First time poster after making use of the forum in lurking mode for ages.
Just got rid of a rotting, rusty blue NC1 (06 plate) 2.0i that I’d had for 3 years and replaced it with a lovely shiny white NC3 (14 plate) 2.0i Roadster Sport Tech. The old car lived the first 11 years of its life in the north east, not very far from the sea, and it had terrible corrosion underneath. I knew the time would come where it became unviable to repair, and it did just that!
As I live in Loughborough, the new one has been to Thrussington Garage in East Goscote for tracking/alignment and total underbody seal including internals of sills/subframes/chassis rails etc. It also had a small bit of repair work done after I rather embarrassingly dropped it in pouring rain and broke the front bumper…
Then on Friday last week the windscreen cracked after being hit by a stone on a dual carriageway. I’m hoping I’ve got all the bad luck out of the way already.
Hope to make more use of the forum and I might get to a couple of local meets if time allows.
Tata for now,
