yea make sure all your lights work and none are out or brighter/dimmer then the other, make sure your horn is working and make sure your window sprayer is working. Also i would just hide the gauges for now.

Just make sure that all the main things, lights indicators, tyres, brakes, no oil leaks, horn, windscreen wipres n sprays etc...

both times I have taken my vl's over, and they didn't check the spare.

Just depends on who you get on the day, and what type of mood they are in.

Don't know if its been suggested above... but a common thing they get commodores on is indicators not cancelling... although they passed my VS with only the left cancelling sometimes...

i bought a brand new set of 5 pursuities but little did i know that pursuit rims dont fit in the vl tyre well or probably any other car for that matter... so its kinda just in there with the strap tied around it... as far as how low it is... it should pass althgouh my cooler is hanging down there a bit... i also just got my park-neutral switch changed coz the ******* wouldnt start in park... im actually kinda glad that i gotta take it over the pits coz at least now i know that in the eyes of the law my car is safe and legal...

even if your car passes the pits the cops can still give ya a yellow as soon as you pull out of the place... never think you are safe!!

i will give you 20 bux if you can fit a proper 225 wide pursuit rim to fit in my tyre well...

I know cops can pull me over and give me a licky but all im saying is at least ill feel safe knowing it passed to their standards...
