Cracked windscreen! :( and having to wait until next tuesday for it to be repaired

That is shocking!

I was surprised yeah! But I guess a few people may have damage from the storm so that might be putting things back? Who knows with these things... luckily it's just a hairline crack but I'm driving like an old person because I'm worried it will spread
Oi! Less of the 'old' please >:( I am sure you are not supposed to say things like that :( I know I am really old but still drive a bit quick, at least according to swmbo ;D  A bit worrying since I reckon I go really slowly when passenger seat is occupied ;) - flat as a kipper, never lift!

Yes.I still drive like Stirling Moss on the Mille Miglia 'tho I'm 65.No ,that's not true but when I get my hush puppies to the floor I often don't remember the places I have been through anymore.Just ask the wife,"was that Worcester we just went through?" "Not sure, dear,bit of a blur.You must slow down as my spectacles keep falling off! Isn't it time to buy that nice Rover 75 the neighbour's selling?" ."No chance .I think I'll get the Competitzione when I'm 70! That should get the blood circulating and get the boys very envious!"

wheel came off while driving. I'd covered about 20 miles after my new brakes were fitted

needs a new disc (being fitted tomorrow), wing, wheel refurb, mud flap, piece of decal, arch liner and paintwork blowing in...

Did they not refit yours wheels properly or something?  Glad you're ok, gutted for you.

Had a friend do the brakes, clearly not enough torque as I've had this set up for 2 years and no issue; however there is not enough thread really so  :-\

After every wash...spend ages drying to find that over the course of the day, the mirrors inner swimming pool empties down both doors leaving streaks..

I know exactly what you mean - That always used to annoy me.  I find that by repeatedly pressing on the plastic mirror base where it mounts onto the door, in the area where the water trail starts from, you can encourage the trapped water to come out.  Holding a damp drying towel or cloth over the area while you do this also helps to draw out the water.

I tell ya what really really pisses me off.... Got a car less than a month old, and the council have decided to grit 3 miles of my trip to work (50/60mph road). So I drive really slow taking care to not get paint chips..then all of a sudden twats coming the other way at 60mph flicking stones up and chip index my door glass!
