Well mine was about £260 to get through last time so don't worry too much.

I just replaced my rear wheel bearings, it was a ****ing nightmare, but wasn't that hard if that makes any sence :)

MOT's are just a p*** take....what might fail at one garage, can be taken to another garage and they'll pass it, which a friend of mine had proven the once, theres just no contingency.

be interesting to see if the government goes ahead with their idea of banning all cars over 10 years old though....

I suppose I can't grumble too much, could've been worse. Just realised I gotta let the garage know where the locking wheel but socket is - o the stress :(

the reason behind it is so called "safety" reasons....meaning a car over 10 years old wouldnt be classed as "safe" to be driven on UK roads and would have to be either towed or trailered anywhere it went....bloody stupid if you ask me.

a 10 year old (or older) car will still do pretty much the same amount of damage as a brand new car to something (or someone) it hits, only major difference really is the occupant's safety, but if everyone drove the way the government wants us to then the number of crashes would be reduced etc etc so its a stupid ruling if it comes into force.
