My car is due an MOT in March (Well, April).
I'm not sure if it will pass or not? The reasons.....
Front suspension arms groaning slightly. Very rarely, there is a knock.
Puff of blue smoke on start-up after a lengthy stand (i.e. Over night) - Valve guide seals seeping (was told they were recon heads.....obviously not!)
Crack in windscreen in the N/S lower corner. Due to the trim, I cant tell if its an edge to edge crack (did pass mot last year like this though)
Thats all the faults I can find.
Some of you may be aware of the non running condition i bought the car in last March.
Timing belt & tensioners & idlers
Non genuine cats
Regular services by me (its had 3 in less than a year!)
Coolant temp sensor
Maf (2nd hand)
Throttle Body (2nd Hand)
Rear brake pads.
Car has covered 172k miles, no service history paperwork other than what I have bought/done to the car.
So my choice if the car fails is to sell it with a months MOT and 2 months Tax so it can be driven to new owners place
Break the car. I don't really have the space unless I can be sure that the parts would sell quickly.
Has full grey leather which is unmarked and no rips etc. Really is tidy.
Genuine S4 17" Avus alloys
Genuine RS4 front grille
The rest is standard.
Reason for this is we are due our second child on April 28th, and I really don't have the funds to rectify this at the moment. We are halfway through changing our bathroom suite as its well past its use by date!
What do you guys think my best options are?
