UK Government to ban all vehicle modifications

Alert to Elan owners in the UK (sorry if it has been posted elsewhere on LEC):

UK Government plans to outlaw modification of any road vehicle or non-road vehicle. Consultation ends 22 November.

The “anti tampering” proposals which affect us (or probably 90% of us) are on page 11 of this document:

15 Page thread on PistonHeads worth a look for those concerned. Maybe we will all need to just have Garage Queens. :-D

When is a mod a mod, Lotus upgrade Exiges and some Elises with Nitrons straight from the factory. Owners replace worn out Bilsteins with Nitrons .

My Harley had Harleys own brand Screaming Eagle exhausts on it, stamped with not for road use. The key was to put tape over the not for road use bit just outside MOT station, testers not allowed remove anything . Passed every time .
Some people beat Rambo from A to B.
