Emission/Exhaust Gas (Abgas) Test to go?

Modern cars are so clean thanks to onboard computer technology that the Swiss Government suggests test can be only every 4 years or even dropped.

Garages are not happy as another goldmine is closed...

Yeah, when my car is tested, all he does is print out the fault report from the vehicles engine management system. No faults = test passed.

And he charges me the standard fee for this service!
