MFK - MOT- TUV car test

In Switzerland, once a car is five years old it registers some flag in the Swiss traffic authorities computer that randomly fires out a date when you need to turn up for your test.

I had mine this week and am might pissed. I drive a Mercedes and as it is this time of the year changed to winter tyres. This means, in my case, having two sets of wheels and tyres and not just two sets of tyres. I had them swapped and drove in to have the car tested. It failed and it was such a serious failure that I had to go back in January for a retest something which generally happens with those cars that deserve it. So what was the reason for failing.

I did not have the original wheels on and the ones I had were not original Mercedes therefore they need to be stamped in a little book to say that Mercedes accept them as good enough.

I am totally blown away. As I said to the guy what would have happened if I had not changed to winter tyres - you would have passed!!!!!!!!

Sympathy much appreciated

Thanks

Richard
PS I will now write something in the tips and tricks section!
