Thanks a lot for your contributions guys. Very much appreciated. I'll begin by the cap even if just in need I've bought everything to replace the HG. But I'm dubious about it. BTW my cabby is very seldom above the 3k revs and if so around 3.5k. Never over. So... Anyway before any journey I've an ove...

Re: 29 year old and easy MOT

Thanks for your replies but unfortunately some didn't notice I'm living in France, hence awful custom duties or people - like in the previous link - not wanting any deal outside the mainland.
