    I took my '07 9-3 SE In for an MOT today and it failed on one count - the power steering fluid leaks. Given that I've been topping it up with CHF for a while I didn't realise it was a failable offence... Anyway, it's also due a 120000 mile service. Am I going to end up shelling out more cash...
