Im thinking motor trader mot tester nextdoor to each other mmm something fishy( or is this just me being a bit too suspicious).

That should have been a failure or an advise at very least.With the new MOT certificates you will usually get an advise sheet.This will list the things that have been seen when doing the MOT but are not failures.

Not wishing to stir up anything but I suspect there may well be 'something fishy' involved!

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
