The current MOT detailed just 2 advisories. Child seat fitted to rear and a tyre close to the limit. The MOT the year before just 2 advisories both tyres close to legal limit.
See the car has gone now, but just on this point I've seen a couple of W203's recently with pretty well nothing in their MOT histories. Mine gets the most horrendous list every year from the indie who looks after it! It seems like everything underneath is rusty and worn.
Mine is just about the hit 100K miles, I've had it since 5mths old, and it's had everything it's ever needed. No visible rust on the outside (touch wood ). As it's an estate it was built in Germany.
I can't believe my car could be so much worse than others - or, the other way around, that these cars would be much better than mine. MOT testers must work to extremely different standards.
