The friendly tester at the TüV test centre let my Coupe pass this morning which is a relief after doing a long list of small taks in the cold recently:

The car is mechanically in pretty good condition but three new problems were pointed out to me:
1. Needs as new cat because the inner part is rattling inside the outer one but it is still working. Are there any cats to avoid or will any that fit do? I just need a standard one?
2. The gaitors on the wishbones are cracking so I will need new wishbones I guess. Again, any ones better than others? I can get Lemförder, Ruville, Meyle, etc.
Last point was not so unexpected as the car is slowly rusting away. The sills are not in the best of shape and need some work. The degree of repair is down to me I guess and I have to think about before committing to a plan.
Oh well, I think my wallet is going o empty a little more still
