It passed again. \o/ For all my whinging about it, it's never failed an MOT in the two years I've had it. With this and the Focus I had before for eight years, I've only had two MOT failures in the last ten years, and they were both for the O/S parking brake not releasing fully on the Focus.
So anyway, got a couple of advisories, both front tyres worn to near-limit on inner edge. I knew they were worn down as I had the tracking done about three months ago because of it. So it wasn't really a surprise that they flagged up on the MOT.
Decided to put some Bridgestones on for a change to the bottom-of-the-barrel tyres I normally go for. Also got full wheel geometry done, and all four were a bit off. The back tyres are fine but when they're ready to change in about six months, I'll put the same tyres on there, too, so they're all the same. I'm funny like that. I also cannot drive if somebody's moved the air vents up or down - it annoys me.
So today I've spent around £280 on the car. Or rather, my flexible friend has.
Oh, and about the radiator fix (in my other thread this week) - I don't know what he bonded the port back on with, but it's holding up well, bone dry. And the stuff he used has gone rock-hard, almost like some sort of metal. Just monitoring the situation for now.
Hoping I can go at least a couple of months with no more spending on the car.
