Yes horray, The little bugger oh! I mean the little Ypsilon passed the dreaded N.C.T  Grin I had a very enthuastic tester, the lights were showing a little bit of beam in the wrong direction with the beam benders but he was'nt to concerned. He was taken with the general overall good condition of the car. Now this raises the question, did he pass the car because he liked it or because in was road worthy in every way. I know it's a very stiff test but it has to last for two years, this is an EU directive so I woulden't be suprised if this system came to the UK. The 1980 cut off date is a bit of a bummer as the Have trouble taking readings for emissions even off my Thema and Grale and they are twenty years old. Grin also they cant test the brakes on the Grale because it's four wheel drive.  Tongue

Congratulations Dave.
I'm a bit surprised they allow you to get away with LHD headlamps by using beam benders.
Construction and Use Regulations in the UK specifically say it's a NO NO, although a lot depends on having a sympathetic MOT tester.

Yes as I said I think it's down to the guy who tests the car, if the car is woad worthy and you put effort into prepairing the car they seem to go easy Smiley

Bought another Ypsilon yesterday Huh? I must be mad, this one was traded in to Tractamotors in Blanchardstown, west Dublin, It's black wit a 1.1 L engine, unfortunatly no engine parts are compatable with the 1.2L . The body is in good shape and it is a one owner car. How much I hear you ask ? 150.00 and I drove it home everything works . What a shame I have no paperwork for it. Smiley Thanls David.
