Default Stunning?

Just had a look at where my old 414SLI (N701REW) was in terms of MOT and tax. It is no longer taxed and tested but there was an interesting "advisory" on its last MOT :-

"Date tested
16 September 2017
PASS
Mileage
31,740 miles
MOT test number
4746 2405 1788
Test location
View test location
Expiry date
15 September 2018
Advisory notice item(s)
stunning
What are advisories?"

Copied from the MOT website!!!

Sold to a chap called Clive (Midlands accent I think?) who, at the time, had an MG ZT. Still on here maybe??? Mike

Advisories are recommendations to replace worn but not immediately dangerous items.

Yes. I know. I've removed that question from the quote which came from the MOT site. Cheers. It was just that I couldn't believe that an MOT tester would write the word "Stunning" in the advisory section of the MOT.

Could simply be a spelling mistake.---

No. He was right. The car was stunning!



Just hope that it still lives on.
