Got ALL electrics etc... all working and good to go but literally just noticed 10 minutes ago that I have windscreen washer fluid holes attached at the front but they are not attached to anything and obviously do...

    Might be a little late to the party but have just read that the EU are considering banishing the pre1960 MOT exemption law and pushing it to all 30 year old cars..? pre1984... Anyone else read this? This would be very interesting.

    Dunno about you guys running lowered beetles, but my beetle eats these things for breakfast! I have found good reviews on these..ordered some so gonna try them.. Very very durable unlike the rubbish rubber ones that get chewed up every year come MOT time...

    Have just had my baywindow van fail an MOT because the new panels should have been seam welded, rather than welded with a line of spots. In fact the test station even refused to test it, because of the lack of seam welding - saying the vehicle was not safe because of it. The new panels in...

    Hi, I'd like to put a 1303 through an MOT. It drives, but there still might be 101 things wrong with it, just none that I can tell. That is, except of the rust and rot. From what I've read rust/rot 400mm from a structural point is a fail. So, the million dollar question, where are the...

    I've been reading some people's comments on Facebook and other forums which have made me laugh through their lack of knowledge and misinformation about the whole issue. So I thought I'd post up an official letter from the DVLA which has been sent out to some car clubs about the whole issue so...

    Just a word of warning. I've kept quiet about this, because things were getting messy between myself and DVLA but, after a year-long battle, it's all sorted now, so I thought I'd post up my experiences so others can learn from them! Last July I took a car for an MOT in North London. It was on a...

    Hello all, Im sure I'll get flamed for "not checking the FAQ thread", but trying to relate half those points to a fifty year old car does not really work...:incheek: Car: 1963 Type 1 The front bump stop on the fron beam on my car is falling apart, on both sides. I assume this is an MOT...

    I have a 2003 Mexican 1600i Beetle. As it is an import and therefore there are no figures for emissions testing - can I remove the cat? My exhaust/cat is knackered and I can get a better deal on a stainless exhaust only. mexibug :bandit:
