The Cheapest Trip to Reg Vardy Ever?

So after my discovery of another blown bulb at the beginning of the week, today the Focus went back into Reg Vardy for the second week in succession.

Unfortunately, it was confirmed as another blown bulb, again necessitating major surgery to the front of the car to change it. However, unlike last week, when it came to paying the bill, the service agent said that they were only going to charge me for the parts. Whilst they could, and I guess some dealers probably would, try to argue that the second bulb blowing was just coincidence, she said that they probably hadn’t checked the car properly when they were done last week. So they handed me a bill for a grand total of 78 pence, plus VAT, coming to a total cost of less than £1. Just the kind of garage bill I’m happy to pay!
