I'd give it another week to be honest..... you don't want to rush them really.. They will just push it and might miss a couple of minor things that just brings you back yelling and screaming and they fix it and your back there next day for something diffrent....


:D I hate Mechanics... All they need to do is tell you .. " hey it's really going to be a little while to get things sorted"


But be worth the wait i recon!


So how much did you pick up the el xr6 for anyway?
