    Yup, good for another year. Found a shop here in NC that was pretty laxed. Did not even roll up my front windows to inspect my tint, kind of why I rolled in w/windows down LOL... No look under truck to discover missing Cats:D Hell, I think all they did was check OBD for codes and maybe lights and stuff.

    I will definately keep doing business w/these guys so as a regular, I will definately get away with my soon to purchase DT Long Tubes.

    Oh and just so all know, CAI, Headers, URD Y-pipe = OBD II clear for emissions in NC State...:cool:

    Nice cover up. I used to have to hide everything when I lived in VA, their inspections are tough. More then one time I come back to the shop to find my PIAA's lying in the front seat and a rejection sticker for other odds and ends they didnt deem suitable.

    In all honesty I think some sort of inspection is a good thing, we dont have it in TN where i live now but there are some shit boxes on the road.

    oh believe me, the two times that happened we had words and those two different shops were never used again by me. The shop both times said the reason the lights were removed is because they did not say DOT approved on them anywhere.

    We don't have inspections here in Florida and it's unbelievable what you see going down the road. I was behind a big brown beat to crap Cadillac a while ago, her front left wheel was cambered out at LEAST a foot! How she turned corners is beyond me. And you know if the front end looks like that the brakes haven't been touched in years. Kinda scary sharing the same road with duct-tape cars.

    LOL yup and a lotta Buicks too. The old folks tend to drive the new ones. It's the 80s models the youngins buy for 250 bucks and drive until the wheels fall off.

    But they put LED windshield wiper squirters on them first!

    haha funny you say the youngans get the 80's model ones. My ex-gf drove an 88 brogham edition motor boat. that thing was SWEET!! It was almost exactly the same length as my DC LB and floated down the road like a yacht. sadly there was no led washer squirters but there was a ducktaped side view mirror.

    Luckily, all the POS cars were left to drown during Katrina. Most people around here have decent cars now. We have inspections but they only do a quick visual inspection.
