Well thanks to a construction lorry, I have just had to fork out £75 for a windscreen...

 

The resulting chip was slightly too big to repair.

 

Here's some pics for a giggle!!

Sadly no, Also i can't be sure it was the load in the back or just some detritus from the road that chipped it...

Just got back from my local stealers with a couple of parts, started to get out of the car when the hail started.
Jumped back in sharpish I can tell you.
It even set car alarms off further down the road.

The stock cooling system only works well under certain conditions anyway

its strange... It gets to temperature, then after a few minutes, swings from normal to cold and back... every so often... never goes too hot!

Does it go too hot when/ straight after you "boot" it/ or sitting in traffic after a hard run?
