    They are nippy indeed. I'm impressed with the performance considering it's a diesel.

    Car looks RUUUUUUUDE.

    I can see an MOT failure straight away though?

    Looks luverly mate

    very nice colour as well.

    Re the diesel// Diesel is currently £1.25 iirc at the pump and a dude I know who runs several petrol stations said that Derv will be £1.50 per litre in the next 3 months

    Also, as Mr RYMs says.....dont forget to swap your clear indicators out before MOT time or it will fail

    Will only fail if they don't flash orange,I'm guessing it has those silver bulbs that show orange

    I would first advise the customer that unless it's removed it will fail

    I would then hit the PRS button and try to get hold of them, if no luck then I would bring down the fail hammer!



    But in reality maybe I would remove it,But if a MOT inspector is looking on here then maybe I wouldn't

    My missus drives a particular make of car and it too should fail the mot...

    The pillar between the windscreen and driver window obscures visibility when going around right hand bends, corners or roundy round E bouts

    M.O.T is due in a week and half, will they fail it on the clear lens indicaters? Thanks for the comments and the info guys. I'm sure the previous owner put it through test with these indicators on.

    No mate... so long as your indicators flash orange which i'm sure they do then you have no worries.
