Hello everyone. As I promised to let you all know what happened about my MOT and CAT problem, here it is. I bought the new Catalytic Converter from MX5BITZ, they were very efficient in getting it too me, and also checked with my registration that I had ordered the correct item. I took it to the garage who had failed it last time and let them know that I had found a CAT that I thought was the best I could get hold of and were they prepared to do a full diagnostic of the engine, fit it and then MOT it. “No trouble they said, bring it in at 9.00am in three days time and it will be done”. All went smoothly and it passed its test ok and to my surprise the whole exercise cost only £85.00.
The garage concerned is Auto Test 84A High Street, Northallerton, North Yorkshire. Phone no 01609 777151 In case there is anyone who is interested in having a good job done at very fair prices. This
is not a Rip Off merchant, they will tell you when there is anything that will need to be looked at in the future or before the next MOT. Not like a Main Dealership who would do the work and charge you even though it didn’t really needed doing at the time. I have had this happen to me in the past, never again. As far as I know they also did the warm up part of fitting the CAT.
