It’s only been a few months since I changed cars. A couple of weeks ago I had to take it for the National Car Test. It failed :(
Thankfully, the things it failed on were not very major. I got them fixed and brought it back for a re-test today and it passed without any problems.
So the car is good to go until the next test, which isn’t until August 2009.
It has been a month or so since this happened, but I’ve changed cars. I sold the VW Golf and got myself a BMW instead.
My car passed it’s NCT on Monday. Yay!
Although I have to admit, it was only after a re-test. It failed the full test a few weeks back, because the carbon emissions were too high :(
That required me having to spend nearly €400 to get a new sensor put into the car. I know! €400 just for a sensor and the labour cost to have it installed. Ridiculous, but necessary at the same time.
Having passed the NCT will help when it comes time to sell it, which, if I get my way won’t be that far down the line.
I’m hoping to get a nice BMW 316 or 318 fairly soon. Fingers crossed :)
Anyone know where to get an MP3 car stereo? Not one that allows you to play a CD with mp3’s on it, but actually has a HD like the iPod. My brother is interested in one for an Xmas pressie and I wouldn’t mind one for my jammer (car :)) too.
I’m now the proud owner of a new VW Golf.
It’s not brand new… I’m not doing that well ;) It’s got all electrics inside, a CD player, alarm and loads of other fun stuff. Now all I gotta do is work out how it all works :D
