All you need is reg and make, so if you see something on ebay. It's a great way to see a history of the car.

MOT just before I bought the car:

Nearside Front brake disc worn, pitted or scored, but not seriously weakened
Offside Front brake disc worn, pitted or scored, but not seriously weakened

This years, no mention of discs:

exhaust backbox skin badly corroded
nsr suspension bump stop adrift

Obviously a different tester, so the results will never be perfect.

My old Mazdaspeed.
So it had a minor leak of exhaust gases in 2006. I bought it 2009 and I could hear when buying that there was a leak somewhere in header area, but could not see or locate it. Said about it to the seller, who of course had not said anything, he knew about it and I could see from face expression that he was lying. Got home and found that collector of 2&3 cylinders was leaking after the joint and had been fixed with aluminium tape and pipe clamp. Still it work'd, I could hit rev limiter on 5th in autobahn.

This lets us play the fun game of searching on eBay for cars which "flew through MOT first time" or have "no advisories" and asking the seller awkward questions. Few examples...

Offside Obligatory mirror damaged, but not seriously affecting the rear view (8.1.2a)

I think it's great that you guys have this system. In the US many states don't even have a safety inspection. For that matter, the ones that do are sometimes just a joke.

The freaking garage hasn't even phoned me yet and they've tested it already, damn, they were fast, they said they'd do it on Saturday, and, looks like they did, would have been nice if they'd have told me... Now I know what I'm up against on Monday now as far as getting the MOT (because I assume they're going to phone me on Monday to tell me that they've tested it on Saturday and that it's failed).

- - - Updated - - -

I bought this car February 16th 2016, so, anything before 2016, not my problem...
However, I always knew this car was going to fail it's MOT (and that is my problem) but it's why it's in there getting serviced and MOT'd - Went in first thing Saturday morning.
