    Think the only way for you to put that on the road legally would to put it through a BIVA

    There’s loads of rods out there with pop registrations or triumph. Most of them have little or no original parts on there. In my opinion I don’t think the dvla have the time or can be bothered checking them......more likely to come unstuck when importing something

    Yes thats my thoughts.. so much has changed in the last few years.! and the more i read the less i really understand!
    Guess you bite the bullet or not, and i have always been a do it... lifes too short

    I like the non fendered look of the 34.. I did have one a few years back, but that had soooo many things just not right with it..
    You live and learn, and yes although i have imported a few myself, not sure i can be bothered with the hassle again?

    My 2018Gt Mustang is the dogs danglies...but i miss the hot rods meets and shows..and getting involved

    There ARE cars being caught but no one holds up there hands cos then they won't be able to palm their problem off on someone else.

    I'm at the start of a build and it didn't take much to convince me to go BIVA. If you spend money to build a car that's not up to regs, sooner or later you'll get pulled up and have the reg taken away. Then you've got to rebuild to BIVA, or sell it on.... Bear in mind that most changes should be notified to dvla (engine change) and at that point you could well get called for an inspection. All of us make choices about which laws we take seriously- driving at 40 in a 30, but for me the risk of building an expensive non-compliant rod is worth the risk. However, if it's cheap, buy it, take it apart and fix the non compliant bits.
