    Re: New mot emissions

    Your MOT test will be based on the age of the engine.
    You could be asked to prove it....... If so, it’s worth getting a letter from BMW UK confirming the year of manufacture for your engine serial...

    Re: Mike's Cabrio Build

    Definitely ask them to narrow the transmission tunnel by 40mm in the drivers footwell.
    Depending how tall you are, having the seat floor lowered for the driver is good - I'm long in my back, so...

    Re: Mike's Cabrio Build

    Hi Berry

    The footwell is very restricted in a Marlin - I doubt you will be able to fit the standard E46 accelerator DBW pedal.

    I had exactly the same experience - I had to remind the tester the emissions are based on the age of the engine ( I have a letter from BMW stating the year of manufacture) and it passed.
