Nct Passed!! 3 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 10
My Mk1 passed the Nct this morning after a retest for number plates and a missing split pin from a track rod end. Had to pay for the retest due to the tester having to put the car up on the ramp for all of 30 seconds! I'm wondering what's the most trivial thing their cars have failed on in the past?

Congrats! My mk1 failed on an imbalance in the rear shocks and too much handbrake travel the last time. I removed rear springs and swapped them and it passed, there was absolutely nothing wrong with it...

Thanks. That's a bit ridiculous. I'd say they just like to keep the older car failure stats high. I've never seen a tester spend as much time looking for something to fail a car on.

Depends who you get I reckon, if they've an interest in cars some will try their best to get it to pass I found anyway.

How are you finding her on the road anyway? I've mine taxed for the summer and getting good use out of her. I've a really annoying exhaust rattle when hot and coming off the revs between 2-2.5k but can't find what's rattling. Other than that she's flying.

Getting to drive mine alot at the moment. Am loving the car. She's going like a clock. I do have this kinda rattle noise slow over bumps which I think is the white plastic bushing in the steering rack. I've bought a spare rack and have all the bits to recon it. Also I am going to do all the bushings now as well. But all in all such a fun car to own and drive.
