Argh. My car needs new tyres. With Swan Motors closed, I tought I would take it to the main Mitsubishi dealer to get some new tyres and check out a few minor problems while they were doing so.

Having taken a day off work, travelled to Botley and back twice (to drop off and pick up the car), I find they have fixed the minor problems but not actually changed the tyres as such.

I've also just noticed that one of my headlights is playing up.

Thus I've now got a car with two serious faults and no time to get them fixed. I'll have to try to get the tyres changed in Reading tomorrow.

Failing that, anyone got any good ideas for quick garages in Oxford? My current best bet is taking it to the Kwik Fit on the Horsepath industrial estate.
