Topic: Cape Town Modified Cars (Illegal)

Hey guys, I am not from Cape Town but my car was tuned over there and I will be going to there soon. Want to know what is your take on the modified cars getting their licence discs taken over there? I have a 40mm drop suspension, some guys have coilies other ouens have bags but it seems, the Cape Town police/ traffic officers don't care. They are on a rampage and are declaring almost all these mods as illegal. There was a tazz with coilies and wides on that's disc was pulled. I am against cutting coil springs, that is just wrong, but coilies are expensive.
All this is happening because of illegal drag racing but what is the stats for modified vehicles and accidents? Anybody have this info maybe?

Re: Cape Town Modified Cars (Illegal)

Always wanted to move to Cape Town to feel the full force of my 20 but now I am just ok where I am. This has actually been going on for a while with mainly HID xenons being targeted  but there was a news report during last week deeming all mods to one's car as illegal. Many car groups are saying they will not stand for this anymore and guys are calling out for a rally against it. All in all there is more talk than action. Hoping though that this silliness will stop. I am keeping tabs on this via social media.

*** Latest incident involved a Honda's disc being taken due to rear lights not working. The guy's brake light did work though. All that was wrong on the car was that a fuse went. This guy has gone to see traffic officials for this madness and hopefully will sort it out. He also says he will not be paying for a RWC or a new licence disc.
