    Last Friday the missus was checking when the car MOT was due. Made me question when my work van was due - ooops, a month ago.

    Just had phone call from the garage, my van is ready for collection. Clean pass, no advisories. Not too shabby for a 5 year old work van ( unlike its owner )

    My German rocket is due its first mot and a service in May - bmw dealers called me to book it, they will collect it, courtesy car being left. As car is coming out of warranty they go through it with a fine tooth comb, five and a half hours of labour apparently.

    Mind you, it has just gone past the 10,000 mile mark!!

    And absolutely nothing has gone wrong with it!

    Five and half hours - don't take that long to built :)

    Just picked van up, only did 3300 miles since last MOT!

    I assume they find as much work as they can as bmw will be paying for it.

    Nice pad.

    Love the olive trees.

    I have had a building plot in Cyprus for about fifteen years - if i could get the olive trees on it over here I would probably get more for them than the plot is worth!!

    Nice one
    We only have 55 trees but produce around 300lt every year average....cold pressed extra extra virgin olive oil...which we let settle rather than filter it...beautiful.

    This service is very good.
    You can only do two vehicles, but just use another email address or partners mobile number.

    A colleague who has multiple bikes & cars (5 I think), uses an app called Vehicle Smart. Not looked at it myself as I have a Windows phone & it's only available for Android and I-phones.

    It links to DVLA so reminds you when each MOT is due, the MOT history, mileage etc. You can input details of insurances, servicing reminders, tyre sizes and pressures, type of oil to use, VIN's etc.

    I have no idea if it costs anything or how good/bad it is but if anyone tries it, perhaps you could let the rest of us know.
