I would also be wary of the engine,its not the best unit and your emission fails are typical of one with little or no oil,at below minimum when hot they(and the mini derivatives using the same unit)suffer oil degradation/starvation which affects the vvt unit and valve hydraulics leading to misfires/high co etc.no way of telling anything for certain from this end of a fail tho,it could be perfectly fine but get it checked soonest

Hi there,
I'd only really be worried about the emissions failures. All those other failures are I feel easily repairable in a day. As for the emissions failure items, they could be an easy repair such as a vac leak or misfire not due to compression. Which means it's completely plausible that it could be repaired in time for collection.They could however be signs of a worn engine or expensive internal damage which may be a tall order to rectify in 2 days.

It may be difficult but perhaps try and find out from the test station the suspicions on why it failed (tho it's not a testers job to deduce this).


Finally as much as I hate to say it their are people that bring our trade down. If you do receive the car with a fresh MOT I'd be tempted to take it for an emissions test to make sure no foul play has occurred.

Hey.

  • Offside Front Outer Drive shaft joint constant velocity boot split or insecure, no longer prevents the ingress of dirt (6.1.7 (g) (ii))
  • Exhaust hydrocarbon content after 2nd fast idle exceeds default limits (8.2.1.2 (b))

Monitor and repair if necessary (advisories):
