To answer your 1st question, both.  If you don't have it re-inspected and pass within the timeline, they pull your insurance.  This ensures an even playing field for those wishing to fight these often bogus tickets. [/sarcasm]

DOT or SAE are acceptable standards as are certain e-code markings.

    Yeah you'll be fine. Every light on my car is E13, which is from a left hand drive country, so hopefully they are fine. Luckily my glass is all DOT for whatever reason.

      According to CMVSS 108.1, which you should have all read, headlights made for a right-hand-travel (aka LHD car) are ok.

        Yes which is what i told the officer that pulled me over but he was having none of it, has to be DOT or SAE he said. So i guess when i go there for re-inspection i'll have that regulation with me.

          Bringing this forum back from the dead im curious, when I had my Mr2 in there for inspection they said the suspension failed because the fat ass said it was to stiff... but it was after market suspension so its legal and wasnt modified, and I had over 4 inches of travel. He failed it because it was "to hard" to push down. Was he bull****ting me here?

            Depends what you meant by bull****ting.
            Yes, its a bull **** way of testing the suspension.
            What he says probably isn't bull**** to them, and will most likely have to get changed, although, it is bull****.
            If that makes sense :lol:

                         pushing down on the car isnt at all an acceptable way of testing your Suspension because not every human exerts the same about of effort being pushed onto the car, therefore how could they accurately determine resistance in the suspension when every worker is different? Mpi is a crock of ****

                              Is it possible to pass safety with an aftermarket steering wheel?

                                I'm pretty sure the answer is that you can definitely pass safety with an aftermarket steering wheel.

                                But if you originally had an airbag, the aftermarket one would also need an airbag (to pass safety).

                                  There is also a Minimum Steering Wheel Diameter. I believe that it is 370mm. I could be wrong but double check that.

                                  Also, you turn signals must auto cancel! Often the replacement of an aftermarket wheel will remove the clock spring. I think that's about it for issues along with the airbag, only if it came stock with one is it mandatory

                                    I checked all the MPI vehicle inspection handbooks and there isn't anything that says I need the stock wheel.
                                    So now I'm a bit confused as to what to do.
