Re the HID headlights, the exact MOT wording from the 2012 MOT manual is different from the waffle quoted on many websites.

Exact wording cut & pasted here:
"(HID) or LED dipped beam headlamps may be fitted with headlamp washers and a suspension or headlamp self leveling system.
Where such systems are fitted, they must work;"


So it DOES NOT say that HIDs must have self-leveling and washers.
It just says that if the car has a form of self-leveling or headlight washers, then they must work.
FYI the Novimat (as in the option on 156 Sportwagons) counts as self-leveling.

Simple.

motherlickers!! :rant:

We can always opt for the hollow DPF I suppose..
I'll have to check, but I thought it only referred to Cats (they must now be present on any car from 1992-on even if it can pass an emissions test without it), not DPFs.

I wish it was more specific so all the nuggets with aftermarket hid in normal headlights that are blinding get failed and gave to put it back to standard.
