In fairness the mods should be reported to your insurance, in which case 9 times out of 10 you will need an engineers report. So it means more lads might declare their modifications which would lead to less technically uninsured drivers.

I passed my nct at the end of September.
Nothing will be said if the work has been done right with the correct parts.

There's also lads who buy Recaro's, and cut and weld the rails to fit. I never got my head around the idea...

So a snap on is grand in ep82 and a e10 as they don't have airbag and Levin seats are grand in the same?

I have had clarification on this recently.

Hydraulic handbrakes are not allowed as they have no ratchet mechanism. They can be left in the car as long as they aren't functional at the time of test.

Aftermarket seats are a big one even if they are e marked fia approved in date recaros and rails it doesn't matter unless they are factory forget it.

Steering wheels are a big one too but ONLY if the car came fitted with an airbag from factory. If the car originally never had an airbag you can use a steering wheel of your choice. That needed clarifying as it was originally thought if it was any modified wheel.

Coilovers aren't a reason for failure or lowering springs as long as they are not so stupidly low that it makes the car unsafe.

Strutbraces and other things like plug leads and all that carry on don't require a report as does anything cosmetic they don't matter.

Brake conversions are however in the loop now an OEM swap a tester isn't going to know. If your car has wilwoods or a massive brembo conversion they will fail this as a tester is unable to ascertain if the master cylinder has been upgraded with it to support them.

Internal engine mods aren't an issue

The exhaust is an issue simply as it will not pass the DB limit.

as long as the brakes aren't obvious they wont know

Lca's and polys wont matter the same with camber arms

you will have to get standard seats

sort out the wheels put a standard set on

gearstick extension or lip kit makes no odds

coilovers will make no odds as long as the springs aren't loose when its jacked up

Your going to have to put on a standard wheel. SNAP OFF won't be accepted or the aftermarket wheel as all SiR's and Type R's had them with the exception of the race base.

What if I used another steering wheel from another car? It still has the same function, but its aesthetically different.

Fine as in putting a yaris wheel in a celica or the likes? As long as its a manufacturers wheel and the airbag system is working can't see the issue.

The EK9's Momo steering wheel with airbag, into my EJ9. Uses the same splines and all, just different look to it.

X2 Can they really fail you on them? They have the same functions, only with added hold (Bolsters).

If the car as already past the test with an after market steering wheel they can't fail it then as I have one and it passed last year but I don't have any clue if my car every had an airbag as there is no light on the dash.

^ Yes that's a fail.

EK9 wheel will pass as it's a genuine Honda wheel with an airbag in a honda.

Seats will fail lads but best job is to try it. If it's a factory fit and your failed its up to you to prove it you have to go to dealer and get a print off.

That's the way this country works.
seats and wheels are the thin end of the
wedge so to speak. I think the modified car in Ireland
has its days numbered. year after year the list will get longer.

I think it gives the NCT centres the power to fail cars for dangerous modifications not listed elsewhere in the guidelines.

It shouldn't be of any concern for us car enthusiasts who work hard to do things right on cars.

If you are serious about your mods and declaring it properly get an Engineers report.
Its the best thing I ever did with the Corolla. It's 100% worth the peace of mind.

Can't wait to test my car in March it has more Celica and Levin parts than Corolla ones
