My car has done 100,000 miles!

I really can’t believe that my car, has now done 100,000 miles! Just to think, that I’ve had him since he was born! Got him way back in 2009! Just hope, he’s still got, a good number of miles left in him yet!

100,000 miles!

Glad my car is back on the road!

That’s my car back on the road, after getting a flat tyre on the way work, Friday night!

Many of you will know, that I should have got to Scotland by now!! I was due to drive up on Sunday. But on Friday night on the way back from work, my car started to make a hell of a noise. So I took it to the local garage Saturday morning.

They took one look at it and said looks like one of the brake calipers have gone. They put it up on the ramps and trying to spin the back wheel and it just stopped!! So they told me, it was best not to drive it!

Just a new caliper cost £209! Then it needed a new break disc and pads. Then add labour to that. It came to a total of £492.62!

At least my car is back on the road. So I can now set off to Scotland in the morning. Some 48 hours later, then I was first hoping…
