NCT fail.

It's first actual fail since I got it, had the resit today and still failed - brake imbalance so money will sort it soon enough but eh just coming into 230,000 miles so you'll expect that.

After market brake cylyndyr* less than a year old has quit, bring the whole NCT / theseus sugababes bill to 500ish.

I've a saved search on *car website* of 1 litre shitboxes with a years NCT near you ready to chat and they are all 12-1500

Mechanic is always amazed how cheery I am when he tells me the bill but like every year that thing stays legal for less than a grand is fine by me.

*temporary spelling lapse.

Oil often comes with a red oil can light.

Also check engine lights sometimes are timed from the last service to suggest the next one
On mine, a little spanner means it needs maintenance. The engine icon means it's fucked or about to be fucked
