just been up to the garage to see how my car is getting along baring in mind i was supposed to be picking the m.o.t cert from them today so that i could tax it . the f*****g front end is still not finished ( no wings no bonnet no headlights bumper hanging off and no side skirts ) . the strut tops still havnt been painted and still hasnt undersealed the car like i asked the car is exactley how it was when i went up there last thursday and he assured me it would be m.o.td today (already a month late) and to top it all off when i pulled up there he walked straight past me totally blanked me then f****d of in a car saw his mechanic asked why my cars not finished he said i would have to ask the boss when he got back in 2 hrs time . wtf. im just about ready to start cracking some f*****g skulls . NOT HAPPY

That's piss poor customer service!

Ring/visit them every day for a progress report. They obviously can't be trusted to work without supervision.

Good to know where his priorities are

Make a comment along the lines of - at this rate, that will be finished before my car.

Whenever i have an issue like this I always want to get into the mechanic etc, but then i always have a fear that they will do something to my car which will ruin it in the short/long term,
Maybe im just a little crazy though, but it always plays on the back of my mind
