I'm glad to say that the car sailed through the MOT!
There was an advisory though, on "the nearside inner front steering rack joint". Personally, I don't have a clue what that is or why!?!
Good news also! I'm putting a deposit on my next car, which is a long story but the cut down version. I get an Astra Coupe Turbo at the start of April but will not be insured until June 12th! (My birthday - 19!)
