S3 past itâs MOT yesterday â a few advisories around corrosion on the suspension springs and worn top mounts, but another year of S3 motoring sorted out. Shame about the £700 I had to fork out for 4 new tyres, new front disks and front pads prior to the MOTâ¦ Oh well, it is still less than the depreciation Iâd suffer on a newer car . It's also nice to have the alignment all sorted once again - although given the state of the roads I don't hold out much hope for that staying where it should be. Today was also the day when I got my yearâs worth of cashback from my credit card. That totalled £191.66, so thinking of a little treat for the car â time for a Badger TIP, filter & heat shield me thinks???
