Hi all,
Could anyone throw light on what the opacity limit for mot purposes are on my 2.2 cdti 163bhp exclusive. There's no limit on vin plate so I assume its 1.5 as per gov.uk but according to my local vx dealer it is now 0.5
Thanks andy

1. First used before July 2008: Non-turbo: 2.5m-1 or plate value if lower
Turbo: 3.0m-1 or plate value if lower

2. First used on or after 1 July 2008: All diesels:1.5m-1 or plate value if lower

3. First used on or after 1 January 2014: All diesels: 0.7m-1 or plate value if lower

Count yourself lucky if you don't have a value stamped on your plate, your limit will be as Item 3. My Antara has .3m stamped on it so not much to play with.

Other emissions as stamped on the V5 for 2015 Antara
Sect V Exhaust Emissions:
V1: CO (g/km or g/kWh) 0.163
V2: HC (g/km or g/kWh) - - -
V3: NOx (g/km or g/kWh) 0.146
V4: HC + NOx (g/km) 0.170
V1: Particulates (g/km or g/kWh) 0.50
