With the new mot rules, would this be a failure? Thought warning lights weren't allowed any more. Or is it just safety related lights like ABS and DTC etc?

Not all warning lights, just more than before.

Stop/Start was never in, and hasnt been added:

One I hadnt noticed before is HID bulbs in halogen fittings; I'll bet that'll catch a few folks out, it the fittings havent melted already :lol:
E87 118d, stock, plus PDC control unit drain, Parrot, debadged, Mothercare baby shades (but no babies), and occassionally a good layer of wax. Instantly forgettable, and thats the way I like it.

Yep, and they're looking for removed or gutted Cats & DPF's now as well. Could get interesting...
