    Default Road spring broken (mot)

    I could'nt belive it, I checked around the car myself, £165 for mot / supply and fit front o/s spring. Its only a 06 plate, is this normal or is the pr~#k (never liked him) having a laugh?
    Anyone had this problem. I could imagine on Large 3.2 but this is a 1.8vvt.

    try the search button mate. Hundreds of broken spring threads.

    110 quid for one spring seems a touch steep though

    it's the way they forge them nowadays, they go brittle after a bit
