I for some reason have to remove the hub caps, l used to have extensions, but they were rubbish.
It kinda puts me off checking, lame excuse l know, and also the very low mileage.

Yeah I much prefer alloys it makes life a lot easier. I used valve extensions even with my aftermarket alloys on my 107 but when I got my Smart I stopped using them as they let out air when screwing them on. Now I can do it without valve extensions.

Maybe you should take the hub caps off and keep them somewhere safe. After all the most important thing is to check the pressures regularly.

Most important thing about checking tyre pressures regularily is for early detection of slow punctures.

TÜV today, one CV gaiters that was starting to crack a little and the rubbers on this
Image
I thought one should be replaced l would get them both done. These things l asked him to pay attention to when he changed the brake fluid. He tells me they are ok.
Today l'm told the CV rubber is leaking, which it is not, just cracked in the middle.
The one that surprised me was, at the next TÜV
Juli 2019 the disks and pads would need changing.
In that time l might do 6-8 thousand miles. Soon the pads come out for inspection. They have been in since 2012, but only 25 k same as the disks. All are ATE.

Free MOT and service today.

Only snag was a couple handbrake cable clips and a headlight was out. Strangely the headlight was not out when I dropped it off at the garage. I guess coincidences do occur, and not like they're gonna make much money off a headlight.

I'll replace both headlights with osram night breakers soon, unless anyone has a better suggestion.

I do miss the spotlights on Cecil.

Uprooting my life and moving to London, to a place that a) has a parking space b) has a parking space that is actually flat.

Gone are the days of doing dodgy repairs on a slanted and deteriorating driveway. Which is to say that very little got done and required a lot of maneuvering.

Super excited for the 600 mile one way moving trip. Dunno if I can now afford to do anything to the car though, london rental prices are [insert multiple profanities] expensive.
