Well just got the V6 back from the testers, failed on 8 points and has a 8 advisories.
2 are welding required (n/s front seatbelt anchorage and front inner wheel arch),
2 are headlights (o/s too high, n/s too low) so OK on average
2 are exhaust related (leak at the front and CO emissions on fast idle too high)
I also have a knackered front top wishbone bush and last,
registration characters incorrectly spaced (odd one as they passed last year....).
So where is the best place to get either a pair of top wishbones (with bushes), or a set of bushes (powerflex, superflex etc)? Speed rather than price is the main motivating factor. Some online retailer have a 7-21 day delivery window.
Advisories include, windscreen damage (less than 4cm outside zone A), corroded coil springs, both (although replaced last time around) front tyres cracking, air bag light on (no suprise there), radiator missing fins (or there), and play in o/s rack end when on floor.
