Yea it would be a shame to get in shit for bit of a banter... Any way this emission stuff does my head in so I think I'll give my favourite agency a phone call Monday see what they'll tell me... I've spoke with couple of my mates today (testers too) and they said that if they can't find info about import in emissions database they'd just test it as non cat. Oh and car only need cat if it has to pass cat emission test so foe example 7 seaters till 2002 don't need cat... (all zafiras petrol etc only if it's 7 seater lol)

ok i think I've found it lol!

https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/346222/emissions_17th_edition.pdf

As indicated above, an extended emissions test will be applied where the limits are
not met under the basic emissions test and where the vehicle has been identified as
needing to meet the “catalyst” test requirements. These will include petrol-fuelled
cars fitted with advanced emissions control systems (e.g. vehicles with catalytic
converters) first used on or after 1 August 1995, (2) petrol fuelled cars first used on or
after 1 August 1992 which are listed in the Annex to this booklet and large passenger
cars and light goods vehicles first used on or after 1 August 1994 and listed in the
Annex to this booklet

(2) Passenger cars first used before 1 August 1995 and not mentioned in the Annex to this publication are tested
to non-catalyst standards.

Pulsar do not need cat emission....
Sorry for making mess in this thread

No thats good information there Gostek great to hear if from the horses mouth so to say. I guess as you said some MOT testers dont always check up on this and to be safe they just fail it ir something
