Unfortunately the MOT centre used by PCB dated the MOT certificate with the date of the test rather than the date it was actually due, this lost some two weeks flexibility on next years MOT.
The mileage was just under 11k and the rear tyres were renewed with the great advantage of returning to the original level of road noise, wonderful to hear.

  Maintenance
Notes -
2012 May - 9th Service, As the car is a concours winner, I was a little disappointment to have what seemed like a brake fluid run, down the drivers rear caliper after a fluid change
I am very happy to share that PCB and thier c
onscientious team replaced the item, it was good to see Nick fitting the caliper, he is one of the many staff that have been providing customer support and advise for many years at PCB, as well as carrying out all the skilled work required to maintain these lovely cars.

  Tyrers
Notes -
Annoying tyre noise developed after 5400 miles even though there is a lot of tread left, this had to patiently lived with until 11,000 miles when the rears were replaced.
