I booked my Exige in a local garage and just got a phone call saying they can’t do it be because of 2 reasons 

1. The car is too low to get onto the ramp

understandable

2. The MOT tester can’t get into and out of the car because his to fat

LOL

 

Book it in to Halfords. Seriously, our local are really good, they know they won’t get the work, like to get something interesting and have all the latest kit to do the job properly including vibration plates instead of crow bars. They even pulled some ARB mounts that were on their way out but had just gone through the end of warranty inspection by a main dealer. 

Thevtester did however say that he was glad it was an Evora.

Suppose it depends on the tester. Ours is a good experienced bloke who will go out of his way and Halfords provide him with the best and newest equipment. It’s the only place I’ve ever seen using vibroplates to check the suspension. I stand there and watch, always have.

It’s an MOT, not working on the cars.

I admit, it wasn’t something I’d have done off my own volition,  but they were the approved MOT suppliers for my old company car and to be honest they impressed me when I was forced to use them, so I’ve been happy to use them since. Credit where it’s due.
