I also know dodgy outfits like Halfords and quickfit fail and charge for headlight aiming etc.
If the headlight aim is out of tolerance, it is a fail , even if  just one bulb needs replacing ,it's a fail ,must be entered on the VTS device as a fail, then repaired, then part retest 
not that i'm sticking up for Halfrauds or quicksh!t
you can't do repairs ,however minor, during a test

but i suspect your implying that such outfits fail on such items ,even though they are fine ,just to meet sales targets etc bump up the bill
you could be right  ;D

Sadly I know they do! Well a certain branch anyway 😡😡😡😡

39.85 at mine. And 30 to any OOF member who wants one 😁😁😁

I know that when we put online MOTs at under that we got less interest. Probably to do with people thinking that we'd try and do them (not the case but new customers don't know that).

Check for oil in the coolant too. Did an oil cooler on one only a month ago. Vauxhall had lots on the shelf...

Cheers STEMO. yeah can't see anything. But if there is one it has to be the HBV as it's the only thing I've disturbed. Hopefully it's just a bit of air working it's way out 👍👍👍

Evening guys. I hope you're all well. Quick question...did HBV on Saturday. Run car with cap off. Heaters working lovely. Got home (10 minute journey) coolant warning came on. No dramas. I assumed it would need that. Topped it up. Did half hour drive today. No warning light but I was doing some engine bay pottering and noticed it had dropped again (as said not enough to put light on) but is it likely it would need topping up twice after the HBV change?

In terms of how I bled it I ran it with cap off mainly idling but with a few bursts of throttle. heater on hot and blower fans off. All throughout squeezing ras hoses. Thoughts...

Cheers guys

General Car Chat / Re: Tyres guru

We used to fit for 'my tyres' but they only want to pay 7 a tyre inc. balancing. Complete waste of time. Well maybe worth it if you're doing a shit load of tyres but we don't.

Tyre prices have definitely gone up considerably. Toyos for Eeyore are 70 plus vat...and that's me having to fit them and trade price. Ridiculous. I'll stick to ditch finders.

Boss man goes through tyres on his merc like nobody's business. He has Contis and they're usually 180 plus vat a tyre 😬😬😬😬

Changed the HBV today. I don't remember doing one before. Not the nicest job I've ever done but went well. For anyone else doing this a can of spray grease makes everything slide together a piece of piss. Yes it smokes like a good un but that's ok.

Found on the old one a nice big crack round the side of the single pipe so hopefully that's that........

Well it's a very good point. I rang the other day for some prices for stuff like interior switches and a lot of them are discontinued 😢

Omega General Help / Re: Omega wheel bolt covers
« on: 01 July 2018, 12:55:39 »
apart from they don't fit on the locking wheel bolt on each wheel
so 80% coverage
Yeah, the locking covers are rocking horse shit.  I have some black PLA, maybe I should print some ;D

But does anyone still use lockers on their Omegas?
Goodyear rubber is over 100 quid a corner and my wheels are mint , so I do  :-[

Luckily my Rovellos or whatever rubbish I've got on there is about the same price for all four  ;D
