IVA pass NW MDA!

Today was a very good day. I went with fellow NW club member Mark Edwards today with his MDA to the IVA test centre in Chadderton, Oldham. A few items which could be fixed on the day BUT ............it Passed!! I think the smile says it all.

Cheers
Mike

Re: IVA pass NW MDA!

Hi Mark ........ just catching up with the Forum postings ....... can I offer my congratulations.

I too have an MDA car, which is painted in Ferrari Rosso Corsa red ..... this causes much amusement to those who understand the 'tongue in cheek' aspect of the car being in a Ferrari colour.


Well done and enjoy yourself.
