    unlucky days

    Well today was the day that my car was due for its MOT and the day went as follows:

    double checked the time of the MOT and discovered it was at 5.30pm and not 7.30pm as I originally thought.

    So I washed the car and headed off, the only thing I was doubtful of was that maybe handbrake may not be up to spec.

    When I arrived at the centre the front drivers side indicator decided it had had enough, no big deal I thought.

    So the guy takes the car off for the rest of the test. He then comes to me with the paperwork.


    I get a pass but with advisory notice
    1) get indicator fixed
    2) change number plates as they are illegal (advised if I get stopped re plates I may get 3 points and £30 fine)

    I then headed to girlfriend's parents house. This is where her dad reverses out of the drive and hits my car - not major damage but rear bumper will need resprayed, not sure what else yet.

    ah well at least thats the three all in one go

    Sporthatch time!

    Can't believe your plates are illegal - means mine are REALLY wrong.

    Unlucky stuff. You think her da would have figured out the reversing thing after the last fiasco.

    Crap one, though you were lucky to get your mot passed, I had had a straight fail at the Carn test centre for my no.plates!

    Andy save yourself some money and go back to townparks and get them to make up some legal ones -and get them to not put dealer name on them.

    Aye, I'll get that sorted when it's in for the new rear window.
