:lol: Sounds familiar. Sometimes I wonder if it would be cheeky for me to say "ahem, I've actually got a cat on this one so if you wouldn't mind actually checking my car for vital safety items that would be grand". :oops:

I've been working really hard to get the Clio in a position it will actually pass an completely straight MOT, only the CAT to go, and I have a sports CAT waiting to be modified and fitted, then I'll see if it even gets close to the correct emission standards :angel:

Ha! I need to use your MOT station.

In fairness mine has made it to a ramp, but that’s because Simon Scott-Russell at SSR Sportscars is sorting the minor cam seal leak as well as the MOT

Have to say super impressed by Simon again, I asked that he gives it a service, sort the leak, and also poke about for anything I need to worry about.

He has been fantastic to deal with and picked up just a handful of really minor things to bring the car up to scratch, really pleased with his approach. Definitely recommended.

Collected car from its service and MoT, fantastic service and really impressed by SSR. And was very nice to be given a gift as part of the experience too!
