So... New car back in August. picked my gal up on Saturday lunchtime, got a mile down the road and the clutch failed..!
Got car into garage this morning and got a hire car to cover me for Christmas, assuming the worst; timescales wise, not expecting to get it fixed before x-mas...
Result! not only can garage get it done by tomorrow, saving me £100 on the hire car, but the (majority of) the bill for work is being covered by my warranty! (wasn't expecting this as clutches are not covered by warranty as they are 'wear n tear' items, but as it was flywheel failure which has destroyed clutch, it is covered!!)
£900 worth of clutch, dual-mass flywheel and associated labour, actually costing me £40 (plus £35 for hire car)..! BONUS!!!
Still, £75 down at wrong time of year, but better to have to find £75 from somewhere than £900!
the relief flowing through me now is immense.
I've actually met Chris n shook his hand. This fact is still causing slight issues in my trouser dept....
