In hindsight, I should have realised that booking an MOT for Friday 13th wasnít necessarily a good idea! Not for the Landy but for the asbo Audi.

Needless to say it failed. Two worn bushes, a corroded brake pipe and some clips later and it was sorted but I had a bill I wasnít expecting...

Still, itís done now. Next year, the MOT wonít be booked for Friday 13th!

Audi? Typical badly build German rubbish.

Did I mention that both my fine well made Teutonic masterpieces - both Golfs; 2015 1600cc Diesel, 1996 1800 Petrol - both passed their MOT's first time last month?

Ah, there is a time for smugness, and I feel that time has arrived (for once) Very Happy

I should have bought a golf! Mrs Kís golf had 240k on it when we sold it in the autumn and it was still running albeit with a bit of smoke. It always passed the MOT, unlike the Audi... Rolling Eyes Smile

Iíve never had the issues with any one of my landies that Iíve had with the Audi, and everything for it is more expensive.

The second moral of the story is buy a Landy! Very Happy

Vorsrung durch technik presumably translates as very expensive to run due to all the expensive electronic junk that goes wrong.

Or leaf-sprung technique for a Landy (series of course!😉)
