Re: New 'stricter' MOTs...

Good decision. I am in the mindset that if I know that my car is OK or will be OK for a while to come after work xyz is done, then I am keeping it. New* cars have far too many unknowns and will probably cost you more than you paid for the car in the first place. Especially older cars, like 406s. My ...

Re: Pointy Indicators on modern cars

The first thing is to enforce people to actually *use* the blasted indicators. Most seem to have forgotten of their existence. Or simply don't care... :evil:

Re: New 'stricter' MOTs...

Had my MOT last week. Passed without an advisory despite the gutted DPF and a remap. Emissions reading was 0.61, which is about the sticker value of 0.51 but the original sticker has gone AWOL and they used a 3.00 as the limit :supafrisk:

Re: Pointy Indicators on modern cars

It's 3D TV all over again. A lot of hype but ultimately noone cares and will demise pretty quickly.

And, yes, I *hate* those indicators. I have urges to rear end those Aldis... Well, I have that urge to rear end any Aldi but...

Yes, post-2008 was also my understanding but who knows. My 407 is 2007 but clearly has (had!) a DPF filter...

Re: Another MOT shake up

So my 2007 will still be Euro 4... hmm.

But the rulez say that any car that was originally fitted with one should still have one. And you still have an empty shell for the DPF... Eh.. :?

Re: Another MOT shake up

Yeah, that's the ambiguous thing - any "visible" smoke from a DPF car is a fail. Though, in neutral, there is very little smoke no matter how hard I rev. However. They also need to use the "plate" emission limit, which is on the sticker in the engine bay, which in my case is 0.52 whatevs. Looking at...

Re: Another MOT shake up

Sadly, this means I'll probably have to put the DPF filter back in (have the non-bashed out one in the garage), though I'll keep the remap :twisted: ! I will wait and see what happens before doing anything but I can always just put the filter on for the MOT and remove afterwards :supafrisk: Wonder w...
