    will this spell the start of more mods

    Changes to MOT rules in 2012 - Are you ready? - Autoblog UKNew MOT changes means cars with HID headlights should be fitted with self leveling and headlight washers which are to be checked on MOT

    now we all knew that where supposed to have them but they are now going to fail on MOT if not fitted

    any thoughts?

    Some of these rules will be taken with a pitch of salt by testers, theres always going to be to the letter testers, and those that let little things pass and as already stated all you have to do is unplug the HIDS and stick ya standard bulbs in.

    If you've got a none airbag steering wheel fitted that will be an arse having to swop that back over.........
