I actually only phoned to book the MOT today, I was going to phone on Saturday but forgot as I was busy doing stuff on the car.Hell Razor5543 wrote:9 pages in a week, and he has only had it for 4 days! Come on, give him a chance. Some places have a long waiting time.
I only picked up the car on Thursday guys! I took Friday off work and did all the work on Friday and Saturday that I wanted to do before the MOT and before the old (read: parts) car goes, then on Sunday it rained all day. So I've done nothing but check the car over and do little jobs to get it all ready...
Once wheel balance, spheres and a normal service is done I honestly think that's all the work it will need doing until next MOT time. Not counting the panel scrape repairs, which will need to wait until next spring probably as house hunting is a priority right now - I'm stretching my luck with SWMBO as it is putting on a full set of spheres so soon and possibly needing a couple of tyres... don't want to push my luck even further.
The main thing is she does really like the car though. It still has a new car smell and feel to it inside and the leather is soft and like new. And despite the scratches on the rear left door and the rear bumper it does still look very smart on the outside too. It's clearly been waxed and polished recently as the rain sits in nice beads on the paint. The dark Silex Grey is much nicer than Quartz Grey ("Silver") too IMHO.
