A couple of weeks ago a dirty great stone did it's best to make it's way through my windscreen.

Checked my insurance and I have windscreen cover - phew.

Phoned a certain national windscreen company and told them exactly what my car was. Three days later they turn up but don't have a windscreen trim - doh. So off they toddle.

A few days later they turn up again - all seems ok. They take the old windscreen out, buggering it up on the way, go to fit the new one and it won't fit - the wallies have got an R33 screen despite being told it was an R34 in the first place. So now my car is stuck at work with no windscreen.

So they phone their depot and tell me they can't get one for 7 days. So I have a brainwave and phone Abbey - they were able to source a windscreen much quicker and my car was back on the road on Saturday.

Cheers guys

We're not all cowboy's :( Honest

I work for a tyre depot in Bristol and hear many horror stories about other tyre depots.
I can only really say that if you can find a depot run by car enthusiasts ur ok but unfortunatly thats getting harder to find and is giving us all a bad name:(

Not bad thanks. Hoping to pack it off to Abbey soon for some tweaks. Got a couple of annoying buzzes to fix. Otherwise it's great.

Gets "interesting" in the wet though !
