Does the SES light come on when it's time for an inspection?

Mine came on last night, the car seems ok, maybe a little down on power (perhaps because it was 1am and I was dead tired).

It's been running like a champ lately, but due for Inspection II very soon, and I'm wondering if this is just a reminder for Inspection II or something else.

no, this is due to something causing an emissions fault. If you do a search on this board, you'll find the many reasons it can come on on our cars! (simple as a loose gas cap, or complex as a vanos unit). Not uncommon, but also not related to an inspection 2, directly at least. when the light comes on, fault codes will be stored for your dealer to see what went wrong. It may go out on it's own if the fault is intermittent.
