They picked it up on Tuesday, examined, quoted and ordered the parts Wednesday, work completed this morning. Online JIT ordering FTW.

I’ve used a non-BMW dealer garage this time. Not a huge difference in cost but a quicker turnaround- our local dealer workshop was quoting up to two weeks.

I expect it's geographical, round here I'd have to wait for them to order a 10mm spanner in, never mind the parts.

I don't understand. I don't understand why a credit card made out of titanium is a good thing and I don't understand why a credit card geting scuffed is a bad thing.

We’ve got several big auto parts dealers around here, and the garage I’ve used is quite big (even though it’s ‘local’), so I think it’s probably just geographical luck, as you say.

I am out of yoghurt, so had to soak my oats in milk, like an animal.

Cats never play with expensive things designed for their amusement. I learnt that at a young age when we bought our cat a basket. With 4 beds, and so many pieces of furniture, what would he want with that?

I've had a week of inadequate sleep and a tough time in the office, I've got to be in central London for 8:30 tomorrow morning and do three interviews, the last time I rode more than 40 miles I was off the bike for six weeks with a leg strain, we haven't been on the tandem more than twice in the last couple of years and we're doing tomorrow nights Fridays ride to Kings Lynn.

What could possible go wrong?
