingly the car is still broken as the firm who were getting the part for me have messed me about so much! I need the lift pump that goes inside the fuel tank so rang this local place who quoted me about 200.00 (after i had checked several times it was the in tank pump they were looking at!). GSF then quoted me 21+ vat so i thought the other place must have been wrong and rang them back, they didnt admit to being wrong, just said "oh, ok we will do it for 24 then" - could they have really been trying to mug me off for so much? the starship Oakie, 200k miles and counting....new pics! - Page 4 Icon_eek

I thought ok, will buy it from them anyway as i could collect and without postage it was cheaper plus emma would not have to wait in for it, they could apparently definatly get it for tuesday. I rang tuesday lunchtime and it still was not in but was being sent by courier so they would ring me when it was in. By 5.30pm still no call so i rang them again and was told it would definately be here today and they would ring me when it was in....so today i waited.....and waited......and waited before finally calling them and got more excuses and it will definatly be here tomorrow the starship Oakie, 200k miles and counting....new pics! - Page 4 Icon_mad the starship Oakie, 200k miles and counting....new pics! - Page 4 730194 ! Yeah right! I told them not to bother and ordered it today, next day delivery from GSF so fingers crossed.....
