... that I'm actually gonna shove it through the rigid swiss MOT inspection next month. - Wish me luck!
I got the all important "Prüfungen" date entry (pt. 39) in the car papers!


Which means the car took the big hurdle of the rigid swiss inspection. = Another 2 years of MOT! - Phew! - Granted, the car got rejected first, but since I had already all the control arms replaced in the summer all what was needed was the replacement of some oil seals, a new spring cap under the left rear shocks, and a reset of the airbag control box. Then the car passed on the second visit.

During the check the examiner informed me that the car hasn't been much in winter use by the former owner(s) as there was no rust at the usual places on a Audi S6 at 18+ years of age. - I was happy to hear that.

Success!

Search for the fault:


Yep, right front coil spring simply gave up on life. - I was waiting on a red light in Zürich when out of nowhere: "Crack!" :lmao:
No further damage. - Both front coil springs are now replaced, and all is well again in Barkland.
