    Just dropped off the Cupra for it's first Her Majestys inspection....will it pass, stay tuned.

    In the meantime I've done a fun poll..

    I'm having a glass half empty week this week :headhurt: so I'm expecting a fail on something, possibly the APR exhaust. :whistle:

    at long as you have a cat in it cant fail just to it being an aftermarket exhaust... providing the emissions are ok mind you

    I'm hoping not, though its got a little blow at the back where it joins the centre pipe, clamp needs looking at we think.

    I'm just having a pessimistic week, everything seems to be going wrong for me this week...so I'm expecting a fall :doh:

    Re: ZBOYD's Cupra.. First M.O.T. Will it pass?

    Serviced every 12 months, and got a brake fluid and oil change earlier this year in addition to its last service in 2009.

    Done just over 9900 miles. :cartman:

    Its not had its 3rd year service yet, mainly because I've not had time, but I can't see it being a contributing factor. Aiming to get it done in the next couple of weeks the service indicator has only just flashed up. Service in 18 days or 7600 miles. :D

    I usually take it over to Ted Johnson's, but just have not had the opportunity to get it over to them at the moment. As the MOT is now due, I decided to drop it off with the testing station near work so at least its got the official paperwork sorted.

    I will probably take it to Awesome though for its service, its got so many modifications that they have fitted, it seems a bit pointless to go to the dealer for its 3rd year, may as well book it in at Awesome.

    I just about to ask if you still take your modded cupra to the dealers or not but you just answered it :)

    It should pass, unless that lorry tyre lever they use to poke around goes through a sill ;)

    That is such low milage, you must still be on the original tank of fuel :D

    Mines due this october, I recon I'll hit 80k by then :blink:

    I voted pass as knowing how much you love that car nothing should be amiss.

    You've just reminded me that I need to SORN one of our vehicles that failed a week ago as we're struggling to find some HT leads for it and won't be able to get it MOT'd in time :(

    No advisories either, but that exhaust is still blowing. A job for Awesome.

    I bet the tester looked at the mileage and went are you having a laugh...PASS!!

    Nice one! Mines is in tomorrow for its first MOT so finger crossed (35K on it so far) I am having a similiar week to you Mark...everything is half empty and everything I do seems to be wrong with someone down the line.
    Hopefully it won't cover the tester in soot when he does the smoke test :lol:
