Yeah it will be interesting to hear what your dealer has to say about the problems considering they are identical to mine. I have said I want it in for a whole day, they can test it as much as they want but it aint coming back until its been rectified, I dont want to sound like a 17yr old learner driver when reversing it.

I did it the other week, going round the roundabout and changing into second and keeping my foot on the throttle and the clutch on the floor, i was slightly scared, considering my driving test is in two weeks !!

It does seem very odd. I have been to all sorts of garages for all sorts of reasons many many times. I have never had my business turned away, not even for one day! Fiver says that if you phone them up tomorrow morning pretending to be someone else, and you say you want to buy 4 new tyres, balancing, tracking, and an exhaust, they'll book you in, either today or tomorrow! or at least within the next week.
