GDA WRX Compliance

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

So my JDM GDA has landed in Adelaide under the personal import scheme, currently I am just waiting for it to clear the docks. I have the engineer organised to check out the car and prepare the report, and Regency have sent me the Statement of Requirements (see below). One question I have is as they haven't specifically said anything about side intrusion bars (ADR29) in the ADR's does this mean either it does not need to comply, or that they already know the car has them? As it is I have to remove the HID's from the JDM STi headlights and hope that it passes with halogens in the HID projectors. Anything else to look out for that anybody knows of, although I understand not many WRX's would of come through under the PIS, let alone MY01 GDA's.

 

Cheers all.

 

 

ADR's in the Statement of Requirements:

 

ADR 4/01 – Seat Belts (front outboard seating position)

ADR 4/01 – Seat Belts (rear outboard seating position)

ADR 4/01 – Seat Belts (rear inboard seat LAP BELT)

ADR 5/00 – Anchorages for Seat Belts and Child Restraints

ADR 22/00 – Head Restraints

ADR 1 – Reversing Lamps

ADR 13 – Installation of Lighting and Light signalling devices

For anybody who stumbles upon this thread at a later date and might be wondering the same:

ADR's in the Statement of Requirements:

 

ADR 4/01 – Seat Belts (front outboard seating position) - No change required

ADR 4/01 – Seat Belts (rear outboard seating position) - No change required

ADR 4/01 – Seat Belts (rear inboard seat LAP BELT) - No change required

ADR 5/00 – Anchorages for Seat Belts and Child Restraints - Holes drilled and plugged in the parcel shelf, no issues

ADR 22/00 – Head Restraints - No change required

ADR 1 – Reversing Lamps - No change required

ADR 6 – Direction Indicators - No change required

ADR 13 – Installation of Lighting and Light signalling devices - No change required

ADR 45 – Lighting and Light signalling devices not covered by ECE - No change required

ADR 46 – Headlamps - Factory HID's removed and replaced with Halogens, no issue

ADR 47 – Retroreflectors - No change required

ADR 48 – Devices for illumination of rear registration plate - No change required

ADR 49 – Front and Rear position lamps, Stop Lamps and End-outline markers - No change required

ADR 51 – Filament Lamps - No change required

ADR 52 – Rear Fog Lamps - N/A

ADR 11 – Internal Sun Visors - No change required

 

Also note that side intrusion bars are fitted, and that the car must still comply with the road rules for your state (ie. Defects and roadworthy). Car passed second time around, I missed the braided brake lines and it had a loose bolt. Other than that no issues, even passed through with all the Cusco braces top and bottom still on.

When I read your first post I thought something was a miss. Personal Imports only need to meet the minimum ADR's.

 

I have imported two personal imports, and never had an issue with HIDs, or mods to the cars. However, I suspect, SA to be a bit stricter.

 

Congratulations.
