what do you expect you live on the mid north coast they have 11ty bilion more highway patrol than anywhere else, i had a completly standard car and i was driving around port maquarie one night and they defected me for a failing door hinge because it wouldnt stay open, i was parked on a hill mind you and hardly any cars would have decent enough hinges to keep the door open where i had parked, wasnt officer ferris by any chance? who did it?

Jesus Christ, defected for a failing doorhinge! Though I'm currently in NSW, I come from Tasmania and have never heard of such ridiculous laws and abuse of power by police. I can see the reason behind some defects but most just sound like excuses for harrasment. Unless a cop has a degree in Engineering and a copy of relevant Design rules for the year the vehicle was built, who are they to defect anything but the most glaringly obvious faults? ie bald tyres, headlights etc. Technically, I assume then that the majority of XB/XC and pre injected falcons could be defected for having a non original carburettor (Holley etc) fitted, as it would not comply with pollution requirements relevant when the vehicle was built. Anyone had issues in this regard?

for starters they cannpt defect you for a non standard exhaust unless it does not meet adr compliance specs, if it is too loud and they did not have a db meter they cannot do you for it. sencond thing they cannot do you fo the ride hight of the car unless they measure from the lowest solid point of the car body kit is not considered solid by adr only metal is. ive battles the same thing in court and won

thats what people have to deal with when living on the mid north coast like kempsey port maquarie etc, i came from kempsey and i used to go out to port with mates on friday nites and saturdays but they would come through the macas car park and defect parked cars, kick us out of car parks even though we werent doing burnouts or making any noise, eventually we got sick of being defected and treated this way and started driving like f**k because we were getting tormented just as much when we didnt do anything wrong anyway, they are so stupid they got me for the door hinge and didnt even look at the windscreen which was cracked from left to right right across the whole length of it lol, i didnt have lowered springs or anything on that car aftermarket except for a cd player and 4 speakers, other than that i just had them red plastic cop magnets on lol

I've been running around with my exhaust out of the muffler for about a fortnight now (Need to wait until Thursday for more money so I can delete my rear muffler. I know it's stupid going around without a tailpipe, but I thought the job would of cost less, due to not having the equipment to do the job myself.), and I haven't been hassled at all... But I know now that I've said this that I'll get pulled over.

I'm also a P plater, and now Im a bit worried about being defected because of the fair amount of mods my car has on it, but I do live in Western Sydney... and nearly every P plater has a catback system installed...

But, good luck with getting everything checked out.

Cheers,
Russ.
