It isn't what you asked for, and more importantly what you were promised...demand a full refund.

IMO legally it's classed as missold.

Friend of mine wrote her Corsa off. Going too fast around a bend and she ploughed into a tree. She'd not had it long...already had 2 flat tyres (which she didn't know how to change...)

She's just decided on a Fiat 500. Which is the same platform as Ka's are built on...so was the Corsa

You might want to consider giving us some prices - I seem to recall a rather long thread in which you refused to give a price until 10 people said they might be interested in purchasing.


Cut the cr*p and just give us a baseline price - if you have bulk buy discounts available - tell us what they are!!


We're a pretty straightforward bunch on this forum and don't like people fannying about not giving us basic information when they're trying to sell something.

I'll be honest, I don't like them when they're just plonked in the middle of the grill.

I like them to follow the lines of the bodywork - like your white lines or the foglight position.

I may be slightly biased - but that's Lenny's fault :D

One more GCSE to go!! After tomorrow morning, I'll have three months of summer holidays, 3 trips abroad and my 26th birthday in a week. Should be fun!! :D

I know GCSE's are stressful, but I didn't realise they added 10 years :blink:

Mud flaps are a very worthwhile mod!!


Since fitting mine, I've not had anywhere near as much crap fly up along the body.  Especially important when the council keeps insisting on "surface dressing"


The genuine Ford ones are very easy to fit and to be honest, aren't all that obvious (only a real nerd/spotter/member of this 'ere forum would likely spot them).


I got mine on ebay quite cheap.  Just avoid Allen Ford - they have a few different ebay user accounts...




Here's the set I bought: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/351366583123  - about £20 cheaper than Ford, and £10 - £15 cheaper than most other online sources

#487613 I Really Do Not Understand How They Work It Out???

Posted by SeanW on 19 May 2015 - 03:41 PM



They'll realise the error and charge you for your refund :P


Seriously though...

I think they look at your details, put it all in a big hat and pull a number out of their bottoms.


Then usually multiply that by your age cubed, add 47 and triple it.

#487482 Whats Wrong With Kwik Fit Anyway? - Where Do We Start!?!

Posted by SeanW on 19 May 2015 - 08:57 AM

Had an argument with them over my AC.

Took it in for a regas (special offer). It was working, just not very well.

They hooked it up to the machine, drained it and did a pressure/leak test and it wouldn't hold. No obvious signs of a leak...soo they drained it again and pulled it back around for me.

(The technician was an 18 yo lass who had just returned to work after doing her AC Tech course)
"It won't take it, mate. We can't see any obvious leaks - I reckon it might be your compressor!"
"Right. So, now what?"
"Well, we can get our Master Tech to look at it for you"
"How much will that cost me?"
"£35 for him to do diagnostics and maybe £450+VAT for a new compressor"
"No thanks."
"Don't mind, we can book him for you and..."
"No. My compressor is fine."
"I don't think so - I tried running it on the way round and it won't kick in!"
"You say the system is empty?"
"Then it won't work will it?!"
"It should do - should still engage the compressor!"
"And f*** the compressor? No. The system has a low pressure auto-cut off...
"But it should still engage!"
"...that prevents the compressor engaging with no gas - because the gas also has the oil in it!"
"But it should still engage!"
"I'll take it somewhere else..."
"Oh. Well, there's no charge"

You can probably guess what thought I had there...

Went round the corner later that day, 10 minutes before closing and they did the leak test twice (I explained the above and the chap tried his best not to say anything lol). Filled it up and whaddya know...it worked perfectly!! Popped in a week later for a quick pressure check - perfect!!
