And this is why you have an MOT tester who is also a personal friend.

It's been discussed on here before. They've already tightened the MOT regulations at the start of this year to include modifications and deviations from original intent of vehicle. There are written exceptions and, as a lot of things, it's down to the testers discretion. I fortunately have a very kind MOT tester.
If they were to implement these new regulations then it would cost the government billions a year in revenue from VAT, import taxes and fuel duty. Not to mention the losses of road fund license when 10% of the cars fail to meet the new requirements.

It’s all down to an EU proposal to change the definition of the roadworthiness test so that “components of the vehicle must comply with characteristics at the time of first registration"
Surely if it was imported modified then it was first registered with those characteristics? If thats the exact wording i'd imagine not toooo much to worry about for imports...

That said as above can't see it happening myself

how about millions lost by companies specialising in modified parts and sound systems as that article seems to imply they can fail you on!

I can understand tightening up some things tho but if they just blanket changed the lot they'd do FAR more harm than good to the economy. Just think how much crap halfords alone would have to suddenly take off the shelves... ooh cant fit head unit or speakers or a tom tom or alloy wheels they love selling...

I heard about this off a mate few months ago my worry is criminals, if you think about, theres a lot of young lads and girls out there who go out causing trouble vandalising property and what not, now when they get their car they stop doing that, they meet up in car parks and chill with mates an it keeps them from causing trouble, now say you take their 'modified' car off them whats gonna happen, are they gonna be happy... no .... an what happens when lots of people in this country are unhappy with the government oh yes riots an buildings broken into an on fire ;) this will end well

Still you never know it may happen, you know what this country is like if is it unhappy lol. my other question is what about kit cars? because a kit car is a completely custom made car that has to go through all sva checks will they still be allowed on the road?

What about Police cars? They are modified so they would technically all fail....lol

On a serious note though this pops up nearly every year and its EU for a start and it will never ever happen, changing from normal wheels to alloys is a modification, this will never happen there is too much money/tax involved in this for a start.

And what abou the poor pope and his custom modified mobile?

Then where will we be? Religious persecution on the basis of mechanically propelled vehicles?? It'll just push us all back to the dark ages.....

I blame the romans
