    Approx cost to get this through an MOT?

    A friend of a friend is looking to sell his 182 that failed an MOT a couple of months ago. instead of fixing the problems he just got a new car on finance. Anyways, he is looking to get rid but I'm just querying how much I could expect to pay to get the below issues fixed, I know its not that...

    Very hesitant to accelerate.

    My 182 has just been very hesitant to accelerate on the last few minutes of about an hours drive. In fact, wasn't even hesitant, just didn't accelerate for approx 5 seconds even with my foot flat to the floor. Dropped a gear and it picks up but then the same issue happens. Had the same problem...

    Best headphones for under £200?

    Sick of my beats now and want something new. Atm im leaning towards AiAiAi TMA-1s. They will be used for outdoor use so cant leak much sound and mainly used for Drum and Bass. Any other suggestions other than the TMA-1s?

    Last week I had a flat battery and since replacing the battery the engine management light has been on constant. The car drives perfectly so i dont really having any idea what it could be.

    My 172 won't go above about 5,500 rpm when in gear.

    Started s few days ago, when the car gets to about 5,000 rpm it just increase the revs really slowly, almost feels like its just hitting the limiter, which of course its way off. Any ideas what could be causing this?

    Laser wheel alignment worth the extra cash?

    And anybody know of any in the Bridgend area? It needs the alignment done anyway so was thinking of getting the laser alignment done.

    Taking the 172 on a 4500mile road trip, do I dare?!?

    Will be mainly 5 long stretches of driving. Most Ive done before was a trip to the 'ring last year. This time would mean driving close to 1000miles in a day :/

    Judders under hard breaking.

    Getting some pretty agressive juddering under hard breaking over the last few weeks. Had an MOT last week and they did not come up as an issue. Had a quick search on here and it seems to be quite a few possible things, although aparently warped brakes are a bit of a myth these days? A quick...
