Mine sailed through too Newie - word of advice though think about fitting a Sun Visor, and blue (that shine clear) side lights and if you run a FULL Decat, make sure you have a cat replacement pipe handy Luckily OllyP was there to help me out and a mechanic who fought my case

Otherwise all was fine I'm pleased to report

Yea they were Newie

Basically these were the problems (I'm sure Olly will jump in if I have got this wrong)

First up the car wouldn't pass the emissions test. As you all know I am running a Full DeCat. Well to save time and hassle Olly helped me out with a Catted Centre Section, which he kindly swapped for me. However with the car being cold the emissions were still high They let the car tick over for a bit but still the same result. They added something to the petrol to see if that would lower the emissions but still nothing So a guy took the car out for a drive brought it back and she then flew through. Our thinking is that the cat needed to warm up and a spirited drive helped no-end. So this was fine. Then came the blue side light bulbs. Now whilst they are blue in colour they are infact uprated Philips jobs and do infact give off a nice bright white light. Anyway again the mechanic argued this point and won the argument.......and then there was the Visor. Again the mechy argued his point and won once more Apart from these minors I also have crack in the windscreen that needs doing but it is Zone B so its not a Failure.

Anyway it was nice for once to have a guy talking to the MOT Testers who knows what hes talking about....no doubt I would have been changing my bulbs and tearing off my visor if I'd have taken it.
