Posted 30 March 2012 - 09:28 PM
after being defected last week and being told that my pod wasnt enclosed as it should be, i cbf digging into the depths of my garage for it (plus im pretty sure its been thrown out) i decided to grab a hi-octane one, stripped the sticker off it, painted it satin black and along with my black fmic piping it actually looks pretty neat and stealthy.
so yea, im sure with the vague defect rules these days which pretty much gives the boys in blue the right to defect anything that isnt factory, i was just wondering if anybody has actually been defected for this?

That being said, it depends on who's looking at your car, where you are, and what your attitude is.

U r only allowed one intake mod. If you ever get pulle over the first thing the copper will check is this, as it is an easy sticker and and easy fine.
That's for Vic btw.

I got 'red stickered' defected in my old 180 in the city once about 6 years ago...Just did my strawberry face conversion and wanted to show it off.. All the defects were for stupid little things too..
One of the defects was having a TEAR in my driver seat.
Yep.. a TEAR!!! I shit you not.. It was about 2cm in length.. I asked the officer why it was a defect. His reply was "it's a defect because a spring may stick out of the seat while you're driving, it may cause harm to you. You could possibly lose control of your vehicle causing harm or death to others".... I swear my face jaw just dropped in utter shock as to how much bullshit this cop was pulling out of his ass.. Did i mention that the defect carried out 3 points?
I know alot of you may be assuming if I was being a dick towards the cop.. and the answer is no.. I was literally on my best behaviour.
So I took photos of the damn "defective" seat. Took my case to court.. The judge literally laughed his head off.. He had it dropped from my drivers license.

However, I don't think 99% of cops would care as long as its enclosed in a black box, they probably won't even know what they're looking at.
