Afternoon mate!! Nice thread. I’ve seen some horrendous things over the years working in garages!! I remember checking a Sales car over one time, I pulled the Drivers Seat Belt out all the way to inspect it and found a section had tape wrapped around it, I removed the tape only to find that the Seat Belt had been cut right through and the 2 parts overlapped and taped together!! 😱🤭🤬. I mean WTF!! Would’ve just pulled apart had the Driver had an accident!! Pity camera phones weren’t around back then!!

I had the cracking wheel problem with BMW, of course they didn’t want to know and wouldn’t acknowledge this type of wheel was not for for purpose. All they wanted was £600 for a new wheel, robbing gits.
At least Ford owned up to the gasket issue and fixed FOC.
Ford were not interested when all four wheels on my wife’s BMAX started to leak air around the valve – which apparently is quite common. I suppose I was one week outside of the 3 year warranty though…. Had to deal with a rude secretary at my local ford main stealer and incredibly abrupt emails from Ford customer service. They lost my future custom over this alone, let alone their handling of my inquiries on the veering steering.
