    Well the blast down the M1 went well I've only ever hit the max revs once and it scared the crap out of me but today "NO FEAR"
    I think the first part went to plan image.
    Someone will probably have something technical to say about this.

    She wasnt even trying or close to failing

    MOT's are just a bit of mud under the tyres of a Honda - just plows straight over it unlike some marques which get broken and confused by a snow flake or a random leaf

    My Accord I-DTEC passed this morning, no issues or advisories. 50k trouble free miles, still feels like new.

    The dealer even washed it for me :Smile:

    As I was captive in the showroom while it was being done, I may even end up with another Honda yet...will see what the deal looks like - for a CR-V petrol auto. Downsizing? Pah! :Wink:

    Fingers crossed - the Subaru and Honda dealers are going to make final offers this week, and I'll be putting a deposit down on one of them...

    I'm actually thinking of selling the HR-V and looking for something to get the Dog in and the FR-V looks pretty inviting but the wife doesn't like it??? She needs a little more educating.

    I'll just check down the back of the sofa :Laughing:

    Maybe we need to do some HondaKarma alchemy?

    I've only just caught this thread @MickyB. You should know better. :tut::tut::tut:
    I've seen and heard (when I turn my hearing aid up) your Accord. How dare you even think for a millisecond that a MOT is a problem. :telloff:

    Really pleased for you. :gohonda: :gohonda: :gohonda:

    I checked online for the MOT history on my car, each MOT states no recorded advisory. So has my car never failed its MOT? :Unknown:
