    I've missed somethng here. What's the car, Nick?
    And surely if it's new, then it shouldn;t fail on anything expensive. Maybe brake pads, something like that?

    Ah. right, I guess, suspenion bushings then. But then again, I would have guessed tht you look after your car.
    Hmm.
    Nah, that's my guess, suspension bushings. Front or rear, do i have to chose?

    Good times!

    Just as well - they are cracking down BIG STYLE on un-serviceable flux-capacitors, but moreover, over-full gayness-ness... :? :roll:

    tracking
    You're a bit too late dude!

    And besides, tracking refers to the wheel-to-wheel distance. Something that is VERY rarely adjustable. Wheel alignment, on the other hand... :wink:

    Easily adjustable on most cars by simply driving into a solid object with sufficient pace.

    Most common failures for 1st time MOTs is headlight alignment and wipers/washers !
    And Tracking (as its commonly referd to) is not part of the MOT unless the suspension/steering is damaged/bent ect !

    That's a good point. I wonder if the MOT regs are the same in Sweeden?
