    Default Another year, another MOT.....

    ..another pass.

    Straight through, not even any advisories. Fifth MOT the car has had now and fifth pass. Not bad for a car that's now seven years old and nudging 85,000 miles. Well, it has been rather well looked after.

    The only thing the guy pointed out to me as I was watching them doing the MOT was that one of the rubber exhaust hangers on the rear of the centre section was starting to split. More for my info than anything else. Next time I'm under the car I'll pop on a new one - sure I've got one in my parts box. It'll take me longer to jack the car up than to replace the rubber hanger! lol

    With the BSR Stage 3 the one thing that I learnt once I had it was that it's a good idea to give the car a good warm up before dropping it off, then it passes the emissions no problems. I forgot one year and they had to fast idle it for quite some time on the ramp to get it to get through the test!

    So, that's me for another year. I can't believe I've had this car so long - never had a car so long or to such mileage - but it's still running very nicely and I still love it and, more importantly, it still copes with everything I currently need from a car - lugging photographic equipment around, having two kids etc. etc.

    Work car was gonna go in for a MOT tomorrow so I can sell it, but yesterday the power steering rack decided to give in and fill the bellows/gaiters with the fluid instead

    Always a good day when a car passes its MOT without a problem...
