    Will let you all know when my garage has finished my coilover install - though they have ride height to sort as well as install.

    H&R lowering springs install: new video

    I would say an hour each on the front and two hours each for the rears, probably less with the right tackle, lift etc, took me about that time working off the garage floor one side at a time, give or take, and that was with some stubborn stuff.

    How many hours should a spring/shock install take at a competent indie?

    I would like to say that after tackling a spring and shock swap this morning this particular how to video helped leaps and bounds above the rest of the YouTube videos I attempted to get an idea from. Really made my life easy today thank you! Luke

    Late MOT

    I forgot about mine a few years ago. A previous early service\mot had brought the date forward a month and caught me out. Easily done. Yes I had been driving about for a few weeks, and no, never got pulled. The only time I've ever let this happen!

    Late MOT

    On a similar note , I haven't seen the customs and excise vans out and about testing for red diesel for a very long time , i suppose it's the "efficiency savings "

    Late MOT

    There were not so many number plate recognition cameras around back then. I have noticed there are less SORN vans around probably because most police cars are fitted with cameras now. This is something I am very much in favour of as the more uninsured or non MOT cars we get off the roads the safer the roads will be and a lot quite if the reported numbers of uninsured drivers is correct.

    Late MOT

    I had this too. I got Dean at Eporsch to reply by email to me that MOT was booked in via them.

    Late MOT

    I once forget the date of the MOT of a Ford Galaxy we had many moons ago , I was only driving around in it for 3 months before i realized it had expired , never got pulled up by the plod though !

    Late MOT

    This is completely fool-proof (email and/or text received a month & 2 weeks ahead of MOT expiry): https://www.gov.uk/mot-reminder It works too! I have recently had reminders re. SWMBO's car): Cheers, Baggers.
  21. DullWitch

    Late MOT

    I set mine up so the MOT is due just before the tax, so when the V11 reminder plonks on my doormat, I know it also needs a ticket
  22. Hi Jim. Could you give me a price and availability on your gear lever bearings, please. 

  23. Pierrick

    Late MOT

    Ok. That's what I thought... No panic then! Will get it MOT'd soon. Thanks.
  24. Nobbie

    Late MOT

    Good point there, you are only allowed to drive to/from a pre-booked MOT.
  25. bagss2

    Late MOT

    Yeah. Expired MOT = Book it in, drive it there, get a pass, enjoy... Then set an online reminder so it doesn't expire again in future years. Don't drive it in the meantime, unless you fancy tempting fate/mither. Cheers, Baggers.
  26. Nobbie

    Late MOT

    Correct, I have just had this with my car after some work over ran on my driveway. The only possible issue is that some Insurance policies state that an MOT should be in force at all times, so technically you shouldn't park on a public road with no MOT if this is the case with your policy. I did have a visit from plod about my 107 parked on the public road without an MOT when some busybody neighbour reported it to the police. He just advised me to get it MOT'd or off the road. It's also fine to drive to and from an MOT station without a valid MOT as long as the car is roadworthy which is different to merely having an MOT and relates to various safety critical things like structural rust, major braking system and suspension faults - basically stuff you would be an idiot to drive with anyway. You can have an unroadworthy car with a valid MOT ( fault develops after test) as well as a roadworthy car with a fail certificate where the fail is due to high emmisions. My Boxster failed on number plate light and blowing exhaust, but was fine to drive home for repair. If it had said leaking brake pipe then I wouldn't have driven home as it would have been unroadworthy.

    Late MOT

    Not an insurance question but I believe this is the best place to ask the question... What happens if you forget about your MOT? I believe that if you do not drive I shouldn't get a fine? Can anyone confirm?

    Air Intake mod -epilogue

    Thanks! This is my home track, LCMT (Le Circuit Mont Tremblant). It is a beautiful track next to Mont Tremblant ski station and village. There's a small lake and I like to camp next to it when I'm doing multiple track days!
