Speedo cables cheap enough, I expect a new clutch cable and some adjustment could be all thats needed too.

Did anyone else find it ironic that the location is given as Weybridge - isn't that where a lot of BX's end up? :shock:

You don;t need trade plates (Re: an earlier discussion).

I always book the car in with my local mot place, take out temporary insurance to get me home, and then buy tax backdated to cover the trip home once it's got its paperwork.

If the car isn't very roadworthy then don't do it unless you're brave.

Why backdate the tax? I've not bothered until the repairs and MOT are done...

Agreed! AA membership (or similar) is a good idea too :)
