I actually expect he'll find the key, the car only went from inside the workshop to the parking lot outside before the key was lost.
    not great... my last car, my mechanic managed to lose the locking key for the alloys..

    Mercedes Vito going for a service tomorrow, 420 But I've asked mechanic to go through EVERYTHING, all the fluids, filters etc, and I trust him to use the correct quality stuff. Turns out the van isn't showing on Mercedes Benz's system, so likely the previous owner used some back street garage not on their books. Van's running great, and I'm determined to keep it that way...

    Doorbell went earlier. The mechanic handed me the car key he'd mislaid, so all is good again.
    Repeat after me 'I must not look on ebay! I must not look on ebay! I must not look on ebay! I must not look on ebay!

    Into last 6months of my lease now so actively(on line) investigating if I will change cars.
    This difficult to find cars suitable. Doh.
    Too Many low cars but don't say how low etc. All those partial and full electrics don't help

    If you were shopping for a secondhand motor it would probably be easier. I honestly don't know what I would look at in new cars.

    I have never bought a new car. New cars devalue the moment you drive them off the dealer's forecourt.

    Measured for a garage window last month, customer had an old Honda 400/four under a sheet. When I commented, his wife said "Do you want to buy it?" I didn't answer, but I have thought about it since. Going back to do job tomorrow, so I'll have a better look while he goes to put kettle on. I remember them being pretty nice little bikes in their time.
