Every August my Facebook memories remind me of the plethora of MOT experiences that august brings. The car is 14 years old which makes 11 MOTs and it has never cost a ridiculous amount other that the year I took it to some robbing bastards who started doing work I hadn’t even asked for!! I refused to pay for what I hadn’t asked for and had to drive the car around a mechanic who was standing in front of the car pointing out other things that were “wrong” with it!!
Anyway, today was this year’s MOT day and it failed on a couple of minor issues (ball joint caps or some such things ) as well as the usual emissions. They replaced the joints then took the car for a high rev spin to clear out the exhaust and it passed. £119.99 for the lot. I swear that car is made of the same dna as cockroaches!!
