I've got mine booked in for a brake test on Thursday. Forecast is for 0 C but dry (I hope). I think I'll put the wind deflectors back on!!  Only a 20 mile round trip thankfully.

0 C with only wind deflectors you must be hard 😂.

Just stooopid!  It wasn't very warm when I took it for the MOT and I was pleasantly surprised at how it wasn't terrible!  The higher, more raked screen and high sides compared to a Westy make a huge difference. Only ever driven the Westy once without the doors on and hated it. Anything over about 20mph and the turbulence shook my glasses so much I couldn't see where I was going. Having a long back doesn't help either - I'm about 6' 4" when I'm sat down, IYSWIM.

I know what you mean about driving without doors, took mine for a brake test and emissions test. Lost my wooly hat but managed to keep my glasses on and I’m only 5’ 8”.

Dropped my car off at Daytuner yesterday, drove about 40 miles with the half and doors, what a difference driving with the doors makes. 
Hopefully Daytuner will be able to diagnose the misfire.

The car is still with Daytuner. Damian thinks there is a leak in the exhaust causing the lambda sensor to swing from one extreme to another, he is now trying to locate the leak. I will call him later this week.
