It's green? Was this the one that was invented on BlackAdder?

Good price! Anyone used this brand before?


Good price. Heat given

Redex MOT Emissions Reducer Diesel 400ml - £5 @ Tesco
Posted 11th JunPosted 11th Jun
Good price for this. Using Redex Pre-Mot before the test will help to reduce emissions so can help you pass your Mot. It also helps improve the life of your engine

Same here, my MOT tester always struggled to get my diesel transit to pass, even though I always did the "Italian tune-up" on the way to the garage. This stuff sorted it.


Is this how VW made their diesels appear to be compliant? Given emissions are responsible for tens of thousands of deaths every year it seems short-sighted to just use it to pass a test...


Works for me too, I've not failed on emissions in 3 years of using this, but failed almost every year of the previous 4 or 5


same here.


This did the trick for me and got my car through the MOT after it failed on emissions

Buy the cheapest supermarket fuel, and chuck this in, and voila premium fuel...


I've seen a few threads about Redex with, bickering, shall we say, suggesting that it's snake oil. No idea, personally XD


The boyfriends not always right. Voted hot to match the weather 🥵

MrWhit Or this from Car Parts 4 Less for anyone without prime - £16.66...Free delivery over £15 and 4% Quidco


I feel that you could benefit from adding in a decontamination step (maybe on alternate washes) with an iron fallout product (just prior to using this contact wash).


Perhaps do a deep clean and decontamination (fallout remover and clay) of the car when you get it, then polish and then sealant/wax/ceramic or graphine coating. There are a lot of good channels on YouTube such as forensic detailing to get some good information.


Yes, don't do a prewash (the snow foam won't work so good), and finish with wax.


If I do prewash, snow foam, this, then a basic polish - am I missing anything obviously off from this? Just talking about a regular monthly wash rather than a deep clean.

Use Autoglym Magma, Best for iron particles stuck on wheels! About £9 from halfords. I used it on a set of 20+ year old wheels and they look nearly brand new (highfive)


Using the link it says £8.02, Prime, for me


how do you find that, ive used autosmart products and they are a little harsh, well they are if the wind goes that way and you get a throat full. my wheels are protected but i do have quite alot of brake dust


That I would pay good money for.


Possibly, but more likely to be iron fallout from brake pads. Look at Bilt Hamber Auto Wheel Cleaner. It’s very effective and gets awards for good reason.

I recently (21 days ago) had my Renault Clio 4 MOT tested by Formula 1. Normally they wizz through but as the area manager was in with regional manager they went through it with fine tooth comb. Was the very first time I've ever seen a tester wash the windscreen to look for chips and damage. Even checked the filler cap. Now I was very happy that A, it passed with 2 advisories and B, they were thorough with it. Ppl forget it's not just their own safety but other road users too. IMO there are far too many people who just want a years ticket and that's it. Wake up people. They will tell you if there is work that need attention but that doesn't mean you have to get them to do it. Take it to another garage and ask for them to assess and give you their opinion. I've done it all motoring life. Yes some places like halfrauds among others will try and pull your pants down and not lube up before delivering you the shocking figures they want but they are not all like it. My 1 piece of advice is take it to the same garage and build a good rapport with them. They will in turn show you respect and not pull your pants down.


Yes the mots there for a reason and by sounds of it you take good care of your car so nothing to be worried about


It looks like £5 of the full MOT price of £54.85 looking at the deal,so confusing...


I take good care of my car and have high qualifications in HGV or LGV (which ever) mechanics. I took my car for an air con refresh but when I arrived they told me they had no air con gas. I then had to rebook but mentioned I was booked in for a MOT elsewhere and would have to work around that. As a "gesture of good will" for wasting my time etc.. they carried out a MOT on my car at the same time as the aircon for an additional £20. I was watching closely and the tester went over and beyond to try and find a fault to recoup their money.


I went not long ago and had a really good experience. More for people who actually take good care of their car and are unlikely to need big repairs.
