    I know of at least one AGP SS that has passed its MOT with flying colours. I'd remove the box for it though.
    Weekdays: Campovolo A500
    Weekends: White AGP SS

    yeh i still have the cat on,
    i have looked on dlva site and the abarth range of cars are not on there
    plus the 155 has a 159 co2, so the esseesse must have more but the limit for the G rate cars is 165 co2

    According to the Elaboration certificate the Esseesse has an identical CO2 level as the standard car.

    If you're worried take a copy of your certificate with you - that should confuse them enough to just pass it :thumb:

    If they cant find the exact car they have to do a pre cat test for emissions.
    It will pass the normal agp emission anyway with Tmc exhaust and tuning box. Mine did anyway. I got it check after fitting them both.

    It's all the suspension I'd be more concerned with. Although I have got a few tips on how to get it through all these if they do find play in anything and it is excessive. Mots are just visual checks so if for instance they can't see where the play is coming from they can't fail it. e.g covered up with something. :thumb:

    you'll need the brake fluid changing as well, might as well let Abarth do it at same time :thumb:

    Only if you trust your dealer.

    I didn't in the slightest. Everytime I took it in they couldn't find anything. I had to tell them what was up with it just for them to find it. (or point it out to them)

     Also all emissions machine if updated will have the same cars/ data on them and if I remember correct it just comes under Abarth t jet.

    Change the brake fluid, why change it every service I have, plus I don't trust my Abarth dealer at the best of times, the brake to me would have to be changed if you was doing track days and hard driving

    Seems to me to be the totally blindingly obvious answer.

    If it fails then the dealer will know about it, I want  a outsider has I think I have a problem with my Suspension but the dealer say I don't, I have creaking sound on the back they said it was the rear seat so I took them out, still there over little dumps at slow speed
