    I'm the same, doesn't matter which vehicle I always stay and keep an eye, and as above, the MOTer can show you the issue.

    Mind you our last one I spotted a problem before he did, one of my CV boots (Jeep) had broken a clip and was popping off on lock:Doh:

    'Get a clip on that pronto', nice MOTer, wont let bad out but sillys that'll get sorted quick he's fine with:thumb:

    Too squeemish to stay and watch. Sleepless nights for weeks before. keep going round looking for simple things, but still have palpatations for 40 minutes while testing.

    I hate that time of year, yet he is a reallly nice and honest guy.

    WORN, PITTED & CHIPPED front Discs. mainly on the inside ....:Eek!:
    £374. later [ decided to have them dealt with] incl MOT costs.and all dealt with....
    Yes the MOT place had come accross it before even with such a low mileage.

    LoL I have got one in November, four in December, two in January, and I am not looking any further than that and most of these are LGV tests a lot stiffer and a sight more expensive.

    all the best Rick.

    Oh and well done on a pass.

    Its a nice feeling to have a crisp MOT certificate in your hand.:BigGrin: My Joy is normally tempered by realising that this also means the tax and insurance are due too:cry:
