Just received a call from APS… the car is ready! I’ll be picking it up tomorrow morning and with 5 working days left (about 600 miles of commuting miles) it gives me plenty of time to make sure it doesn’t fail on the way to the Czech Republic :)
I’d like to express my biggest gratitude ever to Nathan, Ed and Andy over at APS for sorting me out in such a short time with no notice at all.
Having just received the quotes to get the gearbox replaced again, I’ve decided that once it has been repaired and has seen me through the Czech Trek, it will be up for sale. Owning a modified car is not without its pitfalls :(
Oh, and happy birthday to me ;)
Can you flipping believe it? With less than 2 weeks until the trip to the Czech Republic the gearbox is broken again!
Just wanted to say: THANKS! Despite the attempts of Royal Mail to sabotage my cars clutch fitting, they persevered and got it ready with plenty of time to spare for the trackday. Go visit them and buy something expensive
After two weeks I have to admit defeat and give up my quest for a 6 speed gearbox to replace the broken 5 speed. Once again Dave comes to the rescue by offering his old 5 speed and Sachs clutch for a friendly price, so tomorrow the car will be towed/pushed/driven to DS Automotives where they are going to do the work. Also asked them to replace the front brake pads as one of them is bordering dangerous. At least I’m now going to be ready in time for the trackday
