    Bah - two rear springs for me and two tyres that were on the markers.

    Not too bad.

    Ditto on my 7 yr old Vec last Dec. Passed with advisory about slightly corroded brake pipes.

    Glad it passed.

    I'd get some hammerite or similar on those brake pipes now, to try and prevent any further corrosion!

    i took an escort van for an mot once, and the pipes were so corroded they burst on the brake testing machine, and had to nurse it home with no brakes! wouldn't be good if that happened on the road coming up to a junction or similar
