At last years MOT I needed a CV boot... this year nothing- sailed through. The MOT tester (a petrolhead and the same bloke who remembered my car last year) asked why I was considering something new added that it'd easy double the miles and why not keep it?

Thats all folks :icon_biggrin:

ditto, mines passed all 5 mots since I've had it, but thats because I spend money on it regularly. Just bought new disks for it and its due a service end of this month. (Only seems like 4,000 miles ago I last did it!)

That was taken on Friday night at 5:40pm, everything was closed, It was like a ghost town :icon_biggrin:

We returned the next morning at 9am, it was the same then too, I guess we should've looked at the opening times :biggrin:

Thanks hora, It's a UK 2.0 S-turbo, and it's ran faultless for me for the last 3 years (16,000 miles:icon_biggrin:), I had thought about trading up this year, but i'm going to wait until I can afford a 2.5 XTEn or an STI. :rock:
