    It makes some interesting reading. This year mine failed amongst other things on front shock absorber rubber bushes worn. I replaced them and have since upgraded all my suspension but looking back through the history it's failed on the same bushes every other year since the computerisation of MOTs came in! I didn't realise it was such an issue.....

    I get the advisor (using the garage I've used the last couple of years) that the chassis has been repaired!
