    Sorry no dodgy MOT,s. lol.

    with regard to the mirrors. you need at least 2 mirrors. and the drivers side one is important. if the glass is cracked but you can still use it, should be ok, the other mirror is tricky. as long as you can see behind [how about moving the seat so that helps???] also depends on the tester,how he views the items and how they affect the car and how its used.

    hope this helps coupe36

    the standard mirrors for the test is a good idea. when you,ve left you can put the M3.s back on if you can set them up correctly? the misty headlamp can cause problems with operation. [bad earth etc] and affect the beam pattern. try drilling a small hole in the top of the unit and leave the light on for a while and it should dry out.
