    Here's a little test. I came across this invoice when I was searching through the paperwork for my Zed. The previous owner must have owned the car on the invoice as the chassis number is different but it got put in with my stuff.

    Can you see what's wrong?

    The vehicle on the sheet is a 1.9, and there are 6 spark plugs. :wideyed:

    1st prize to you Brian. I'm not sure the previous owner realised they'd been ripped off:(

    @Mint it could be for your car with the wrong details in, the rear tyres supplied are 245/40/17s, not ones you would necessarily fit to a 1.9.

    Agreed Brian, but there are other thing which point to the 1.9 like the mileage on my MOT certificate not tying up with this invoice. I'm sure there is a mix up somewhere - maybe on the garages system but without knowing the actual garage or the previous owner it's hard to check.

    The mistake was you brought a 1.9 instead of a 3.2!

    Ha - No it's definitely not a 1.9, as I changed 6 spark plugs at the last service. I bought a 2.2 but perhaps you're right Mark do you fancy a swap?;)
