Im fairly convinced that they are different to one another.  :-\
They're near as damn it identical... Under normal circumstances they are interchangeable.

But that still won't help in this case ;)

Well dog got walked...

So far, pollen filter and air filter both changed. After half an hour trying to get the wipers to clear each other, I need to modify the end of the lower one. Apparently the designers hadn't allowed for an extra 0.005 mm clearance on the return sweep to enable aeroblades to not collide ::)

Found a split breather hose, which explains the slightly high idle.
Throttle body removed and cleaned, was minging, now shiny.
Concluded that all the oil over the cam cover and end of the block was all coming from the split hose rather than, as suspected, the cam cover seal... And thought great, no need to remove the inlet fanimold to change that :) only to remember that the oil filler and breather neck are both full of mayo ::)

Time for another beer.  :D

In this situation it is effectively uninsured as you have blatantly failed to maintain your vehicle in a roadworthy condition.

ie if you prang it, they won't pay out because you should NOT have been using the vehicle in the first place...  ::)

The only exemption is to/from test or place of repair in relation to said test... And even then I suspect that you will find your cover limited to Third Party only :-\

how does the lack of a piece of paper say that your car is not roadworthy? That's like saying that a MOT certificate is a guarantee that your car IS roadworthy
It is on the day of issue.

Fail to present it for an annual test and use it on the road and you have no way to prove that it has been independently tested according to the legally required standard.

The automatically qualifies it as being of unroadworthy condition. Good luck proving otherwise.  ;)

Omega General Help / Re: Winter tyres for MOT
« on: Yesterday at 17:51:41 »
You might get an advisory, but when I submitted mine on winters in late April it wasn't even mentioned.

Legally size, load rating, tread depth and condition are more important than type or brand :y

Had two front tyres fitted to the front of the go cart...

It can now achieve motorway speeds without feeling like the front is about to shake off :D

Went to swap the drop links for new ones whilst they were changing the tyres... Failed miserably... ;D So retightened the one undone nut and drove it home. I did at least confirm that one of them is totally Donald.

Contemplating doing the service on it, but the dog looks like she wants a walk ::)

Probably.

Especially if the Astra key has a chip in it... :-X

I used to get both, plus oil filter, six plugs and a drum of 10/40 for about 70

Certainly both of those from a dealer shouldn't be more than 15-25.

So no, you haven't been turned over as long as they deliver what you ordered... ;)
