Re: Oh No!!!!

Yeah they all sound like typical things they'll get ya on. I know, it sucks, but not much you can do bout it apart from not driving your car lol ... It's usually just a matter of being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and lets face it, pumpin your stereo is a sure way to attract a cops attention.

Personally I've gotten over that whole scene and pretty much don't take my car out friday or saturday nights. It's a shame I know, but we kinda just gotta accept the risk...

never heard of being done for one headlight brighter than the other - surely they can only defect you on items that would fail a roadworthy, and to pass a roadworthy the lenses have to be intact and clear (ie not cloudy or full of crap)

whats the go with the drivers seat? is it standard? how did he come to the conclusion it was loose?

poor wheel alignment is also not defectable - though if your tyres are worn to the wear bars anywhere along the usable tread then the actual tyres are no longer roadworthy, but then you can only get done for the tyres, not the wheel alignment.

i dont know about the rear speakers, 8" in a parce shelf are pretty damn big.

what you might have to do there is get a shop to cut you up a piece of steel that matches the rear parcel shelf and get them to weld them togather, either on top of or below the original, and then you would need an engineers report stating that the car is structurally sound. (though personally i think thats a bullshit defect anyway)

just be thankfull you didnt get done for your ride height, tacho or JMM dev 5! if they did an EPA test you would have been FUBAR i reckon...

i have been done for ride height and exhaust to loud before, both fair calls though, at 87mm and 103db respectively :s6:

Re: Oh No!!!!

Yer man id just fix the stuff and take it down the cop shop or RTA. Maybe ask them when u are there what the go is. I dont think they could give you a defect notice for just one of those things but 3 minor defects and they can canary you.
Shitloads of early commies have tho one light brighter than the other problem. My mates used to get pulled up for it all the time.
Drivers seat not secure? Is it or not? if it aint then its fair enough!
Wheel alignment. Youd think they couldnt tell but they check the wear on your tyres and if its uneven then they will tell u that u need an alignment. I could be just because u do alot of left turns or take round abouts fast ect!
As for the speakers, Youd think that as long as the parcel shelf isnt damaged and the speakers are held in place securly they couldnt do a thing! Unless its the weight thats an issue. Still i dont see a problem :( What about the people with 12" subs on the parcell shelf?
Rollin is right, they probly could have got u for alot more. No ones car is perfect and if they wanted they could probly put all of us off the road for minor things!

Re: Oh No!!!!

never had a yellow syicker and wont start now either:


the seat,headlight,speakers,sound like silly things,you'd only have to drive around and look at a newer car with one low n one high beam working yet they got you for it,also speakers go to rice factor cars and look at their setups now if that safety/structured etc im buggered if i know.

*screams* NAZI COPS*Grrrr*

Re: Oh No!!!!

lol if they did an epa test i would pass as my exaust is jmm (redback) and falls in at around 87db. The same can't be said about my old exaust lol a straight pipe running from the stock headers back to a single hot dog and thats it!!! lol all 122db of it. The thing used to throw fire out the back when blipping the throttle at high revs lololol and instead of a turbo's schhhh noise i had the unmistakable grrrr crackle crackle pop pop noise ahh those were the days!!!

Re: Oh No!!!!

by EPA i meant an emissions test - i dont think a JMM kit will pass, though if anyone here has a dev 5 and been tested and passed i will have no problem being proved wrong.

so whats the go with the drivers seat?
