Well Happy MOT passed (156 JTD) today...

I've had my 156 almost 12 months, done 27,000 miles in it (126,000 in total), and the MOT I got with it expired yesterday. So over the last few weeks I've done the brake discs, new headlight bulbs, number plate bulb, cleaned out the EGR, ran a couple of tanks of Forte Fuel Treatment through it, 2 new front tyres (were just worn out)... completing a wash & clean out of it this morning.

I was very nervous as they did all the tests on it, then the tester came over & said "yup, no faults" - I was shocked! pleased... but shocked

So that's it for another year!

Paddy

Well Done!! It's always (surprising) nice when your car passes it's MOT with no work being done ... reminds me of when I owned a Ford (Shhhh)
