First MOT at 23,700 miles

17 April 2010 - Filed under: Servicing

The MINI will be 3 years old at the start of May which means it required its first MOT (Ministry of Transport test) to test that it’s still road worthy to drive on UK roads.

I booked it into Carringtons of Oxford, partially because I’d heard good things about their workshop but also because I’d driven past their showroom quite a few times and decided I was due for a poke around the rather nice Austin-Healey 3000 and McLaren SLR they’ve got in stock at the moment.

Apart from a blown sidelight bulb the MINI passed with no advisories, which was a little annoying as I’d checked the bulbs earlier in the week leading up to the MOT, but nothing a few pence on a new bulb couldn’t rectify.
