£220 worse off, but I've just taxed mine for another year.

Covered just over 250 miles last year, so allowing for the cost of the MoT as well, that's around £1 per mile plus petrol :scared

I wish they would scrap vehicle excise duty, or what ever they're presently calling it and put it on fuel instead.
I shall probably cover no more than 5k miles this year in two car's and pay the exchequer 480 quid for the privilege.
Some folks are covering 20-30,000 miles a year!

The trouble with putting it on fuel is I spend a lot more on petrol for lawn mowers/stimmers etc. then I do on the car. And I think I give enough in fuel duty already without having to pay road tax as well.

Fresh MoT today, but advisory on play in a track rod end and a small leak on the cat to downpipe joint.

That will keep me busy for a couple of hours sometime, but need to finish the rustproofing (cavity wax) first

Back from winter storage, another MoT pass and £225 of tax on the screen. Managed nearly 500 miles last year, though :laughing2

MoT'd for another year, almost managed 1000 miles last year (inc a holiday in Cornwall during which we visited the original supplying dealer) :cool

Probably won't be doing much mileage from now on, though, as not getting a nice coloured piece of paper to go in the windscreen has put me off leaving it taxed all year round :cursing

Well, that's 15 years of 220 GSi Turbo ownership achieved today! :D And about 17,000 miles :laughing2

Can't believe it was only 6 years old when I bought it :scared

Two more 220 GSi turbo 3-doors 'lost' this year, advertised as breaking for spares on eBay.

N721BUY and N659FCW, both Charcoal and with around 100k miles on the clock.

MoT passed last weekend, only 12 miles covered since the last test :blushing (that was 6 miles each way from our favourite MoT test station)

So yes, my GSi Turbo has sat in the garage for 12 months and during that time the ABS has developed a fault. Luckily the lamp passes its self-test sequence then only comes on again after driving a few yards, so the tester did not get to see that there was anything wrong :) Hopefully it will be something straightforward to sort out.

Shut in the garage now until June, when we will be off up to the North East for the Preston Park show.
