decided im taking my car over to the pits to try and get the sticker of it.. had a look oon the DPI website and it doesnt give much details of what needs to be done for the car to be passed (i expect everything).

so could people with experience give me some tips or what not?? anything? what centre i should go to?

well obviously everything on the list will need to be fixed, other than that basically everything needs to be working and at least appear to be in good condition. Make sure all your lights/indicators/wipers/horn all work. Seatbelts all working and not frayed, no cracks in windows, no major rust, no visible oil leaks, no ripped seats, I think that should do it. anyhting else they will give you a list anyway and you can go get that fixed and bring it back over pits again.

You've got to book appointments now man, so just call the pits line on 1300782713.

Apart from the obvious stuff that can be picked up common things to be picked up on include number plate lights not working, suspension bush/ball joints, exhaust leaks (they will not tolerate any exhaust leaks unless you have the best tits in the world), windows need to be able to wind up and down and make sure it drives straight.

And rip your yellow sticker off if they put it on a hectic angle.

Warwick is good and I take my cars there but I hear Welshpool is the best

yeah i heard about cops putting them on angles and upside down just so they get a hard time at the pits.

could you get away with this combo?

stock extractors -> stock cat -> 2.5 inch exhaust with only one muffler?

fcuk, rear windows dont go up or down!

You'll fail on the rear windows then, put manual regs in to get it over the pit. Not sure about the exhaust, depends how switched on they are, I've failed over tiny exhaust leaks before

Your best bet is to fix as much shit as you can, without the yellow sticker on the window, take it over. They'll give you a list and you'll have to return (only costs $50 second time) and if you're a nice enough bloke to them they'll help you out.

Be prepared to either pull the turbo kit off, or do a IM240 emissions test which is VERY expensive

This horseshit has left me reconsidering if I'll bother getting the Sprint running with the 347w
