So tyres fitted yesterday, feeling all nice and driving with a big grin! Had my car booked in for an MOT today at kwikfit...misses gets them online for £25 somehow so I thought it would hurt as they won't really be doing any work on the car. Anyway it failed. I was shocked! Apparently there is a 'massive' oil leak on the front nearside shock. Numpty changing the wheels never mentioned this 'massive' oil leak. Either he is blind or kwikfit are exaggerating.
Anyway got to get it sorted. Eurocarparts sell the sachs for about £97. Is that a decent enough brand and reasonable price?
What really bugs me about this is that the car has only done 33k miles and yet all 4 shock would have been replaced. the rears were changed at 24k miles after they failed and now the fronts have gone at 33! I'm all up for maintenance and like to keep my car in perfect working order but things need to last for a reasonable amount of time!!!
