Scooter is my work horse, work in a hospital wrong side of city centre.

Car, is just sat in the garage/garden, till i pass my test. Been Wondering round here a while, thought i'd shove this up.

The Question, will these top mounts fail an M.o.t?

How do i fix them if they will? Its lowered 60mm at the front atm. Definitely going lower.

I will try not! Unlucky that mate, debating on buying front coilovers before insurance, if I insure it I'll never be able to afford them :/ if I fail my test again I'll definately be getting coilovers :lol:

There a straight fit with the wobble bolts, or washer bolts, whatever you call them.

The fronts poke abit too much though, definitely need spacers on the back.

I'll get some more pics up of it when I can, it's got a few dings, but all in all a tidy looking car.

Yeah that is really lucky, I'm thinking of going through a company called 'Insure The box' they monitor your driving etc & you get discounts & bonus's for being a good driver, the cars going low anyway, so it would be physically impossible for me to drive like a dick round my end, theres a speed bump every 50 yards :lol:

But, I Like a Challenge 8-)

Screw the box, somewhat ruins the fun you should be having in your car. I rather the "There is a time and a place" moto. If i want to do double the speed limit on the motorway when its empty, why not?

regarding your suspension, youve put it together wrong :p gotta take it all off again and theres a washer

somewhere that needs moving either below or above soemthing on the shock, it has a little cut out in the washer!

Congrats Bud don't go with insure the box! I was when I first passed but I waited a couple of days, and now I'm with a normal insurance, I've already done 4000 miles since July and I don't know how?! Plus you won't be able to go for night drives!
