Just had the MOT done and the advisories are:
NS headlight beam pointing slightly to the left.
Rear dampers weeping tiny bit of oil. (Eibach pro street S ones!)
Handbrake efficiency poor at 16%.
All good other than that, and to think I was worried about emissions! Lol

Always good to tick that box. You have the same coil overs as me. My rear near side shocker also as a slight weep. Wonder if its a common problem with this make and model.

Well done Edd! All cheap fixes, contact eibach they will refurb them :)
The comments say that both rear shocks had a light mist of oil. I was using loads of wd40 under there last week trying to change the exhaust and it was driven to the garage in the rain. Maybe the tester thought they were leaking when in fact it was water! I have known stranger things. He road tested the brakes too rather than roller tested them.
Will try and have a look at the handbrake, any ideas guys as it's hydraulic is it not?

Handbrake is not hydraulic, it's cable operated on the R32.

Just had a play and tightened the nut under the little centre tray just in front of the ashtray. There was a fair bit of play in that. Is there any adjustment on the callipers or cables anywhere else?
