    Which translates roughly as;

    POL-K: 190523-4-K / BAB / REK Ten tuned cars secured at rest area - experts confirm traffic insecurity and stop cars

    Cologne (ots)

    Addendum to the press release number 2 of 17 May

    The Cologne police have presented on Thursday night (16 May) at the rest area Frechen-South on the A4 seized cars of ten British (20 to 31 years) experts. On all ten tuned vehicles, the experts found deficiencies that lead to traffic insecurity. The Road Traffic Office ordered the immediate decommissioning. Thus, the cars in Germany may no longer be driven on public roads. Before the release of the vehicles, police will charge a security deposit of around 900 euros per car. The Road Traffic Office sends the registration plates and vehicle documents to the registration offices in England.

    The experts stated in their report, among others, the following defects in the cars of the brands BMW, Honda, Seat, VW and Mercedes:

    - "Radbefestigung 2nd Axis right poor, danger of
    Loss of the wheel - wheels in connection with air suspension no
    Freedom from the mudguard - Tires: No clearance
    sufficient with impairment of driving safety front and rear
    - Spring 1st and 2nd axis left and right distance to body parts
    insufficient - front wishbone inadmissible - brake hose
    frayed - service brake system: minimum braking not reached
    - Engine leaking - High oil loss - Transmission leaking - Oil loss
    with drip - exhaust system changed - reversing light without
    Function - Silencer missing - Windscreen with cracking -
    Windscreen glued in the field of view - sill extension
    improperly mounted - additional spring 2nd axis left and right
    damaged - assignment wheel / tire not allowed - air filter /
    Use: design not allowed - coupling rod 1st axis left and
    broken right - Airbags missing - Horn without function - ... "
    The British have to return their traffic-safe vehicles to England on a car carrier. (Js)

  7. You can't leave it like that.... Darren McCrae i lived through... but this has got me guessing :-D
     
  8. Many of the faults listed, Bay owners can relate to !
     
  9. It was a chap called wizard a friend of @Poptop2 i think.

    It got all a bit nasty with all kinds of threats including eating your first born kind of stuff but I don’t think anyone knew why it kicked off in the first place but it was something silly.
    He was kicked off TLB and no one was allowed to talk about it.

    He was a proper moron.

    Sort of bloke who could start an argument if he was the only person in the room.

    Careful what you say though; he'll get his Solis sulis solisiter lawyer on to you.
