    Took the ///M out for a swim today well at least it felt like it. !!

    MOT was due so didn't have much choice in bringing it out of the garage into this aweful weather we are having so decided to take it out a little earlier and get it fully warmed up so the emmisions would be ok on arrival. Anyway I was diverted onto the motroway due to one side of the roundabout being flooded which wasn't a pleasent experience but survived and I arrived at the test centre on time. Usual hanging around biting my nails for an hour or so listening to the guy on reception getting irate with his parts supplier for sending the wrong exhaust and then having to explain to his customer it is going to cost you more than we originally quoted, quite entertaining really. One interesting thing that came out in conversation was that VOSA are planning on getting rid of a printed certificate altogether and it will purely be electronic only the theory being the people who need to know can access the info online and if you want a paper copy yourself you print it out yourself.

    I suppose you all want to know if it passed now don't you, well...........................



























    YIPPEE it passed with no advisories. :D :D :D :D :coolsteer) :coolsteer) :coolsteer) :coolsteer) :coolsteer) :coolsteer) :coolsteer) :coolsteer) :coolsteer) :-bd :-bd :-bd :-bd \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

    Can you tell I am happy !

    Great news Ian, always a relief when you get the all clear. Would hate for you to have to turn up to Zed Fest on a low loader... :p
