It was service time this month and, to make matters worse, it was the big one, the one that demands a tick in every box on the job card (new gearbox oil, brake fluid change, carbon filter thingys, etc, etc) before they'll allow it to leave the workshop. The service manager was kind enough to warn me the bill might end up around £1900 - provided there were no extras. I've bought cars for less than that in the past - and they were good ones, too.
