the dreaded mot time again.

Well yesterday was that one day a year when every alfa owner is squirming around worried....mot day!!! I took my old gal down to my local garage to get here tested and as my car is 10 years old and covered 192000 graceful miles it normally fails on a whole bunch of crazy stuff.when I picked her up I got a major shock as although it failed the list is getting smaller!!!
N/s upper wishbone (no surprise there then)
O/s outer cv gaiter perished
No beam pattern from dipped beam (I have 100w bulbs so guess thats the problem there)
Front o/s brake flexy hose perished (good excuse to do brake conversion! )
Rear o/s brake pads low(it was sticking but stripped caliper last week, ordered new pads)
General underbody corrosion (just surface rust that I will clean off and waxoil)
All in all pretty happy with that and whilst I got it in bits I will do oil/filter change for mobil1 10w60 and also got a magnetic sump ug to stick in.
