Not sure but think this is MOT number 18 or 19 for the BB4 (in my time of ownership)
Was a pass
but with a few advisories and one minor defect which was the lower ball joint boot on the driver side.
And they dont like the fact the cf bonnet is bolted down and has no centre catch - not a biggie a i can swap it back to one of the oem bonnets i have spare for next time.
The slight play in both front upper wishbones is due to me replacing the oem ones with es polys and i did think at the time the oem design is far better than ES. They dont really need replaced but i do have spare wishbones with the oem mounts in place so i may change them over at some point. Yeah im not too impressed with the ES upper wishbone bushes or their front drop link ones (which ive also replaced with oem/blueprint) and ive also found the rear arb bushes tend to go oval quite quickly and ive replaced them with Strongflex poly ones which fit the oem mount bracket. The ES parts have been one the car since 2013 - rant over
there was a mention they are tightening up on import cars that are not fitted with a cat
The only thing i did prior to the MOT was have a new set of steering rack gaiters fitted as ones on the car had split. They were aftermarket and half the diameter of the OEM ones and 1/6th of the price so no real surprise there but i think they have lasted 4 or 5 years which is not too bad.
Anyway im pleased with another pass and the car is running spot on.
Maybe its a good time to sell it and concentrate on the BB1 - but who is going to give me the £3k i think the car is worth
