MY 2003 9-5 aero wagon flew through another MOT today with nothing to worry about.

Awesome :D

So bought 2 new badges for the tail gate and bonnet. New bonnet release handle oh and getting a double din kenwood DAB to update the dash and let Planet Rock back into my life now the company car is off back to company (redundancy boooo).

Decided the Double Ys might look nicer in a darker metallic grey so ordered SAAB stickers for the calipers as they are due another lick of paint and off to Halfords for my fav Simoniz alloy wheel spray and lacquer.

Just need the weather to hold.

Maybe not, forgot to change my phone number with the MOT station so I wont get the reminder. I will panic sometime next Oct, go on the DVLA website and then book ;-)

Only posted it as despite having done many many MOTs there is still that mmmm will it wont it. Of course it did its a 9-5!

Moreover, been sat on the drive mostly due to the company car but now in between jobs going to be pressed into main stream use again. Looking forward to it hence the need for Planet Rock.

Well I've been literally uncontrollable with every emotion known to man as the Volvo was in for its annual test today. I have had my fingers crossed kept my lucky troll In my pocket and prayed to every god I know (even the Scientology one). The dreaded phone call came and............


It Passed. Need a TRE but I knew that anyway. So pleased, Ive cracked open a bottle of Pomagne and treated myself to a whole Wagon Wheel. So this is what pure unadulterated bliss feels like. Here's to another year. CHEERS!!!!
