Well just finished the repairs on the S3 after finding a huge pot hole a couple of weeks ago. still fighting with the council to no avail. Think its a lost cause, they're not interested as they claim they were not aware of the pot hole in the first place. Didn't want to lose my no claims bonus so did the work myself. New wheel and tyre, Shock, spring, track rod and undertray. Have managed to plastic weld and repair the bumper for the time being as I really cant afford a new one so soon after christmas. Still awaiting a final invoice from work but have been assured i have got a hefty discount on top of the trade discount we get already. I'm expecting a fairly large bill to be honest, but could have been a lot worse and just glad to have it back on the road to be honest. Lets hope pay day is a good one!
