Typical- I didn't have a car! Plus I didn't know about it so that probably wouldn't have helped either! lol
Haven't been to one yet don't even know what to expect!

And at what point does he stop being a family friend and start being the bloke who broke your car? :D

Surely that will be more awkward?

Martin has a good point (had a family member do some welding on a car for the mot once. Charged me and the welding failed the re-test. He then refused to look at it again because the welding was obviously fine. Needless to say, I went to town and we aren't exactly on speaking terms now)

At least if a garage screws up, you can go mental without busting up the family chums ;)
