Washed the Trolley and gave it a quick once over ready for the appointment of doom tomorrow...

Airfix 1 is also in for test tomorrow. If it fails I can glue some new parts on, in no time.

I doubt there will be anything wrong with it that you can't put right.

Failed on a headlight beam pattern, which was a side effect of being a Depo unit so the bulbs are a complete shit to install properly.

Rectified for a fiver 8)

Advisories on edges of rear tyres (both ex front),
Minor leak of exhaust gasses, and...

Both side repeaters slightly faded. Which is odd as they're LED ones ;D

Still, a pass is a pass and at 190k miles, I won't be complaining  8)

Wonder how Airfix 1 is getting on  :-\

Not uncommon with traditional bulbs where the colour lacquer degrades and flakes off, likewise sunfaded acrylic lenses.

Might throw a fresh pair in, as these have been in for 18 months.

Passed with no advisories. DG - you should get rid of that german crap and buy a nice plastic French car instead.

There are two types of French cars. French cars with a fault and French cars about to develop a fault. At least you know this one has a proper fault. ;D
