Lenny, you know Ive had a bad back for years now, well mate at work has trouble too and his flared up, he didnt take no for an answer and insisted on a scan not a ex-ray of his back, from that scan they sent him to specialist so a Mr not a doctor and he says its the best thing he has done. within two weeks had surgery on his back as his S1 and S2 was being compressed by his spine, 3 weeks later he was back at work. dont get me wrong he is taking it easy to build strength and confidence in it but he says for the first time in years he is pain free, has slight niggles but 99% better than he was. he is trying to get me to get stuck into my doctors for a referral, point here is doctors offered him tablets that didnt work just took the edge off, once past the doctors stage even if you pay private for the scan you are then at the Mr stage and they know there stuff a lot better than a GP, not dissing a GP but in these cases you need to go higher.

Oh boy lenny, that's terrible, no more sitting on the toilet knocking one back for you, what a nightmare lol...

Faced back pains previously before and my word it's shattering crippling pain, on the same level of being kicked in the sack, the kind of pain you can't mentally block out, feel for you

Sorry to hear about thenback lenny. Been there too, I had a prolapsed disk in 2010 was laid up for 3 months hardly being able to walk for 5 mins before crippling pain, had an operation and i helped alot, but still flares up if I over do it. Another option may be to fuse the vertabrae, but you may find it gets better to a point where you can manage it ok without the need for that, you kind of used to it -knowing what sets it off etc and trying to avoid those activities or do them in moderation.

around 11-12,000 excluding purchase of car itself mate,
Some parts sold and reinvested though so say 11,000euro including shipping of parts and labour,
dont feel it adding up, Genuine facelift ST wheels were 545 euro a piece with nuts centre cap and tyre, dpf internal removal and piper exhaust 985 euro lowering springs, adjustable camber bolts and laser alignment 560euro full zetecS body kit 1075euro spraying and fitting 500 euro, and so on,
Took three years tipping away at it aswell as some overtime in work.
