I Hate State Inspections!!!!

Hi everyone,


I just wanted to share my experience of today with you.....

As every 2 years I have to bring my car in for state inspection.-and every 2 years the same shit!!!

I get to hear how many non-german-DOT-conform features my car has and how much easier it would be for them if Id be driving a european car (they dont have the right equipment for emission test for US cars ....there is obviously a difference,GOD knows what....)
and I end up spending the whole day with those inspection guys just to get that little plastic cap on the license tag which tells me I can drive this car for another 2 years.....

This year my underbody neons were subject No#1 on their list.
I had to remove all the neons and ended up breaking one!!!!

Im not going to reinstall them , enough is enough.......


About 81 Euros (~100$!!!) and a broken underbody neon kit later Im now finally at home again...

I think I dont have to explain my mood...just wanted to share my day with you....

Benny

Philly rawks!! Fortunately for me, my car is registered and insured in NJ where inspeciton is once every 2 years (4 years if your car is a 2001 or newer). I dont know the price but i dont think its much. Emissions can be rough but theres loopholes for just about everything else.

Yeah Ontario! We have a safety inspection requirement in order to change the vehicle ownership. And emissions every two years for vehicles 2-20 years old. License renewal sticker (no inspection) is annual for 75$. And, insurance is mandatory.

In most cases i've seen, the law is that you can not have the neons on while moving on state owned roads. Just having them mounted ususally isn't illegal.

No inspections here.
