My R passed APK inspection today.<p>APK is an anual tech/emission inspection which starts after 3 years from new. After that the car needs to be offered for inspection each year. Sort of CARB I guess.<p>I did receive a letter about a month ago but I totally forgot about it. Car needed the inspection before June 11, the day it turned 3 years old.. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Phoned the dealer this morning if I could bring in the car because I was in the neighbourhood and they were happy to inspect the car ASAP. APK takes 30 minutes max. Downside is that the inspector can receive a cross check when certifying the car. In that case the car needs to be parked the way it is certified until an inspector comes along to recheck the car.. <p>But all went OK. No problems, one advice for minimal tire thread. <p>On to the next inspection.. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>CO was way within limits btw with the Ferrita DP and tuning in place.<br>Lambda 1.003 under test conditions.<br>Angle gear leaking like nothing's wrong. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG SRC="http://www.swededemon.com/images/S60R/apk.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: Good for another year. (Johann)

The comment meant that you tend to drive your cars, with your trips to the Ring, etc. You are not one that sees a car as a "garage queen", a car that is seldom driven but alway looks good.<p>With that in mind it is no surprise that your tires are worn, because you use a car for what it was intended!
