MOT success
« on: 15 May 2019, 12:54:20 »

Having spent all yesterday preparing the Omega for its annual MOT the good news it has passed today and no advisories.

Not bad for a 1998 car.

Congratulaions!

I presume it's a PFL. Is it saloon or estate? Is there any reason you know why it romped through without advisory notes?

Presumably the certificate mentions it :-\

No mean feat on a 20+ year old car though :y

check a car BEFORE MOT , sort out anything wrong BEFORE MOT
saves having to sort a big list of advisories ,or fixing and re-testing a fail  :y

It is a saloon (pre-face lift 2.5 Elite). Current mileage is 55924.

It doesn't do too many miles nowadays but that creates its own problems, eg rusty brakes, discs, flat battery etc.

I spent a day looking over it before the MOT and that included a front and rear brake overhaul plus oil and filter change, wash and polish

I  also dealt with the annoying rust blisters around the base of a couple of doors.

Looks great now
