Yes, I'm sure you'll miss the annual ritual of an MoT! But, well done on the pass, especially with no advisories. Amazing, really, having no advisories! Usually the tester can put "oil leak" just to show he cares!

When mine last had an MoT, during a previous ownership, the tester offered these advisories,

"Under-trays fitted obscuring some underside components,
Engine covers fitted obscuring some components in the engine bay".

I can't imagine what vehicle he was examining, but it wouldn't have been my Series 3 Lightweight - unless he was thinking of the sump and the bonnet!
Best,
Fred
