Chat/DiscussionKind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.
Hi chaps and chapettes. There's a guy with a Greek import (I have no idea if it's UK registered) Mk1 Ford Capri but it has been fitted with a Sierra 1.6 Pinto SOHC engine. No other "modifications" from what I know (not seen it in the flesh). Will this need any special inspections to register it as MOT exempt after he gets his first one or will he have to pay for a VOSA inspection or whatever it is to get it on the road?
Thanks in advance.
It's official, I'm a clueless idiot.

You'd need to check on the https://www.gov.uk/ site for a definitive answer, but I'm guessing he may have a problem making it 'MOT exempt' - basically, to do this, you're declaring the car has no modifications.
As I say (write) check on the DVLA/VOSA website though.

What are their ideas of modifications that won't allow a car to be mot exempt? Would adjustable beam and a set of period sprintstars?
I'd assumed that if/when it eventually reaches us over here it would be an automatic thing as long as car had an existing MOT
