Replaced the ignition switch for the second time in a year on my wife's N-reg F. The reason for replacing the switch is that the car would start then immediately stop two or three times before running properly. The ignition switch is not available new, so I bought a used one last year. In the past week or so it has started acting the same as the original, so I was able to source another used one, this time from MGFnTFBITZ. Hopefully this switch solves the issue.

And passed ...... one advisory "slight play in track rod end ball joint", so something to look at later, but very happy with that.

Interesting that emissions were much improved on 12 months ago for a car that only comes out to play occasionally, and has had no work done to the engine or exhaust in that time - but that may be down to a good run to get everything nice and warm immediately before going to the test appointment.

That seems to be very important for these cars, especially those, like mine, that pootle around a lot rather than being driven hardish. Glad it passed!

Hit the beach!

Decided to have a little trip to Blackrock sands.
Just love the beach there, you can chuck everything in the car and just drive on to the firm clean sands and unload and have a great day in the sun and sea!
