Why MoT tests a complete waste of time.
Okay, just got my 156 Sele back from MoT test. It passed. Total cost was £203 including a short service, MoT test, and an AC service inc. regassing etc.
Now I was convinced the car should fail. The front tyres are totally bald on the inside quarter. The rest of the tyre is on the wear limiters. The heat shield above the cat is loose and rattles over every bump, the headlights are out of alignment, one is noticeably higher than the other when I park against a wall.
All of these faults, and it is still fully roadworthy. No advisory notes, nothing!
MoT tests aren't worth the paper they are written on!
Now, don't get me wrong, I'm pleased it passed, but it shows that an MoT is not a useful test of a cars safety!
