    Default mot changes

    just got a mot reminder for the uk turbo and they very kindly gave me a leaflet on the new mot laws ffs.

    looks like the cat law is coming into effect, although it says for vehicles after 1st july 2002

    This is from the list, High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps, washing and levelling system, they've always been illegal without washers and levelling system now it looks like they want to test them

    most cars have a leveling system of sorts, manual or automatic, as for the washers, as said before, it aint prob to fit
