So i wasted my Saturday evening trying to get rear lights working that
aren't even fitted, then flatten the battery and fianlly to really make my
weekend, got out of Disco in pub carpark to be greeted by all my mates
pointing and laughing at the silencer....that was now sat on the floor.
ATS wanted £82 for the bit from the middle box undereneath to the outside
world. Great me thinks, order me one up then. Went back today to have it
fitted, to be greeted with:
"What Land Rover exhaust bits"
A quick look round the workshop revealed a pile of shiney new exhaust bits,
but none that looked remotely like mine. Matey puts Disco on ramp and gets
underneath. Much sucking of teeth follows. Turns out they have ordered the
wrong bit. Upon closer inspection and more teeth sucking, i am informed
that '....have to order the middle box as well as it looks rusty amd may
fall apart when i start taking the old pipe off'. Back into office and they
quote me £201 for a tail pipe and middle box. Promptly walked out and said
i'll think about it.
Paddock want £62 for what i think is the right bit, Part number NTC7246. Is
this the bit i want?. Disco is an M reg 3.9Efi V8. Failing that it's out
with the welder!!.
