Talking Happy Day

I submitted my 1999 SLK 230 for its annual test yesterday.

Passed with flying colours and not a single fault.

Oh happy day!

Just thought I'd share that.

Nearly every vehicle in the UK has to undergo THIS test annually, once it has been registered on the road for 3 years.

If done at the "dealer" they will give your car a free "health check" too!

Yeah, I managed to get a free cup of coffee the last time as well, and convinced them to not wash it for me.

So you didn't want them to wash the coffee or coffee cup before you used it???

We have emission inspections every year, but by the smog around they don't seem to be working!

If it = the car, then the MB dealer I go to have pre-printed signs to place on the dash for discriminating customers who do not want their car washed.

If it = coffee cup, the dealer I go to only have insulated disposable coffee cups, although I doubt they wash each one beforehand
