Yep took the 2.5 for its MOT today and she failed on one thing........


The number plate! It is a German font and the spacing isnt correct, also its says Vee Dub at the bottom instead of the postcode of the manufacturer.
I did know all this and that it was not strictly legal but i never really thought too much about the MOT i didnt think it was part of it yet, turns out it was! Hey Ho.

Anyway, the garage made me up a new pair for 20 notes, i stuck them on and bobs yer. Second time lucky.
Actually very pleased thats all she failed on.

Just a word of warning, watch out on the MOT. It was actually the spacing they failed it on, not the font.....

I think we can expect alot worse to come - many of the minor things will become fine'able offences and heavily enforced. Lets face it, the Gov't is pretty damn skint and needs to use us as big fat cash cows!!!! Won't be long before we all have to have some sort of monitor that measures the quantity of air we suck in, then get billed for it with some sort of VAT aded to it aswell just for good measure!!!LOL
