    Faulty exhaust. They're right, I probably should fix the thing. I've just been lazy, but while we were sitting there I noticed i'm burning oil again. This will have been my third vcg. the first time i changed it i screwed it up, but i thought i had it this time.

    They let me off with a warning. Still pissed me off.

    yep then its a "fix it ticket"

    Some places may require a state approved shop or inspection station to inspect it, but I have heard of some states where you can submit receipts proving the parts or labor was done and they consider it fixed.

    When I got a fix it ticket in New York for a blown headlight, I just had to show the cop at the courthouse that it was fixed and he took care of everything from there.

    Check with your state, or call the court/place and find out what steps to go through to make sure it doesn't bite you in the butt...

    thanks guys. I'll call them in the morning if they're open. figures I'll probably get 5 actual days to fix it, but they expect me to get ahold of them on a business day.
