Wow that's cutting it close. I know the inspection guys at spangdahlem are bigger dicks when it comes to passing cars. i don't know how they do it out there, but they will pull our car into a garage of all places to do the test, which is obviously gonna make it louder and rev it up. I hope I don't have to use the steel wool technique, just makes me nervous, but i will if I have to... getting the tint removed and put back on hopefully friday.

I know u said you failed inspection in sponge but if you haven't already you should go to baumholder! I just got my car passed inspection there on the 1st try. I also had a blown headlite , exprired first aid kit and a oil pan leak. All which would have gotten me failed on vog. He just said fix it and passed her. It was great!

yeah for sure. the stock exhaust is 80 bucks but 80 bucks i could put towards something else for sure...The guy that inspects our cars is a dick, and that's not an understatement. One of my buddies failed because of an e-brake, he showed the inspection guy a receipt that he had the whole thing replaced brand new a week prior and he still failed him. He went in a week later and the inspection guy said nothing about his e-brake but failed him for brakes that were also replaced at the same time.

lol....I've heard many different things about the inspection stations in the area. The Sound limit for all vehicles cars or bikes is 95db. The Vogelweh inspection station actually does their sound test in the middle of the compound like they should so there is no sound bouncing off buildings and making the db levels louder. But according to the Reg 95db is the limit and that is measured at half your redline....Trust me I know, I'm one of the inspectors here on Vog....lol

is it half of the marked red line as marked on the tach or do they just rev to 3.5-4k?

For me it was 3,000rpm. The car was halfway in and halfway out the bay. I dont think that helped me out.

Typically if we think the car is too loud we will check it with the DB meter at the door of the building and if it comes close to failing we will pull it out into the coned off area. As for the RPM yes we can go half of where your redline starts, but typically we take the vehicle to a couple hundred shy of the halfway point. We're not there to try and fail everyone.

The regulation states if it's an aftermarket exhaust other then factory installed, the vehicle can be denied registration no matter the DB level.
