... and sanitized the bank transfer!
Here's the note on my guys website:

Anyone needing work doing or an MOT near Northampton let me know and I'll pass on details.
Don't know but I did!
Got a text from MOT place (inTown Automotive Northampton) - still open and looks like I'm going for the booked one on Monday - don't fancy what inevitably going to be a mad rush to get it done, once the six months extension is drawing near.
The service at MB Northampton (Sytner) was cancelled though ... it's going to be extremely annoying, seeing the overdue notice in the instrument cluster, in about 350 miles or so ...
I had 2 beetles in the 60's, a 1960 1200cc & a 1966 1300cc. Both had well over 100K KMS on the clock when I bought them, I was in Germany at the time. Did all my own servicing, I think it was 10K KMS oil changes in those days. The oil filter was a wire gauze which you dropped out of the sump & cleaned it. Both did use a little oil between services, but not very much.
My service on the 7th of April has been cancelled by the dealership. I might take mine to my Indy if he is still in business next month. Unfortunately, both our cars need a service in April......but as we are not doing any mileage should be fine.
After careful consideration, I have now cancelled the MOT on Monday - it's not going to fall apart without it, and working through the town centre back and forth, or hanging around the place for an hour, doesn't seem such an attractive proposition...
Rebook your date now.
You know there will be a massive rush come 6 months time as the deferred ones will be due at the same time as the normal expiries - something that will create issues for years....
Yes, that's what I thought, when I decided to go ahead with the booked date, but then ... the car is just a bunch of metal, and yes, the new MOT is unlikely to only cost £20 as the cancelled one was, and it's going to be a mad rush to get through, for sure ... something about taking chances - not such a fun anymore
A friend of mine runs a garage that does MOT's and they are open and continuing as normal but with extra provisions in place
Not sure how lots are remaining open. We can't get any parts (mb or aftermarket),or tyres.
