That says only:
"for electronic stability control, safety restraint systems, anti-lock braking systems and tyre pressure monitoring systems are not permanently illuminated"

Doesn't say about rear lights /side lights so not sure

Can't fit the old ones back as was a bit fliddly
Wil have too wait and see

I'm guessing BMW won't fail it if they didn't have to as they want there cars to pass
Maybe I should put the originals in the boot just in case although they would charge to refit them and charge for Mot restest if it did fail on them

So annoying!

Sorry a good spot, looked at the official gov.uk site and no reference to the lamp out dash lights.

https://www.gov.uk/government/public...ions-and-order

Also, you do have MOT Protect included in your TLC and as you have used genuine parts that should be covered to pull you through the MOT.

Good point. I'd rather a straight pass no advisories or minors etc but I've been too lazy to sort out hopefully they will pass it and I can sort it in a few weeks. They have seen the car before with the Union Jack lights and didn't say anything but that was a service 6 weeks ago not MOT.

Fingers crossed!

It passed!

The bulb out warning on dash (but the lights actually work) came up as a Minor only on the MOT today at a mini dealer, they couldn't find the right wording for it so classed it as "reversing light in operative"

Will sort it out in a few weeks. Glad it passed
