Good news bad news
Good news:- My 25 V reg diesel (233k miles) has just passed the MOT. Required a new exhaust (that cost 3 x more than the car is worth) plus the rear high level brake light. I noticed the high level brake light is completely different on my 53 plate. V reg has capless bulbs and can be removed easily by two accessible screws, 53 plate looks as if it has LEDs and cannot be removed without taking the spoiler off.
Bad news:- My 53 plate at 204 k miles has gone into semi retirement and has been replaced by a almost new 1.5 TDCI Focus.
Good news:- My 53 plate is not being scrapped, I am intending to keep it going as a standby for when the Focus packs in with some mega expensive electronic fault that makes me regret ever buying it!
