    And I thought I was going to be facing a bit of a bill next week. MoT, all filters, engine oil change and a load test on the battery.

    If it's an automatic, how about an arm and a leg?
    That way he can keep the kidney for next time it has to go in.

    Yes fair few on eBay. Unfortunately due to faults and a difficult dealer looks like the Jeep is going back.
    As much as I'd love to persuade the missus a D3 is the way to go think gonna be sensible and lower the budget for now.
    Probably gonna have a diesel mondeo st as her new daily soon.

    Gonna keep my 300tdi commercial for at least a year and then look at maybe upgrading with a D2 V8 or even maybe a D3 as daily hack and occasional off-roader

    Have you got the latest oil pump? If not, get that done at the same time.

    few more bits to fit

    suspension reservoir

    inlet exhaust silencer

    am wondering if it's worth putting some hammerite on the air tank before fitting it

    Nice new shiny MoT certificate - no advisories.
    Engine service too, filters and oil change. Asked the garage to do a load test on the battery for me at the same time, sadly it showed that the big black box of volts was on it's way out and could let me down at any time, next year or this coming Thursday when it starts snowing. Ordered a new Powerline C31-1000 (120 Ah/1000 CCA) battery from Tayna. It's being delivered in the morning (overnight) and will be fitted as soon as the predicted rain stops.
