What does everyone think of this?

It's pathetic in my opinion... Would also be impossible to enforce and cost the industry millions, garages & workshops would lose business and it's telling the public what they can and can't do. Ludicrous!

But like I say I can't see it happening.

Can you honestly see the Greeks, Italians,Spanish,etc etc taking any notice of this? They dont even bother with seat belts or motorcycle helmets (although its the law). But I expect it will be heavily enforced in the good old UK though. But wait a minute the well off with their expensive classic Sunday cars will be heavily hit as most of the spares arnt available anymore they have to buy NON STANDARD parts. Last year on Crete we saw a wrecked car being used as every day transport, nobody took a blind bit of notice not even the cops!

It's crazy isn't it, America is the same. So long as there's 4 wheels and a steering wheel they don't care! Yet over here its a completely different story

what about Classic Cars and those cars which need to be adapted for use, I really can't see this happening, Even wipers that arent standard (glancing at the article briefly)

I read this thread.
Less than 24 hours after I purchased a stainless piper duplex exhaust system.
Suppose I could use it to replace the PVC spouting on the side of the house, such a shame as it would have sound somthing like this:

Its the Socialist way, to take control of every bit of ones life. Unfortunately they have so much power in Brussels, and thats why they want the EU to be one single entity, controlled by one government, with one currency and eventually one religion.

Drives me nuts.;

Well.. On the plus side it would make my job a bit quicker, no people shouting at me when they mod their cars and don't tell us.
