After a few weeks of wait I have finally got my BNR34 back with shaken passed! It's been a while so, let's make a step back...
For those of you who don't live in Japan, shaken is the Japanese roadworthiness test that every car must undertake every two years in order to circulate on public roads. Step one: I had to bring the car to Nismo, where I left it in good company (as always).
The checklist includes bodywork, tire alignment, emission, speedometer, brakes, headlights and an undercarriage/suspension check.
Given that my car is completely stock I had full confidence that it would pass the tests with flying colors, but this is a bit of a nightmare if your car is tuned as many mods are considered not compliant. The inspectors are pretty strict and many owners have to revert their cars to factory standards in order to pass the test, and then re-fit their suspension or muffler set-ups once they are done.
Since I had to leave the car at Nismo for a few weeks, I also thought I'd use the opportunity to refresh a few bits.
