    Yep, sounds spookily similar Colin

    Whoah stop right there Colin, never at any point did I realise you were not one of the chosen people, friendship definitely over...…..not!

    Even though you clearly have poor taste in football, your good taste in Jaguar and Jaguar car ownership transcends all
    Car is of to the wheel specialist tomorrow for wheel refurb, so will be gone for 3 days

    Hope you have good news tomorrow re yours, assuming they've slotted her in nicely ( I know they're rammed as always )
    Cheers

    Lol yes, unfortunately so. Always good to have a bit of light hearted banter about football and never one to take the it too seriously.

    Good luck with the refurb, yes will hopefully hear later today or tomorrow how mine has went.

    Cheers

    This has to be the first time that I have ever heard inter-Glaswegian football "discussions" being described as "light hearted banter". Whenever I am in Scotland in a venue when this topic arises, I run for the hills!

    Lol Mac, I hear you..
    There are those that take things too far and then those that go way beyond too far unbelievably in a lot of instances. There is a growing number of those who take it less seriously, really support their team and want the win, but it's not life and death.

    I have friends who support the wrong team but don't hold it against them lol. We have some really good natured banter along the way in the lead up to games, during and after ( god forbid your team loses or you get it tight )

    I dropped the car off this morning for the wheel refurbishment and should have her back on Wednesday ( 3 days !! ) hopefully with some shiny round wheels with anthracite inserts

    She was washed n cleaned on Saturday, so other than a fine layer of dust (don't know where its coming from? - please don't reply with "the sky" ) was looking good.

    I know some of you will make sense of the following, I took pics of the car from front, side and rear, as well as all 4 wheel centre caps, also a pic of the odometer showing mileage and fuel status.

    I also had the conversation with him about keeping the interior clean, and also to note the pristine centre caps and be sure not to lose them or damage them.

    The locking wheel nut was placed in the cup holder and he was advised of this, all good...….

    Drove the X type home making a mental list of what was needing done to her as I listened to a few of the knocks / bumps etc from the rear suspension

    Roll on Wednesday

    ****** stupid clocks, tick tock tick tock

    Taking the X type in tomorrow to have her checked over with a view to having some suspension work and other bits n bobs done, then hopefully in to collect my car in the afternoon

    No doubt go through the usual process, have a walk around and check all is ok, interior clean? Centre caps all present and correct, locking wheel key etc etc and of course the finish on the wheels, fingers crossed

    Passed the time a little easier by renewing the hinges and bolts on the 2 sheds, add some woodstain, then a wipe over of some of the gutters and woodstain on the soffits as well....oh joy of joys!

    Lol, can't argue with that, I resemble that remark Rob

    As I said earlier too though....

    Always find it a nervy time, especially with a new supplier. It's not just about the job on the wheels, it's the care they're taken of the car whilst in their possession too.
