That's interesting. Yeh well, they collected it today so I assume I'll hear back from them tomorrow. As my second car (in my own name), I'm going to miss the 147 which I feel I took for granted quite a lot, most notably when I stepped into my beautiful 2012 Fiat Panda replacement car. 10 years newer, about 10% of the responsiveness.
Seems that NCT-doesn't actually mean the car was road worthy, and the same assessment will be done either way, unless the accident seems dodgy. But slipping in the wet obviously isnt.
