    Default MOT Success!

    Took the old girl for her 3rd MOT this morning. Having fitted the 2.8 V6 front brakes, new rear disks and pads, new engine oil (0w-40), new brake fluid, new front tyres in the past month, checked the springs and driven at high revs over the weekend to clear out the soot in the engine, I was fairly confident she'd pass, and this time I even dared to watch as the mechanic prodded and poked her. Still, the brake test on the rollers is enough to make you wince. But, she passed with flying colours without even any advisaries - which is good now that buyers can view past advisaries on the vosa website.

    On the way back, by way of a reward for her, I stopped off at the Vx dealers to enquire about cost of new rear coil springs (can't find any aftermarket ones that don't lower the ride, except no-brand cheapos on ebay) and a pair of new back boxes. Was pleasantly surprised at the prices, £109 for the pair of springs and £250 for the pair of back boxes, with trade discount. Didn't buy them just yet, but might have to get the spanners out again soon and get busy fitting
