Re: Legal limit for sun strip ??

Don's pretty much right,the strip mustn't come down more than 10mm across the swept area of the wiperblade,if it does then it'll fail the MOT.I'm not sure if it's a legal thing though and how you stand with the Police as they use slightly different rules sometimes.

I'd say a lot of testers would let a strip go as long as it's not excessively low,but that is down their personal discretion and really anything more than 10mm is a failure.

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