    Default Tired Vec

    Hi guys , not posted for a while , had a busy last 8 month , but thats another tale LOL
    My car has now done 134k and im getting a lot of noises from the chassis , the front more so
    its sort of makes a boing noise when braking or turning slowly, the steering wheel has also gone out of alignment and ive got the MOT in 4 weeks , should i just put it in and see what it needs or have you any ideras about the boinging noise from the front

    Thumbs up Update

    ... Well this morningwas MOT time ... took it in and thought why , oh why is it so near to xmas , im gonna be shelling out ££££ on it !! . Well turns out the noise? was nothing more than a couple of dry bushes one on the front topstrut and the roll bar bushes , but because there wasnt any play in them , its not classed as a fail , i got an advisory for that and a couple of tyres , but hey ,hey a pass

    its never failed an MOT and now just clocked 135K , looks like i'll be keeping it then .

    today the glass is half full rather than half empty

    Nice to hear it passed. But you say your glass is half full not half empty...........Best to empty the glass then, and fill it up again to celibrate your motor passing another mot.
