MoT Passed ... now my daily driver.
Good news. After being inactive on SORN since October 2015 due to a range of issues whilst being repaired, this car is now up and running very nicely and passed the MoT today.
So, as well as other smaller renewals, new clutch, clutch slave cylinder and above all, low mileage MG6 1.8t engine which by an amazing coincidence, I actually drove the donor car before it was rolled and written off, job 99% done. I bought a set of front and rear discs and pads for it a year ago and only fitted the fronts back then. Weather permitting, I will fit the new rear discs and pads tomorrow as the originals although not worn, have suffered from lack of use corrosion issues. Still work but, not nice to know the poor cosmetic shape they're in with signs of irregular wear scoring on discs.
That MG6 engine pulls very nicely. The car drives like a new one. It is currently on 18" Hairpins ( refurbished ) with new NEXEN rubber all round. These will be sold. Replaced with refurbished GRIDspokes with new UNIROYAL Rainsport 3s all round. Have Rainsports on two of the family cars, an MG ZS with 17" and a Rover 620ti also on 17". I like these Rainsport tyres. Suits my driving style all aspects.
£280 VED is a bit of a body blow. Thanks to the clueless we entrust to our environment and our well being taking EU emission guidelines as gospel with grossly unfair bias against petrol.
