So I've decided to have a little competition, what do you think I'll be charged for an MOT on a well looked after 2004, low mileage Subaru Impreza? The closest guess wins the mechanics obviously unused bollocks, or some Lynx...
Was reminded of a classic Viz moment:
June Spears taken for a £6,322 ride by her local garage.
The largest bill for fictitious work carried out on a woman's car by garage mechanics was one of £6,322.88 charged by Joskin Bros Motors Ltd. of Stevenage, Herts. (GB). Calling in for a routine service on her one-year-old Peugeot 305, Mrs. June Spears agreed to pay for, amongst other things, new trumpets (£725), cracked gangle pin (£1,785), realignment of main glib shaft (£2,268), new grommets (£112), set of hexagonal tag nuts and dangleberry adapter (£35) and new piss-take valves (£120). No work was actually carried out on the car during the six weeks that it spent at the garage but 4000 miles were put on the clock and she later received a speeding summons from Italian police.
