Must be a location thing, as people in Royal Tunbridge Wells can afford it. ;)

There does seem to be a lot of sympathetic Volvo owners on Twitter here indeed. You may have something there. Next time I might drop it into the Brixton branch :D

this is an every two year service though right?

Nope, I have two services a year, so the bi-annual becomes annual. I also have checkups every now and again in between anyway. She is one pampered car.

I will have when she gets dropped back later. Mind you, they've always been pricey. I had two pieces of small plastic break in the headlights, the little bits you adjust the height with, over £1,600. That stung!

Those Swedes like to extract the urine don't they you could buy 45 complete headlight units for my MR2 for that price and still have change for a pint on the way home.

Main dealer. Great service and always busy. They seem to have a lot of loyal customers.

When did they change the spelling of gullible to " loyal " or is it a TW thing :D

What's most annoying is that they've now put their new car prices up enormously, what was a £25k car a couple of years ago is now £35k+. I enquired why once to a salesman there and he said that they have just upped the prices purely to tempt people out of Audis, Mercs and BMWs and into Volvos.

You wonder why they do that surely it could loose the customers as present customers may not be able to afford the new price, in the present economic situation offering quallity at a more reasonable price would get them more custom surely.
Another reason along with as I said on Facebook that the yoff of today think my MR2 is cool to stick with an older car :)

Evening all, long time no speak. I hope 2012 has been kind to everyone thus far.

I've received a work experience request from a photography student and feel certain there are some pro's here that would appreciate free help on a shoot. This student is looking to work from anything between one day to ten or spread over a couple of months. She lives in the Romney Marsh area and has her own transport. Should any pro photographer on this forum need some help, please contact me and I'll pass on her details.

BTW I'll be reviewing a Maserati in a couple of months and will need to take it to Dungeness... I'm certain Jonthan will put the word out for interested parties to come play.

The thing is most of the running gear is Renualt, the body work and suspension parts are Volvo. When I had a Volvo 460 for a while, the local garage used to service it, it was sold off when they said the suspension leg/ front wheel bearing needed changing and it was going to cost more than the car was worth.

Already done, only issue is the size of the footprint is quite large

How about just the axles from a skateboard. Im sure i could manufacture something to go between.

Anke wrote in post #13765655 (external link)
The service doesn't take that long, they collect my car in the morning before they open and drop it back after they close. They'e always been expensive.

Id do it for half that. :)

let's fill it up then.

here's a joke that even I found funny :lol:

A Native American Indian introduced me to his wife and said she was called Four Horses. "Wow, beautiful name, what does it mean?" I asked. "It means nag, nag, nag, nag".

:lol:
