My daughter at 17 passed test followed by Pass plus. 3.5k to insure a 1.0 Micra. So we waited until she was 18 then 1050 to insure her own Peugeot 106 own policy with us as named drivers. This years renewal at 19 is 650 with 1years ncb. I don't think there are to many short cuts.

Thermostat bypass hose wins it for me, but both are deal breakers. Your family inherited any double joints you must have developed PD?

Oh, I'd forgotten about the joys of the bottom hose and the by-pass hose.

I would imagine a carpet would be more to blame than roadside repairs.
