2012 MOT Rule changes was created by slacker
Some of the rules are changing, apparently these are some of the new additions:

1. Removing the ign key and making sure the steering locks
2. Any dash warning light not working or staying on,even brake fluid light, any light.
3. All ball joint boots not to have any splits in them
4. Inner cv boots
5. Driver's seat must adjust forward and back.
6. Any lens that has had light reduced (smoked lenses)
7. Corroded power steering pipes inc coolers
8. Catalytic converter missing (deemed to be illegal as from next year)
9. Fitment of HIDs to non-hid cars (need to have self-levelling and wash lights to have HIDs)


If Pacman had affected us as kids we'd be running around in dark rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive music.
