    Have you paid back the social yet for the hardship loan for the boiler? If not, see if you can play up those back problems for a motability vehicle.

    Don't believe the control module is dealer only. Somebody somewhere on the interweb will sell you one. All you have to do is fit it. You may need to buy a little box to configure the CAN bus to inform it that you have change the control module. No big shakes though.

    Not a hope so long as you can walk, WITH the aid of a stick/crutches/other aid more than 20 metres.

    A 2010 car should be able to do more that 120k surely? Even a Ford.

    You've been getting it serviced properly?

    I remember a time where advice on the forum to contractors was not to park their Porsche or Maserati in the client's car park.
    I'm alright Jack
