So the missus car is going in for an mot... its a great car, loads of power and no problems the last year of ownership (it was baby'd by the previous owner)
It has less than 1000miles before the cambelt's due... only, she says "Ive never had to do it on any other car, why start now"
Bad news from the garage today - my 166 is a bit poorly. Needs new rear suspension arms (costly, but I sort of knew that) but, worse, failed the MOT and needs a new handbrake cable (and a bit of welding).

Main issue is MAF/Lambda/Air Leak (delete as appropiate lol)
