In Topic: Are Mot Advisory's A Legal Requirement?

26 August 2015 - 08:42 PM

Could the MOT have actually logged the advisories but they just didn't give you the sheet to accompany it?  That happened to me once, I knew there would be some but all I was given was the pass certificate.  You can check the MOT online and this will show any if they were logged.  May be worth a look just to confirm!

I have the wide angle mobius and my dad has the nextbase 402g.  Both are good quality, however if you pause a video recorded with the nextbase you can read numberplates of vehicles coming towards you (I'm sure I've seen it where both us and them were doing over 40-50mph) but with the mobius it's just a blur.  You can make them out on parked cars when you're doing 30mph, but that seems to be about the limit.  The lens on the mobius is a lot wider than the nextbase despite having a smaller angle (131 vs 140) and is very fish-eyed.  For reference in my Fiesta it can see the entire windscreen and both of the small triangular side windows in front of the doors, the nextbase in my dads Focus can't see more than about 2/3 of the windscreen.  The mobius is more compact as it doesn't have the screen, but at the same time doesn't have features such as speed/gps recording and the ability to automatically 'protect' a recording to prevent it being overwritten in the case of an accident.  You can press the mode button on it though to protect a recording manually.

Same problem here, though mine happens whether the car is hot or cold.  I was originally convinced it had something to do with the clutch pedal as the creak changes pitch as I move it, but it only happens when the engine is running and in gear.  The switch behind the pedal that tells the car if it's pressed or not also creaks a little bit but that's unrelated lol.  As said above though, it also happens when accelerating and lifting off which sort of rules out being the pedal itself.  I mentioned it to the dealer at it's first service last year but they didn't find anything (apparently they greased the pedal just in case though).


Edit: found a post I made about it a while back: http://www.fordowner...k-from-footwell
