Default Time flies - 2nd MOT

I can't believe I have had the car on the road for 5 years . But probably due to lack of use it has sailed through it's second MOT with only an advisory on the outer CV boot.

So now it time to use it,starting with a trip to France next month, just wish i could improve the handling !

Well done for passing MOT.

In the same situation. Not using it enough. Can't even blame the weather!!

Will be taxed starting this month.

As mine has not been getting much use I am going to take it to France on a camping trip for a week.

Hardest part is getting the wife to understand the space constraints so we are go away in the UK this weekend to practice. if you see a pile of tents, bags, cases, cookers, fridges etc going down the road, there may be an EXI hiding underneath !

Just be thankful you got an MOT. Everytime I do a job, I seem to find another problem to sort!
