Ugh, I brought my car for its NCT (National Car Test) yesterday. It's sort of like the MOT in the UK, designed to get the old bangers off the road.
Unfortunately, mine seems to qualify as well and they kindly informed me that my exhaust was leaking so badly that they couldn't do the emissions test. So I have to go and fork out *more* money to get the exhaust fixed, come back and pay them for a retest, and it could still fail on the emissions section. Isn't life grand?

Of course, if I hadn't spent so much money on DVD's the last week I might be a little less annoyed. But hey, I just think of all the money I saved by buying them at up to half price!
