....and it passed!!!
Picked it up after work today and was presented with a new MOT certificate and the invoice for about a tenner more than the price of an MOT
Invoice stated 2 x 12volt AMBER bulbs plus fitting, so concluded there must have been a couple a bit on the pale side for it to pass (turns out it was both rear bulbs) but I thought 'Well at least it's cheaper than a re-test'
By the time I got home however I was starting to get a (very tiny) bit annoyed. The guy who does the MOTs for that garage live right opposite me and I've got him to do a couple of jobs on other cars we've had, at the weekends etc cash in hand. Now if it had been the other way round ie me doing the testing, I think I would have passed the car but made sure the neighbour got the bulbs changed ASAP
Seems a bit picky to me as I certainly didn't notice they were particularly dim, is there a colour chart they follow?
I know it's only a tenner but it's the principle
But all in all chuffed it passed
