    Hi All
    Was just wondering, my car is gonna be 3 years old in January, does that mean I get it MOT'd then, or is it the following year ? and will I be reminded of that as well ?

    Cheers
    Paul

    Yes you need to MOT it in January on its 3rd birthday.

    You may get reminded by your normal audi dealer but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Cheers
    Rich.

    It is also worth doing it in the month before the 3 year birthday as if the MOT finds anything wrong with the car, you've still got an Audi Warranty to put things right.

    Bingo!

    I did exactly that...thankfully!
    An MOT fail was handed to me after my 2 year and 11 month old S3 was tested just inside it's warranty period:
    2 suspension bushes worn out, one track rod end worn out and a cracked fuel filter!
    Not impressed at all..

    Fortunately, Audi fixed them all...

    When your tax disk reminder comes it will tell you that your vehicle requires an MOT.
