    Default Now have MOT !!! emissions passed !

    Further to this thread:
    http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=50795

    I changed the air filter, fitted BOSH super 4 plugs and put some Wynn's clean burn in the tank and it did the trick !

    The emmissions went from 1.06% down to 1.00% I didn't expect such a difference but there you go and now have full MOT !

    There was no re-test fee either

    The italian tune on the way there might have helped too LOL

    So thanks to all that gave me advice on how to sort it out

    It's such a relief that it was so easy to get the emissions down

    I'm a bit surprised because it has been well maintained and I only really changed serviceable items (unless the fuel additive is good stuff) - perhaps the VX service intervals are too long and there are loads of Vec's out there running with high emissions ? !

    As for the 75 Lee, well, i'm not quite ready for it yet LMAO
