Upcoming MOT changes

Pistonheads - Still to come are requirements to fail a car on a lit engine management light and also to fail diesels if a factory-fitted particulate filter has been removed. This comes into force next month and might scupper anyone who's had theirs whipped out by any of the companies offering removal service and ECU reflash. However you might get away with it if the job's a clean one. A spokesman for the DVSA told us that rather than check via computer whether the car was fitted with a DPF it's "a visual inspection of the exhaust system".
