Well finally bit the bullet and put the car into VX Skurrays in Swindon for it's first MOT, got down at 8am and was met with very friendly reception staff.

In it goes, as i sat quietly in reception, 30 minutes later i get the news

Passed, no failures & no advisors either. how chuffed am i. i was expecting at least a couple of advises,but nothing, car is in a1 condition.

managed to blag a 3 day insignia test drive while i was there. just need to wait for the dealership to get their elite demonstrator diesel, and i'll report my findings with photos.

so overall big smiles all round today
