I am so p****d off

Hey guys,
Got so pissed off today.
Couple week ago someone from council came to my house, and told me that they will carry out some work on my street. Due my house being private they needed permission from me to start work. So I did sign form. Next week they started massive work around my area. They doing massive work inside and outside. My house being private, was left out, but anyway i am not boded, they council work is shite anyway. So couple weeks it was bit nightmare to drive through street.
Yesterday they started next door neighbour house (semidetached), they build big massive metal frame around next door house. So came home from work today, could not wait til i get my SKY on, due added some extra chanels last night.
So came home, and no signal on SKY! Because of this f***ing metal frame, my receiver cant receive any signal and its only tv source i have.
Rang council 5 times, been promised that it will be dealt by end of day, and nothing happened!!!
Nothing will happen over weekend so no TV and i dont know how long this frame will be there, last house they did it took 4-5 weeks.
Felt like get rope, tight frame and pull it down with my car!
So far i washed my car, valeted inside, after rained, washed again.
After washing car, decided to put air con on to check if still white flakes blowing from evaporators, it blew like never before in 2 minutes i had nice winter scene inside, so had to valet inside again.
Shit day for me today

this even worse: if you have warranty, consider yourself lucky. Surface oxidation of the avaporators, needs replacing, dash out job, my car will be in dealer for 4 days.

Hope you get this sorted mate!!

Got up today no Sky, had to go to work, because was dead bored at home.

Regarding evaporators: recieved email from BMW UK
Here is replay to my email:
I am pleased to hear that your vehicle has been booked in for the the required service to get this issue addressed. I can assure you that should the
dealership determine that it is a manufacturing defect, then your goodwill
request will receive the full attention of our Customer Service Manager to
assess whether we will look to make a contribution. When considering a goodwill request, the vehicle's age, mileage, purchase and service history will all be taken into consideration and the decision communicated directly to the dealership.

I am sorry that you have needed to contact us again regarding this issue, however, I hope that the above information has been of use to you.

If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me

I hope it will not cost fortune, i hope they will not charge me for 4 days labour. If bill will be over 1k, will leave car at dealers and report it stollen

There's been quite a few people with the 'white flakes' issue - as you said, 'surface oxidisation of evaporators'.

Do a search on here.
I can't remember the outcomes, but some of it must have been due to manufacturing material problems, and hence covered under warranty....

Four days labour + parts sounds bloody expensive.
New aircon?

Best of luck..
