So I've decided to use these folks just to give the car a once over (Wife won't get into a second hand car till its been 'professionally' inspected!?!)

Fingers crossed,

DS

I'm sure you don't need to get it professionally inspected, the wife doesn't need to drive it after all wink

Just collected the car...

On my gosh, what nice people! They looked over the car, put it on the diagnostic and ended up confirming my suspicious of a leaky exhaust manifold is the cause of my engine bay start up smoke....and only charged me for the replacement coolant reservoir cap!

I'll be going back there for a belt change next year!

On and there was a 20V sprint blue (on a T plate) and a pale (moon?) blue 20vt on a W plate in for a battery change as I collected.

They don’t, already asked!

The remove the drive shafts and shuffle the engine block in the bay...
