:D :D
2003 prior to fitting new axle for the once yearly check up, smacked up the back by SEAT hatch thingy -result respray and hassle of finding new rear panel (oh what fun)
2004 in garage for once yearly check , four post lift fails( with shuvit on) - result bent wolfrace, dinted panels oh!!! and partial respray
2005 so far so good car to garagemot carried out, PASSES !!!!!! HURRAH!!! back home safely, not sure if I should now leave in garage till next year. I'm not paranoid the world realy is out to get the little vauxhall at this time of year it seems, Cos let's face it mot time should be about dodgy bearings and leaky shocks and stuff not serious grief , or is that just me.
Anybody else seem to find that the MOT can make a drama out of a crisis

I've only ever had my car for one MoT, but that was a pricey one. Holes everywhere needing patched up.

Strange a pillar lift failing like that - just be thankful nobody was under it at the time! Well now that the time has passed, it should be safe to venture out of the garage again.
