    Mot

    Well, the G was in the garage yesterday and i was quivering as to how much it was going to cost me but it passed first time. The Angel-Eyes needed aligning but all in all twas £60. Not bad for a car thats 8years old!

    I thought everywhere did that for free on a MoT.. I've never been charged.


    And for the guys thinking they're cool cos their cars pass the MoT no matter what's wrong with it, you're not. Those comments will come back to bite you in the ass when you try to sell your car... you're MoT's are worthless.

    I have friends that work in garages and can get my car through an MoT but personally I want to know whats wrong with my car and I would want to get it put right asap.

    Shane I agree, its all well and good saying my car will pass no matter what, but if they say i've passed it for you but the brakes need doing and you think "I'll do them in 3 weeks time when I get paid". Then some woman with a pram walks out in front of you, you can't stop cos your brakes are shot....... I hope you could live with that my friends........
