    Used them before Steve, but a lifetime ago when I had the Audi, so around 15 years ago

    Spoke to Mandy who was very nice and helpful and confirmed al of the above AND checked, set up a local appointment at the local branch for this Saturday, so a little earlier too

    Happy days

    As with all these fitters, it depends on who you get. I got a complete numpty.
    Fitting glass is their forte. Trim, clips, electronics and the torque specs for the wipers is something I will do myself next time.

    Have to say Jim your thread never ceases to involve a good read if you miss a few days! Glad you enjoyed your break and the photos look good. Car getting pride of place at the door.

    I had to take Janis’s focus the other day to take some stuff to the dump and she had to use the XJ, just so happens she passed me as I headed out, and have to say the old X350 did look real nice heading toward me as it came out the junction all freshly washed and wheels done...

    I'm sure you're right MrKis.
    Glass is their business, everything else is a by product. As always though ( socially distancing as best I can ) I'll never be far away whilst the job is being done and checked afterwards as thoroughly as possible.

    Thanks Glenn was a nice wee weekend away, very enjoyable but amazingly tiring considering it was supposed to be relaxing, don't think we've really got the knack of that lol

    Not surprised you like the look of the X350 coming towards you, she's a cracker and you also happen to be more than a little biased lol

    Had a call from the cops today, re the X type damage, they're still chasing Tesco and it was just an update. It'll probably come to nothing, but as we're still poking / prodding etc nice to know they're still doing whatever they can, even if it does come to nothing.

    Cheers

    As some of you may know, I've had a small chip / crack on my windscreen for a wee while, time to get fixed

    She's booked in, but I thought not really that bad and so gave it a little tap the other day, the crack opened up to around 3" or so, definitely needs replacing.

    Anyhow, I left early doors this morning and it was a little cooler outside ( heading for a quick haircut and then a wee run down to Gourock, before dropping by the office ) and so heated seat / steering wheel activated and also MAX setting on the heating.

    Of course this initiates the heated screen >>NUMPTY<< I'm driving along and a few minutes later that 3" crack widened across most of the screen

    I was worried about driving, waiting on the whole thing going, but she held together, just didn't look great....




    Anyways, she's booked in for tomorrow, so should all be good.

    On the way back, I decided to drop in to see the guys at Prestige Jaguar for a wee catch up, driving in I just caught a glimpse of this....



    I thought to myself, I know THAT Jag, that's Colin's and had an idea...I'd take a picture and WhatsApp him with it, I see your car, know where you're at etc

    I get out the car and casually look around and see a guy sitting at the coffee table of the outside snack bar waving, lol, there's Colin, coffee in hand. It was good to catch up and had a wee chat, before he got the call his car was done, passed all A ok, with just a couple of pounds to pay

    Colin headed home and a chat with Ian / Dougie for half an hour or so before I'm on my way too
