Buggerchops MOT changes,   post 2006 diesel with DPF "mod"  will fail but much worse if your steering box is dripping (and who hasn't had fluids dripping from their box Mr Botham?)  it's a fail.  Quick book up all the 20th May MOTs.

At least my old 806 with the dpf removal will be ok even if it is dangerous and will kill everyone. Bit of a shit article really.

My Civic is 2008 and never had a DPF, even out of the factory. I spoke to my garage I use and they said my car is too old for the new lower smoke limits. So should be completely unaffected.

Done properly how will the tester ever know?


Visual inspection of the DPF and the MOT will have much lower smoke level limits for those that required a DPF (basically after ~2010).
Current Fleet:
1974 MGB GT - A stereotypical classic car.
2007 Honda Civic EX CTDi - The reliable runner that is like the family pet.
2010 Aldi A4 - Owned to placate the wife on my crap buying


My history: 2003 Clio II 1.2 16v (First car), 2003 Honda Civic 3dr 1.7 CTDi (Isuzu lump), 1992 Mazda MX5 1.6, 2005 Mazda RX8 192bhp, 2005 Saab 9-3 1.9TiD 150bhp, 2007 Honda Civic 2.2 CTDi, 2004 Renault Scenic 1.6 Auto (Now Kiltox FiL), 2004 Saab 9-5 2.3t (Now Hooli), 2004 Smart Roadster 80bhp
Wife history (that she used/owned but I had frequent use of): 2002 Renault Clio II 1.2 16v (Billabong!), 2006 Mazda MX5 1.8, 2004 VW Golf 1.6 FSI, 2005 Renault Scenic II 2.0 (went bad from the drive back when buying it!), 2002 Vauxhall Astra 1.6 16v (now phil_lihp ex-colleague), 2005 Renault Laguna II v6 (Now angle)

Might be fun as the person who told me how to get my DPF "sorted" is the same one who will be testing it...
