MOT passed!

If any of you have been following any of my threads there was a number of things wanted doing before I put it in for its test, and a few things that wanted doing anyway.

Absolutely delighted!

Got 3 advisories -
Rear offside brake hose slight corrosion
Rear nearside brake hose slight corrosion
Front nearside slight play in lower ball joint.

Better than I was expecting!

She got a thorough bath as a reward, plus a "spirited" drive around some country roads.

Just goes to show how with a little attention Alfa Romeo is more reliable that a lot of cars. Hell, my mum's Lexus fails every time.

The guy who did it (at Guide Garage Blackburn) was a proper nice bloke with an unhealthy obsession with the Toyota GTFour.

We had our ts for 12 years never failed. Over the course only a couple of advisories, brake hose was perished. That was a bugger to change, ended up rounding off the nut. Told about plus gas never looked back. Only other was exhaust rubbers.

Shame it got written off
