Is Boris Dead? Did Boris the LR3 finally suffer his final breakdown?

Boris, BreakDown, Landrover, LR3, texas

An excruciating new chapter in the Book of Boris (no relation to The Book of Mormon)

Is this the End?

Driving to a client office today all hell broke loose on the dashboard… every warning light blinking, alarms sounding, star-trek doors whooshing open and closed and phasers set to KILL! Engine computer was reporting suspension failure, HDC failure, break failure, everything failure…

after swearing loudly I managed to quickly pull into a Shell Station which was conveniently only a hundred yards down the road.

Is Boris Dead?

Splutter

Boris quietly pulled up to a pump.. before spluttering and dying.

Insert Key and absolutely nothing happens.

Pop open bonnet (which is a hood to you Americans) and only a faint whiff of electrical burning smell. gulp

I’m typing this after it was towed off to a local garage for investigation.

sigh

If I had started numbering my vehicle breakdowns over the last two years I wonder if this one would have put me into treble digits?
