In my opinion this scandal is becoming so big it could ruin VW.

Being as the emissions fiddle doesn't affect the car in any way I don't see any cause for concern and certainly wouldn't be taking part in any recall exercise.
All the fiddle does is give good emissions results when it thinks it is being tested.
Unless you are a member of Greenpeace the emissions isn't likely to be a major factor when choosing a car.

The people who were conned had paid more for their cars because VW claimed they had lower emissions, I doubt they are still charging the premium or that the latest cars carry the same software.

I no longer drive, so am not up to date, but I understood emissions were now tested for in the MOT. Presumably there will be modifications to the test to ensure that fiddles like this are caught out, so it may affect you Volty

Sorry Mike I have to say that I have known Volty for over Forty years and never known him too have trouble with his emissions.
Not often anyway.[Thinking]

I think he probably designed the ones that VW use Mike.

It's simply that I never get my engine running for long enough to be tested.

As to the MOT test for emissions, it's the way they are done that triggers the software. Exact fixed RPMs for longer than normal duration. The best way would be to emulate driving conditions, perhaps doing the emissions test while testing the brakes on the rolling road.

You should have said so SB, it would have made you sound clever.
