Right i understand some Things too :
-You shouldn't be louder than X%
-You should pass Emission like stock
-You should only buy and drive quality Stuff that won't kill you and others on the street like some China **** could do
That would America also do well
-Upgrade your brakes,suspension and tyres if you go high Hp
But that's about it...the Rest is money making
K-Sport Coilovers for example are a couple hundrets more expensive here because of the tuv approval....we all know they're the same
You can't even make a pair of ******* expensive Volk Racing Wheels or Tein Coilovers street legal here without having the Connection or the needed amount of Money to go to a Tuning Shop.
Quality doesn't count it's been so since i'm in Cars (11 years )
On the other Side they legalise cheap Crap like TA Technix Coilovers (Raceland) .
The european Distributor of them takes some Money and make his **** legal............
It's the same with cheap Wheels ,which break permanently......Rotas and xxr's are bulletproof against some of them
Take some "Motorsport proofen" Parts (brakes,seats,steering wheels ,cage etc)which are really tested during hardest abuse over years in racing you won't get them legal if nothing from the above said occurs.
Even Saftey Stuff like a Rollbar for the Miata is a Problem ,because neither a Harddog or a Trlane has a Certification.
Next Thing is they're mounted on 2 Points where the stock saftey Harness is mounted......this is the biggest problem for them 2 SKREWS
They should personally do a Rollover WITHOUT a real rollbar first to get a impression of what it's like
"Style Bars" which will break your Neck in an Accident if you're unlucky are no Problem
I do it like this to get a registration (was already first registred in 1991) :
I do the Stuff Tüv wants :
Brakes ,Suspension,Motor ,Rust etc
I put in a 1.8 Miata Na Engine for Tüv that i have no stress and the Time of 2 Years to find a "normal and cheap "Aditor who makes the Engine street legal
The most important Thing is to make it registration capable no later than end of May .
Because in July i will take it to a big Camping Trip to the Alps,Croatia ,Bosnia and Montenegro
If someones interested :
First trough the Alps (not me in the Video) some might know this Road from TopGear "Drivers Heaven"
Search for "Swiss Passes " ,"klausenpass" ,"gavia" etc if you wont to see more
I was there last Year too it's a dream many houndrets of km curvy Roads freshly built with the best Asphalt you can imagine and very little Police
