    In case anyone is interested, I have collated the mileage recorded at the time of the MOT of all STRs which passed their MOT in 2019 from anonymised data held by the Department of Transport. Although there are no doubt errors in the database and mileage is not the only consideration, I think it...

This is the link to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency website where the current regulations and other links are available, as they may change from time...

    Hi all, I have to have my 2.7d S type with electronic parkbrake VRT (Irish equivalent of the MOT) tested shortly, and was wondering how the tester would test the handbrake efficiency. S type Jags are very few and far between in this neck of the woods (Co. Donegal) and I am a bit...
