    Spoke to an MOT tester today and he clarified the position. The new MOT standards are for 2008 vehicles and above and they come into force at the end of May and they will be very strict. I am looking for a pre 2005 sprinter with the 2.7 five cylinder engine as there are no DPF exhaust system fitted to this motor.

    Having read about there being new rules about HID leadlamps, I was interested to read exactly what they say, because my motorhome has after-market HID lamps in headlights that are sometimes supplied with HID and sometimes supplied with bulbs. So the exact wording might make a big difference.

    I'm not a huge fan of third-hand info, especially when it has been through a journalist's misunderstanding filter. So I decided to compare the "before the change" MOT tester's manual with the "after the change" draft version.

    I can't see any difference except in the phrasing and layout of the text.

    Before: m4s01000701 to m4s01000805

    After: https://assets.publishing.service.go...2018-draft.pdf pages 53 to 56

    Can anyone else identify where it is a change?

    My brother has five cars, one of which needs an MOT. Though he does take them all to be tested for his own peace of mind.

    Year of vehical

    Like out van is a 55 plate, registered in 2006 but according to the vin plate (as I found out when getting the new engine) it was built in 2004. So what will be the date they go from, surely it can't be reg date if they state the year of manufacture?
