Imagine what the total would be like if you didn't do a lot of work yourself (like that big gearbox job last year)


Went through a few windscreens!

With my Carly it was gearboxes (it was on it's third
)

Windscreen and tyres mainly.

Nice to know it's had starter, oil pump, balance shafts and chain, fule pump and recenmtise disks and pads.

I thnk you can see that the costs have come down in the last 2 years.

forgot to add the DI this month and a couple of sets of tyres.

J 601 JAB in Kidderminster before becoming
H 1 VJH (personal plate, matched initials) in Pinvin/Pershore and then
J 38 WOA in Norfolk

Hi all
I have just started looking at the Saabscene and i am glad to see that i am not the only one who throws lots of money at my Carly just to feel, plus upsetting BMW's. Mine is a 91 2.3T

Best regards Sandman
