VA inspectors are usually idiots. When I lived up there I had a guy try to fail my Saab because he said the venting in the hood wasn't stock, and that the hood wasn't designed to open backwards, that I had "jerry rigged" it. What an idiot. I called his manager and had a word with them.

Do all of us a huge favor. Take an impreza brochure from last year in there and wave it in his face and make him admit how stupid he was to question your scoop.

Post VA inspection of the Sube

I had to have my car inspected in order to get a pass for the base here in Va, and I darn near failed the inspection. First, the guy questioned the scoop. I told him it was from the factory and I bought it like that. "Yeah, I know it was made at a factory, but I can't figure out if it came with the car." He finally looked up the regs in his little book and it was ok because it wasn't 1 1/8 inch above the bottom of the windshield. Next problem...I have Hella 500s mounted on the front. I told him I see trucks all the time with tons of lights on them. He said, yeah, but you Va. law says you can only use 4 headlights at a time. I said, "Ok, there's a difference between application and use. That's why I have covers on them; I only use them for offroad driving." Yeah, but these trucks have them on lightbars on the roof and.... I finally convinced him to just drop the topic and he passed me.

Then I asked him about registering my car here and he said something about registration fees by weight of the car and paying sales tax. I told him I already paid sales tax on it. He said they still charge it. Um, yeah, whatever.
