That's great news! Even better that you're home and not sitting over seas somewhere having to wait.

fantastic news, I bet you are excited!

Spoke to the mechanic this evening and there is one small wrinkle. Although everything is running fine he reports the steering pump has a small leak and he would recommend changing the pump. After waiting this long, waiting a few more days won't hurt, especially as we are heading to the UK on Monday anyway.....a little more patience.

Martin, I've was driving a 310 when the PS pump belt broke and I guarantee it's no fun trying to steer and brake with no power assist! A leaky pump is probably not quite as severe but probably not far behind on the pucker factor scale

Good thing he found it now rather than when you're out on the road trying to source a replacement.

Probably feels like they are just toying with you now! "It's ready to go." then "Oh wait another issue." Like you said, you've waited this long so whats another few days. I wish I could see the smile on your face when you finally get to get in it and take it for a spin!
