Just spent £270 to get car through MOT (and that included a 10% discount). Mainly OSF track rod end play - quite pricey reckon 2.5 hrs labour (includes 4 wheel tracking). Had the NSF go 12 months ago.

Wonder if this is common on Espaces (heavy front end) suprise, suprise they already had the parts in stock.

Could have shopped around, but just wanted to get car sorted (Renault Dealer)

Too much is the honest answer, but hey ho.

Had new discs and pads all round in March (cost me £500 ), then a ball joint 4 months ago (another £65)

And just had it serviced and MOT'd this week. To pass its MOT it needed a track rod end and 2 new tyres. Probably looking at another £400+ for that lot !

But I couldnt live without my Lag !

Think you need to find a new garage. Where the F*** do you buy your tyres? Harrods
