Fast and Comfortable but not without a few niggles

I have done 77k miles (to Jan 12 2019) and it's never let me down but has needed:
New keyfob
Waterpump (Dec 2017)
Rear Dampers (June 2018)
Gearbox input shaft bearing (Jan 2019)
Rear NS coil spring (Jan 2019)

I always use Shell V-Power, and on a run it'll do high 40s mpg, but reduced by local runs.
Last MOT reported advisories for both NS and OS Lower Suspension arm pin or bush worn but no movement. ([5.3.4 (a) (i)])
Thank goodness I invested in a 5 year manufacturers warrany for £930!!!!
