New Year and New Year Resolutions.

Postby MikeT66 » Wed Jan 10, 2018 4:08 pm

For me, Puma/car-related are…

‘Bad’ Stuff:
Service/Front Brake Pads+Discs in early Spring.
MOT in April (shudder… I hate that time of the year).
Tidy up (again) bits of the bodywork.

‘Good’ stuff:
Get a new re-trimmed Steering Wheel fitted (current one won’t last another summer of sweaty palms, I think).
Trip to Bicester Heritage Flywheel Festival in June.
Oulton Park Gold Cup in August.
Hopefully some impromptu drives in the Lake District/Yorkshire Dales.

Anyone else promised themselves anything?

Not Puma related since I don't own one, however:

Bad Stuff:

Whirring drive noise (bearing/tyres/driveshaft/cv joint etc)
Clutch replacement (slipping worse each day now)

Good stuff:

Bad stuff

March/April - book her into the garage to investigate maddening creaking noise from front left suspension. May as well open the wallet further for service and new rear trailing arm bushes (advisory on last MOT) at same time...

MOT in May

Good stuff

March - bring her out of winter hibernation for some spirited driving from spring onwards!

May also treat her to some decent new tyres to replace nasty ‘budget’ ones

:-( Yeah... that's how I found the extra attention needed on the bodywork.

Bad stuff - not really. It's very dirty. I could probably do with something bigger and a bit more comfortable for my commute.

Good stuff - big fun.
