    Re: De-cat's and MOT's

    no rear door handles is a failure???? never heard that one before. The only problem is your car is manufactured with handles where as the rx8 is manufactured without them.

      how do i deal with that.......

      it states that the rear dorrs should be able to be opened from the outside...
      but surely an rx8 is the same as you have to open the front doors in order to open the rear?

      anyone got any ideas or know anyone who can help, dont really want to change rear doors just for an MOT
      1. Just replace the HIDs with std bulbs.
      2. An RX8 will pass because it's possible to open the rear doors from the outside, doesn't matter that the front doors have to be opened first to gain access to the handles.
      If you know anyone with the same car as you, borrow their doors for the test, then just swap them back over afterwards.

        If the car is presented for the test running LPG it's emissions are tested as LPG, if it's presented running petrol it will be tested as petrol.

        If the tester can obviously see that the cat has been removed then it will fail as from April.
