I was a bit embarrassed the way my one passed a month ago... Well, even though we got strict MOT rules in Serbia as well, it was the only derv that day (-25 degrees celsius). The test rollers were covered in thick layer of ice, so there was next to nothing braking force, yet brake distribution was spot on, ha! The guy was to polite to bring me back some other day, in the end, ice wasn't my fault :icecream:

Passed this morning, that's 5 on the bounce now, just advisory on mot 3 for pitted brake discs:beer:

Well done great feeling when it gets through.

You cant be braking hard enough, track day will soon sort the pits.

Mines due in a week or so but have a couple of bits that may need sorting. The exhaust needs replacing (if anyone can help I started a separate thread) and there is a 1 inch split on the n/s cv boot. not sure if this would be a fail or not?

A split CV will fail.

Bummer, thought that might be the case. Are these difficult to change, I see the parts are under a fiver but I don't know if I have the right tools.

Just had the Punto done, passed, but advised grease was coming from n/s cv boot.

Thought it was a pass or fail?????
