    You're lucky, mine failed. Broken exhaust down pipe and imbalance on rear brakes. Never mind, will be something for the apprentice to play with tomorrow.

    most mechanics i know treat their own car/van like the cobblers wife.....do as little as possible, as no money to be made fixing your own vehicle

    I need the staff Tootles, I just can't do it all on my own. We have another member of staff starting a week on Monday as well. And far from "paying well" its a scary time committing to paying someone a very good wage, hopefully it will work out well for all concerned.

    TB1, its an oft quoted "fact" that cobblers kids have bare feet and muckaniks drive the ropiest cars on the road.

    yes Dave you are right. I have a vw golf r reg sitting on my drive with its gearbox on the floor. and the jag that was mine is outside his house. but he said put a car in first , because you just don't know what they will fail it on. he is fed up with them. what he says is a fail. they pass. so he lets them mot it , then if it passes he does the things that need fixing.

    Did the wifes last week Van & my car April. I don't fret cos I spend as much time under my van as in it :LOL:
    My tester is top drawer too so I know if he finds anything it is for my own good. He pointed out a screw in the wifes car front tyre, this was straight after Costco had fitted two new and put them to the back.

    Just realised my MH MoT is nearly two weeks overdue. ARSE.

    Hoping when I drive it from storage to the MoT centre I don't go through any number plate recognition cameras. I'll probably get nobbled by VoSA's computer system anyway - it's a fair cop Your Honour, society's to blame.

    If you are pre-booked in for the test you are ok to travel straight there, no detours!
