    Default Passed 3rd MOT today.

    Hi guys, I'm happy to report my car passed it's 3rd MOT today with no problems or advisories, A mechanic mate of mine had checked it out beforehand, serviced it, and changed the trailing arm bushes, (£30.00 off ebay) I even felt brave enough to leave the black tinted rear lights on, which only passed because of the red reflectors I've attached to the chrome strip. As for the emmisions test, he tried it several times and couldn't get any reading whatsoever, he said he's never seen a car with such a clean tail pipe and showing no smoke at all, so it seems the DPF is working well. I said maybe it should be in a lower tax bracket then, to which he agreed. So I'm a very happy bunny today. Regards Col.

    So, what did you actually photoshop to get it through, LOL!

    God stuff mate, always nice when it flies through.

    I had my B done 3 weeks ago, went straight through with no advisories, and thats a 2001 with nearly a 100k (then again it gets looked after).


    Bye bye Vec B

    Thanks John, apparantly only the auto's and estates have the DPF, I've never heard or noticed it doing a regen, but I'm assuming it has one due to the clean and shiney tail pipe.

    Thanks G. My car's done just over 61,000 now, with the swirl bar lying useless on top of the engine for at least 30,000 with no limp mode or misfires, so as long as it's running fine it's staying that way.

    There's always something to spoil the good mood, I'm fortunate that mine's free through mobilty.
