did you get done for noisy exhaust ? was it on showground road a few weeks ago ? did they direct you to go for inspection on the spot ? the trick is not to go if they ask you to .

tell them that you are in a hurry and make apointment to go some other time in the mean time you make sure your car will comply .

i was pulled over about a year ago and when they asked me to go around the corner for inspection i told them no i was in a hurry so they ask me to go another time and i fixed my exhaust ( put a flange with a few 15mm holes where the cat joins the the rear pipe )it worked great but no power

Yeap!!! noisy exhaust!!! actually got done at harrys 2/3 months ago.... and yeap... it was an rbt, and they then asked me to go around the corner to an epa/rta setup up where both parties went over my car with a fine tooth comb :thumbsup: If i'd know i could just drive away saying i was in a hurry, i would have! :)

I did get defected the same time last year, but i ended up changing everything back cause it was too restrictive! and then got done again! :(

Anyways... now i'm faced with a court appearance! : at least the car is now legal!

Which court are they taking you to? When is it listed? What is the listing for? ie; mention, hearing, pleading only. Give us the full charges as they have written them.

I'm a Barrister's Clerk so I might be able to help.

pm me for my email address to send more details if you want Moanie.

Just make sure u've got everything planned. I've been to court a fair few times with my brother for car defects n stuff like that. If u go unprepared, they'll come down on u twice as hard. But if u go and show confidence - not too much - then u should be sweet as. They'll try n pull the wool over ur eyes becoz ur a girl....just show em that girls r not just pretty faces ;)

Sure were!!!! defected for air pod and exhaust sound level. I put everything back after the first defect, as it was REALLY restrictive! to the point where the car screamed at me if i revved past 3k... i didn't have the money to put in a better solution! and then i got done again! :

Defected for a second time... thats exactly what i mean! Both times was for air pod and exhaust being too loud!

Your friend must get defected by the cops... ie highway patrol or paddy wagon guys... i got defected - both times - by the rta and epa. The cops pull you over for a random breath test, then ask you to follow them to an rta/epa set up where they will proceed to defect you for anything that is defectable for you car! The first time i was given two infringement notices... the second time (cause it was the second offence) the epa took me to court!

I'm just saying, be careful! If the epa/rta defect you, don't get done by them again!

what happened with your mate? WHat defects? Does he have to go back to the epa for an inspection to get it cleared, or does he just fax something to them?
