Mot pass woohoo

Well today was d day, the first mot of my 156 2.4jtd whilst in my ownership.

Well as I work in a Mercedes main dealer and get half price tests I booked it in.

Wasn't a good start when on Sunday the handbrake cable snapped!!
28 later and an hour under the car and all three sections replaced!!!

Well they took her in and she passed!!!
Couple of minor advisories, off side inner cv boot could be more secure and the end is snapped off one of the bonnet struts!!!
They even gave her a valet for me!!!

So now it's time to sort the few niggly problems like the broken bonnet strut, broken ashtray and the odd rusty bolt!!

Roll on the summer when u can clean the calipers and paint them and fit my braided BRAKELINES

Here's to another 12 monthes of fun motering including a drive down to northern Spain for a weeks holiday

I get advisories every year. I suspect the tester is a little over-zealous, for example...
