I just MOT'd my bella today, it scraped through for around 200 quid, only just on emissions though, despite a new cat last time
two tyres (worn out by knackered wishbones, done myself a few weeks ago (180 for 1 top and 1 bottom and carrieage and bolts
) (full set last year btw) new rear tie bar arm (22 from eb spares inc carr Vat etc.
) then some petrol additive to help drop the co reading to a scrape through level, and of course the test itself.
And I keep thinking about changing it for a small diesel car
, but I'm buying parts, not losing depreciation...there is no one answer, but to me, doing work yourself is always an option if you have an older car...and older Alfa's need a lot of cash n tinkering IMHO, but mine had more spent by the previous owner looking at his reciepts, prolly seemed OK when the car was newer (and more valueable)
My honest opinion is better the devil you know, to change cars now will waste all the cash you've already spent on it (am I convincing me or you?)
