stock or not, just like any LHD vehicle, aslong as its legal, and the components are within specs, your car will pass a safety inspection, nothing special about a RHD otherwise when doing a check. So find a place you prefer, and book an appt.
If a car is shows that a solid effort was made, and the car is reasonably well executed I can respect that. Even if it's not my cup of tea..
Not every place will treat you like a normal
I would also have to turn you down too for an alignment as your miata wouldnt make it up the driveon bay.. not because i dont want to but because your car is too low to drive it up, driving it up that ramp would be required to do a safety in my shop as well. So its not about it being RHD or JDM - you cant walk into a MPI broker location and have them refuse to renew your license just because your black, or white or yellow, male, female, etc etc unless you pose a threat to their personal safety via verbal or physical abuse, also shops cannot refuse to do a safety just because your car is JDM -
I used to take everything to Canadian Tire
A co-worker suggested Simcoe motors on Notre Dame when I was looking to get my S14 safetied
Oh god, why?
Did you try them? Are they cooperative?
The theory was that if anyone was going to overlook things, it would be them. I have never let them work on any of my vehicles, just look at them. And they were close to home and open in the evenings.
Back when I had my skyline, lots of people would tell me to go to CT on Kenaston because it was common knowledge they didn't look for dot lighting.
These days with the VIU, I'd rather know it's all legal, way bigger PITA + demerits (which is retarded) if you get caught with equipment that isn't to spec. But pre-VIU, if you could just get through safety, you were pretty well good to go.
Didn't go there , but one of the techs owns a rhd so while they won't overlook things they also won't bull**** you.
I just dealt with both my viu tickets in May in court. Went to the responsible drivers course because of them, got my license renewal a couple of weeks ago and wasn't hit with any demerits for either ticket.
They probably didn't process it yet then. My license took a hit this renewal date for a ticket 2 years ago due to being processed late. It's a way of stunting your progress up the scale.

The instructor at the responsible drivers course was pretty confident that I wouldn't take a hit on my license for these kinds of tickets....but I guess we will wait and see.
