Dropped the car off for a 12,000 mile service. brake fluid change, MOT, Geometry set up and a power test this morning. Parr have lent me a nice little Mini Cooper for the next two days which is quite fun.

However everytime the phone rings I am thinking it is going to be Parr with some bad news.

I hate Service day :(

Back in the day when I were a lad and at school, the coolest car in the world was a black mini cooper with blacked out windows and minilites. When Mrs Eff decided she wanted one of the new minis, or should that be MINIS, I tried to persuade her to spec it in that colour combination. Sadly she decided she wanted a green one. :(

I'd avoid answering the phone today if I were you. Good luck.

Had a phone call today from someone pretending to be from Parr - Sir There appears to be a problem with your RMS and your shocks appear a little tired etc etc. There's me thinking £££. Then I thought "No one at Parr has a Welsh accent" It did have me going for a minute or so.

All I will say on the subject is "Daz you are a complete w*nker" and as for Mr Sait watch your back :D

Hopefully will get a phone call from the real Parr later today

Car back and running beautiful. Change from a £1000 so very happy. This is the second time I have used Parr and once again have found them to be efficient and friendly. I see no reason for me to go anywhere else in the future.

Glad to hear all ended well. Although sounds expensive for minor service, how much was the geometry?

£250 for Geo.

Included in the bill is £160+Vat for a coil pack

What's a coil pack? :?

Something to do with the spark plugs, a cover of some sort? Three of the six were cracked, another very common fault on 996's and Boxsters. So I asked them just to replace the lot.
