    Default Vectra Estate Cdti MOT time again

    Nearly got to 58k and its main dealer MOT time again so checked around car as noisy front end over Kent Potholes, knew I had a spring broken on front so busy couple of days for this nearly 75 year pensioner, lol
    Picked up drop links two front springs and brake pads all round when Euro Car Parts had the up to 65% off weekend.

    Yesterday afternoon fitted near side
    Front Spring
    Drop link
    Brake pads
    re-painted the red calipers
    Slept Very well plenty of aches and pain but hey ho
    Today fitted offside
    Front Spring
    Drop Link
    Brake Pads
    Re-painted red calipers
    Even more aches and pain but all done for today
    Sunday To Do list
    Wash Vectra and Smart Car and wife's Kia AWD Sportage

    Paint inside of tailpipes with Red Caliper Paint
    Wife hoover all cars out and apply leather polish
    Clean all Internal's of windows
    DA polish all three cars
    Dress Tyres
    Apply Alloy wheel polish
    Finally go online and order 4 new tyres for it Avon AV5 tyres fitted 25k ago both edges of tread on all tyres have badly cracked. Tyre fitters says its because I don't drive the car enough each year 5-6k lol
    With wheels off the inside of the wheel edge of tread has actually worn or fallen off with splits starting to open up where the edge of tread should be
    Hopefully it will pass MOT

    Car has always gone to main dealer since it was 6months old..
    Plus on Vauxhall Drivers Club I get 50% off MOT, 25% off service and 25% off parts.. plus they know the car and every yr the Sales guy asks if I want to sell it. Think the mechanics like it as it always ends up with 5--7 miles on the clock when I pick it up.
