That's what I was thinking, just a shame as the family have been using them for 30 of years. Just feel a bit let down.
Time to enjoy the car now over the summer. Fingers crossed for the MOT in August!

Great news! I still love that car! Looks stunning. As for the garage, let it go. You are happy now so why take a step back and get annoyed with them? They'll only make you feel worse with poor excuses etc. Sometimes these things happen with garages used for years, they grow old, get complacent and take on technicians with no savvy.

If you've recently previously had good service, I'd be tempted to pop in and let them know what happened.

Fantastic, glad to hear she is thinking sweetly again for you. The best thing is just not go back to them again and move on now. Now hope you get some pain free motoring and really get to enjoy her, looks great on your photos

Although this does make sense and could be worth a polite word^^

TBH with the poor service you have received over the years from your long time garage, I'd just walk away, unless you wish to tell them why you are walking away.... (If they are friends rather than just a garage etc)

My folks had been using their local man for years, until it was proved that they failed to replace something that claimed they had changed - how do I know it wasn't changed - because it was filthy and covered in 20+years of crap when it failed and not shiny and new as I was billed for!

My dad then simply stated he wouldn't trust them for anything other than tyre changes, and that was that!

Thanks for the advice and comments chaps. I did call the garage back, suffice to say it didn't get me anywhere. However, I had to do it, it was just building up inside until I let them know. All done now though. There argument was that I've paid to have the leak stopped and pipe replaced, any other work would have been extra.
Since it's been fixed I've done about 200 miles of driving, mainly in lower gears listening to that exhaust popping haha!
Must the throttle cable replaced for the next job.
