2004, 53 plate SRi MOT pass 2 Advisories, oil mist on nearside shock and nearside track rod slight play. I'm happy with that. Its only failed its MOT once and that was its first MOT at VX, the failure was that the OE indicator bulb wasn't orange enough ..... So in my 5 years of ownership the car has only cost me £60 for second hand stock twin back boxes and 2 drop links other than service parts. With a pair of shocks and track rod ends I still find that very acceptable.
Its a good job however that £8500 worth of work was all covered by warranty in its first 3 years
