I don't know where you heard that but I've taken them off every single car I've ever owned and I buy at least one new car a year. There has NEVER been even the slightest hint at trouble. This might be vary from state to state but I would love to see any evidential information you have about this statement.nikivee said:It's against the law to remove them. You car won't pass inspection then.
Yeah, but what about using one in the shower??? Nothing wrong with that, is there?scottknight said:LOL, these things crack me up. My wife caught me cutting the big ugly warning tag from her hair dryer cord the other day...you know, the one that says to not use it in the tub and such. My response is always the same: If someone has the mental capacity to read the note, they have enough common sense to not use the hair dryer in the tub anyway. Needless to say, the logic flew right past her

That's the old "non OBDII" test called the IM240 roller test. Our cars since they are OBDII (as are all cars sold in the rest of the 49 states since 1996...California was 1995) get an OBDII PCM scan test and is extremely easy to pass. If you can't pass it, you've got issues.Razinhell said:Car inspections are state regulated. In Oklahoma, apparently you don't need an inspection. In new york state, its every year for a mandatory $36.00 on a emition testor that runs the car at around 55-65 mph or as they say cruising speed, because they felt the old ones were too slow and didn't match everyday driving. About the stickers, that is in no way true, New York has one of the most strict inspections after maybe California and it only matters if your emitions, saftey and lighting are all in working operation. They can't fail a car because the sticker isn't there, that law is for GM. Its similar to the Mattress tag that can't be removed under penalty of law, that law is for the manufaturer to protect the consumer against fraud.
Isn't it true though that the OBDII test is only valid for metropolitan areas? I've read that my area still does the old tailpipe test because we aren't high enough population or something.CMNTMXR57 said:That's the old "non OBDII" test called the IM240 roller test.
