The other night; DEFECT

hey, the other night i was @ my girlfriends house and had to go pick up my brother. After picking up my brother we headed home. I had just put blue driving lights on the day b4 and wired them up to my headlights, so they come on 2gether. Neway, i was heading home and a coppa started followin me, he pulled me over and said their illegal and shit like that. Then after he went over my car and i had bould tyres on the back. he defected my car for bould tyres, blue driving lights, sports steering wheel ( your not alloowed 2 have them at all unless your car was build b4 May 1971 !!!! ) and my number plates ( there not reflctive ones ). I have 72 hours 2 drive the car...

has this happened 2 ne1?

-Master-

p.s- this was in my 1974 Mazda 929 sedan that looks original as they come @ 8:40pm and i was there 4 an hour...

well if you are going to put blue driving lights on you have to expect every cops that sees you will pull you over, so youd wanna make sure its completely roadworthy.

Not allowed a sports steering wheel? No way...

That is so absurd I wouldn't know where to begin criticising it.

its the first time ive ever heard of someone being busted for it.
Replacement steering wheels fitted to vehicles manufactured after 1970 must not be replaced with any steering wheel which would cause the vehicle not to comply with the Standards for Registration, e.g. energy absorption requirements for steering columns.

Re: .

From what I've been told the only way a sports steering wheel can be illegal is if its smaller in diameter than the original one

Re: .

haha that's funny I've gotta say.

I haven't installed my new wheel yet, and I understand it is a bit smaller than the original. But if an EB GT steering wheel isn't good enough for them, they can get f----.
