    Its just the sad fact that Manitoba sucks for modified cars now and anything from JDM land sadly... Is what it is, and we basically have to do out best to try and stay within the rules they set out so we dotn get hassled. If your stuff not DOT or legal, simple fact is, change it. Less hassle and headache down the road.
    I have a Fairlady Z32, and im gonna be switching a mjority of stuff over to USDM 300zx equipment so when I get pulled over and they inspect... They've just wasted their time on a compliant vehicle. And then for the future aswell.


    its making everything pointless to tune and stand out anymore, im sorry cops (not really). strive to be different, slam, wheels, rims, camber, engine, whatever describes you NOT TO CONFORM .

    **** the police/viu. when i lived on boyd and mcgregor and heard gunshots go through my house at 2am and called the cops. they never came. in 4 years.  so i owe them nothing.
    if i want slicks on my vr4 then im putting em on if i want to. im not a idiot and aint driving in the rain or **** all. if i want 19"s and slamed with less rubber then a condom then i will.

    some peoples rides describe who they are, for some people thats all they have left.

    and yes i understand some safety issues. but half of them are stupid as **** and serve no purpose.

    example -400$ for my 92 preludes headlights (dot approved) not turning on AUTOMATICALLY with my ignition switch.

      Agreed^ It just sucks now to do exactly that, stand out among the crowd. Be an individual and do something you enjoy doing.Guess theyd rather us all be gangster wannabe slingin dope and stabbing people downtown rather than chilling in parking lots and talking about cars.
      Last time I checked, the cruise and car culture in Winnipeg was known by many people across Canada and the USA as the place to be.. Now its complete ****.

        yep,,,, smh,,,,

        half of them have a scarface ambission to own a ferrari one day, not knowing with the right mods a mr2 or supra 300zx or any import could easily be modded with 1/10th the $ of a ferrari to be faster and handle better, but who cares right, just a couple throats that kid will have to cut to make it thats all.  (so they assume)

        i remember high school when it was who had the sickest mods on there whip, now its who can sell the biggest bag of coke or weed, lovely.... its more illegal to mod a car then sell drugs baha

              When I was in school, the car mods were only between me and a few select friends. Everybody else was how many seconds it took to rocket a beer or how big of a hoot you could take.

                    So, what if your car has no north american counter part? No DOT headlights/tail lights/markers were never made for my car. But, under the CMVSS certain e-code lights are legal, but no cop ever seems to recognize this. And, no law or regulation i can find says anything about dot regulations for anything other than headlights, no mention is made of tail lights or corner lights. I got pulled over last night here in winnipeg and they say i need to change all my lights out, but all of my lights are e-code (E13) which is luxembourg, a left hand drive country and recognized by CMVSS standard 108.1, and ECE regulation No. 8. Any help with this guys? thanks, ryan.

                        Kind of like R32 skyline owners.... =P

                        You'll basically have to make a similar sized headlight fit to pass the inspection.  You're going to have a hell of a time fighting them over regulations.

                          I was told that E13 is no good....I could be wrong. I know E4 is acceptable.

                          Like Simon said it's like owning a skyline, you find lights that fit fairly close and fabricate your own brackets.

                          I went through it all with my R32, accord lights, cutting out the stock tails siliconing trailer lenses.

                          the more important question: You said they told you you are gonna have to change all your lights... did they give you a ticket to back that statement up or did they just simply tell you?

                            I have a ticket that says the lenses on both head lights and tail lights are not approved. The actual inpection paper that i need to bring back to them with it all fixed says "-lit marker or tail lights. - license plate light. - Horn. - Tail light and head light lenses not approved (DOT or SAE)

                              If you luck out on who you get for your re inspection, you only have to fix what's on the ticket.

                              If you get Elmer, or you have to go into mpi's vehicle inspection unit they will go over your entire car.

                                    How would he make money off these RHD tickets, and what is he doing that makes him crooked?

                                    He's not a good guy, and a huge douchebag from what I've heard, but I've never heard anything to suggest the above.

                                      Is there a master list somewhere that specifies which E-code countries are accepted in lieu of DOT/SAE?  You would think that any LHD country, or markings indicating the housing can be used for LHD (some have arrows as they can simply be aimed for either RHD or LHD) should be accepted.

                                        I have no proof to back it up, and for all i know i could be completely wrong, but from what ive read on heights he makes money off getting paid time in court to fight bogus tickets. Who knows though.
                                        As for the E-Code, Its ECE regulation No. 8, which is recognized by CMVSS 108.1. Basically states that any lights with the "E" followed by a number, encircled, being from a left hand drive country, should be recognized as a suitable replacement for DOT. We'll see what the inspection guys think about it.

                                            That is no different than any other cop, it's part of their job, and says nothing about the character of the officer getting paid OT to appear in court.  It's a flaw in the system perhaps, but not of the individual officer.  Certainly not grounds for calling someone "crooked".

                                                That being said from my 4 meetings with him, he's an unpleasent person.

                                                Not knowledageable enough to be performing roadside inspections, very rude, doesn't litlsten, and makes assumptions rather then getting down on his knees and checking things out.

                                                He's also a liar, he told me straight to my face that my car had passed and took my papers to submit. When I sold the car it magically had not passed.

                                                  So what exactly happens if you are pulled over and have non-compliant parts? Are you given a ticket with fees/demerits or are you given a deadline to have it fixed?

                                                  And what exactly is the law on lighting? My headlights and corner lights are DOT but my amber turn signals are only stamped SAE.
