Just a little feedback following my cars first MOT
Well - it did pass - eventually - after having to get some work done on it including new rear discs and pads -but boy what a difference it has made.
Car also need new CV boot on the drivers side - it had a small hole in it - SOMEHOW?? - but as a result needed replacing
so after a day in a Corsa 1.2 SXI - i got my turbo back yesterday and boy - does she feel great - brakes are razor sharp now - out braked myself a little a couple of times on the way home as i wasn't quite used to having that response.
Car seems to feel very taut and together after recieving some TLC from the dealer - Guerneys of Newbury.
Has really spurred me on - want to get the front brakes done now - going to go for the Red-Dot grooved from Regal - but gonna stick with the standard callipers for the moment. - Also got Phase 1 on the cards at the start of the new year - and that'll be my lot. - Just gonna look after it from there on in until I get bored again!.
Also little tip for those of you who have pending MOT's - take a walk into your VX dealer - they are doing something now called MOT insurance. - £35 quid for the year guarentees your car to pass - as it covers repair work up to £750 but you need to have it before you go for the test - does involved paper work so you'll need to allow a couple of months i reckon inorder for it all to come through - VX only started it recently - so unfortunatley - i couldn't benefit - as my wallet can testament!.
