For my daily - how can I determine if a strut spacer lift kit will be certable? I'm looking at this one which seems to be well designed and includes subframe spacers to ensure the alignment is not wrecked, as well as adapters for the longer brake hoses, etc.

The installation PDF in there has heaps of install pics.

Todays stupid question,

The new cert tag thingies. Does the constabulary scan them, then get a link to a database to read the info? 

What happens if you encounter the five-0 in a location where theres no mobile reception? (OOODLES of places like that) what then?

Pink sticker first, and ask questions later?

Its a valid question. You can get the details up with just the number on the tag and the vin.  If they have cell but not internet I imagine they could call and get someone at their home station to look.  Whether or not they'd bother is up in the air.

I think I'll save the details page as a pdf on my phone for if this situation arises and hope for the best.

Especially a car that was mega slammed. This car is too low, im gonna sticker it. But it has cert. 

*no cell coverage.

It's too low, I'm a cop, I know these things. (Like Ian the cop who knew about screamer pipes) it's too low. Have a nice pink sticker...........

Pretty hard to know until you fit it really. I've done 3 or 4 of those kits in Subaru's and all have had problems,  mostly with the sway bars hitting the steering or binding at extremes of suspension travel

This or print it out and keep a copy in the glovebox is a good idea to solve the no internet problem

Mega slammed and certed? Most likely modified since cert lol. Unless it's on bags.

Plenty of details aren't on the old cert plates, not a new situation really.

It only takes a cop who thinks they know more than they do to decide your car is too low. I once had a cop try and peer into my wheel arch to check my springs were captive..........

I'd say it'll be attitude based, like most dealings with cops regarding vehicles. 

If there's not coverage they can't really sticker you. They'll follow ypu to somewhere that has reception

And say you were heading into a place with none?  

Just playing devils advocate......

Why are you asking people who are not policeman about what a policeman would do in a highly improbable scenario?

I'm sure the first time it happens to someone, we will all hear about it and no matter what we guess right now, we will probably be wrong.

The answer will either be the cop will do nothing, and you will scoff at the answer because ACAB, or the cop will do something and you will blow a fuse because ACAB.

I think you're possibly being a little unfair; yes KKtrips (as admitted) was playing the devils advocate but the question was directed to a person who plays a pivotal part in the implementation of the regulations. 

No personal offence intended but the "all care and no responsibility - it's just my job"  argument just doesn't stack up well in todays world?

The new system seems like a good improvement that will reduce the ability for people to guess if the car is still running as per cert. For those times you don't have coverage, print it out as mentioned above if you are that concerned you will be unfairly treated for driving in a legal manner.
