Re: MOT no more?

Two possible future ongoing uses for a 'voluntary' MOT: It serves as ongoing official verification of the mileage - maybe useful as part of the car's history should you ever come to sell, and likewise maybe useful for demonstrating back to your insurance company that you are keeping within your annu...

Non-eared Spinners

Would anyone happen to know if the S2 non-eared spinners and the non-eared 'Continental' spinners fitted to certain earlier export models are one and the same?
