my new to me but very old fiesta needs an MOT/service. I find most garages quite frightening and feel that they can sense my fear and up the prices (I hope that does not offend anyone). Any recommendations for decent but cheap garage preferably in the bermondsey square end of SE1.
I'm interested that you can call a Fiesta of any age an 'old banger', a term which I reserve for cars of Morris era or before. How old does a Fiesta have to be to be called 'ancient'? Mine is 15 yrs old and I think of it as newish, whilst being aware that most people wouldn't.
i'm new to bothering about car things, having just passed my test. can anyone enlighten me as to how to find out about parking off tower bridge road area? i know im edge of congestion zone and guess it will be a nightmare? i dont have a car yet, but am hoping for an 'old banger' fiesta...
to the LMJJ - i thought old banger was a generic term for any car older than about ten years. i went to rw autos and they were very nice but needed quite a lot doing and so ended up quite a lot of money but got a friend who knows about these things to check the bill and he said it was actually very good value. at one point i thought i had been charged £55 for a new light bulb and this confirmed all my fears about being an obvious 'pigeon' for car mechanics. then realised that i had misaligned the bill and had been charged £1.50. made me realise that a paranoid personality and poor attention to detail make for a bad combination. anyway i can recommend them and the main man was a definite hottie.
