Default MOT Success

That's another year of MOT success. It's not failed one for three years now (and that was just a CV boot). It's a great car and I've never once regretted the purchase.

I'm not sure how accurate the CO2 and HC test is though...

In the fast idle test I had below results
CO2: Max limit 0.200 actual value 0.000
HC: Max limit 200 actual value 9

Maybe I should get a tax refund for cleaning the air!

Excellent news. I think these engines are incredibly clean even before all the add-ons. I know mine sailed through the MOT when one of the cats was just an empty box with a few bits of ceramic substrate rattling around inside!
