MOT time

who says Alfas are expensive to run?

MOT passed first time on Tuesday (sorry a bit late). Got through with no work done and no advisories. Having worked my way through the previous owners 'things I did not round to do' list, it hasn't broken/worn through a thing in a year (however a new clutch beckons before too long).

and all the money I have saved? diverted into my 75 fund

now, where's a stout bit of timber to touch

Re: MOT time

Good news, Purple! Last year, my car went through the MoT after the massive task of replacing a number plate bulb and fitting new wiper blades...not bad for a 7 year old Alfa . With the MoT due again next month, it will be interesting to see what is needed this time but I don't envisage anything major.

Re: MOT time

My 166 flew through MOT too a few days ago. No advisories, nothing!

Mine is a '99 model with 77k, and the car runs like clock work.

Happy days.
