    Indeed, and have it with my current MOT place for all my cars. Worryingly he is getting close to retirement though.

    Mine retired last year, well deserved, but trying to find somewhere that you trust not to be a dic* is a challenge, especially as the gov. forces even more restrictions on the MOT stations.

    My latest was saying even the high beam/ light check thing will be wired into the MOT system! Seems inconsistent to me that they are being that ana* about some aspects, i.e. effectively not trusting the MOT tester to do their job; but don't require older cars to have MOTs any more! Still, civil servants for you!

    It is. Long story short I have thought about doing MOT's when I retire. A few courses and obviously some knowledge is required up front. Not sure it's realistic for me but I am in a group on FB that does MOT courses and I am seeing some of what you say.

    The lighting thing will also catch aftermarket HID's I think. My Z3 has at some point been fitted with aftermarket ones. I suspect I will have to remove them.
