lads, a while back we had a chip-in for some poor person to have some decent drink-ups and hopefully score with a fit euro type, surely this is an equally deserving cause. Captain Greybonce here is a top chap, a newish dad, Bro's before Ho's etc, if we chip in we can keep his banger going until the next mal-maintained part explodes.

:thumbup: :thumbup:

I unfortunately have zero idea how to set up these 'justgiving' type things up, so will have to rely on the (presume Northamptonshite based) inventor of such websites to actually do the deed, then I can spare Mr Salt & no pepper some Scheckles.


Am I getting cash or a fit euro type?

You're very kind, but it's just a bump in the road that comes with starting your own business. This time next year Rodney.


from me, it would be £
from others, it would be Fit Euro type as he certainly ain't using it (snigger)

may I ask, what business is it you is starting ? get a lease car then !
also, sell yourself your laptop for £1000 which is what I've done for each business I've had. its a wizard legal wheeze to reduce tax.

They still want £1,000. Not worth it I think.

A garage offering anything is a miracle really- they're usually shits about it.

They were really good TBH. Even finished todays conversations with "I understand you might want to negotiate a bit more"...

If you can get a good rebuild/recon at a decent price it might work. Depends on the engineering, the installation work, quality of parts and labour and costs.

There are no "runners" (pre-conditioned engines) or second hand engines available ? It might be a short term solution.

Modus operandi for business UK. Poor quality and terrible customer relations.

You have to look hard and then you will find exceptions. I've only used 2 garages in 30+ years and they are great. Occasionally they screw up but they tell you and then get it sorted fairly.
