    Hi there,

    Lets hope this does not come into the UK people, it would be awful.

    Millions of modified and classic cars could be banned from the roads as meddling European Union try to shake-up MOT rules | Mail Online

    What do you think?

    Really don't think it will happen. The amount of complaints etc that have been made. As has been mentioned on here it would destroy industries! What about the world of classic cars? Most are modified to make them safer. Also there's talk of how cost full it would be compile a database of the condition (what extras) cars were registered in. Let's hope it doesn't happen!

    The proposal as it stands may well be a bit over the top and may get watered down, but German tuning companies manage to survive and prosper and they had this situation for many years. Probably this is why German tuning firms are so good. The thing is that these companies have to get the products and the services they offer approved by the TUV for the model of car. Once this is done anyone can buying the items and fit them to their own car or have the company carry out an approved upgrades without any further problems. What is does stop is 'cowboys' carrying out things to cars that should not be done on the grounds of safety or the environment.

    Germany cars are, I think, subject to a TUV test every two years, but if the car is stopped by the police or involved in an accident and found to have items on the car that are not TUV approved they car be prosecuted.

    Classic cars would probably be exempt because they have never seen subject to the Type Approval process. Again there are losts of classic cars in Germany and there manage to cope with the situation.
