    Just put both mine in for a few bits and bobs, not there MOT, but still they needed looking at. £400 worth of repairs between both of them, and I will still have there MOT in Feb, to look forward to.

    With the £40 per hour labour rate that mechanics up here charge, I have honestly considered buying an old banger and doing some weekend mechanics on it, just to learn how to do a few things myself. Figure it could save us a fair few quid.

    mines a 'y' reg so it is a old banger! lol i dod try to do most work myself but with limited kit its hard to do a lot of it, all the basics get done. got a good garage thats not over priced that i take my van to, once you find a good garage they look after you as you take van and car to them, plus they get to know it to.
