the land rovers in the dandenong sale have a victorian roadworthy certificate, and still have the tie down points on.
Really! they're auctioning them with roadworthies now. They didn't when I bought mine.
Didn't need much for a roadworthy, though.

Just on the bull bars, I have a Territory. I tapped a roo and Shannons decided to write off the vehicle despite the damage being minimal.
The vehicle needs a VIV which means an inspection by Vicroads.
To prevent me having to go through this bull**** again (I tap a roo about once a year.) (The Commodore and Camry stood up to these incidents but modern cars that are made from tinfoil don't.), I had a new ECB bull bar fitted a couple of weeks ago.
I have been informed verbally this new bull bar may not pass the Vicroads inspection. They tell me this is because of new bull bar regulations recently adopted. I'm trying to find out what these new regulations are.
Maybe this is because of the new regulations?

If the ECB bar carries a compliance plate or sticker saying it is compliant for your Territory when it is legal.  No sticker/plate means it is illegal.

Yes, it does have the sticker. I'm still trying to find these new regulations. No one has heard of them.
Maybe the engineer I spoke to is a little confused.

There is nothing new in the regulations have been around for quite a long time - in fact about as long as tow bars have had to have compliance plates so about 10 years or so.  Prior to that I think you are on your own and almost anything can be fitted - the rego rules on removing rops for Perenties probably doesn't have a leg to stand on if someone took up the legal cause due to their age, exactly the same if a 5 poster bar was fitted would not be illegal as the age of the vehicle predates the more modern rules.

So if the compliance plate/sticker says it is complied for your model Territory then you will be fine.

As you might be aware I have a Range Rover Sport - basically the same a Disco 3 and the Disco 3 bull bar fits straight on BUT it cannot be legally fitted as the compliance plate names the D3 not a RRS so I cannot fit one to my car.

Does anyone know a reputable mechanic near the Bandiana area that I could contact about a viewing of some of the vehicles that are coming up for auction next week?

Maybe in the NSW auction - but the only FFR that I checked in the Vic Auction still had them on..? WT?

Maybe the Vic prices will go up now !

The Perenties at the Bandiana auction have had the chop as well  :(

I sent AFM an email asking why they're being cut with some background from the depots. I'll advise their response but since it's been 2 weeks with no reply I guess I won't get one...

Even the Mogs and Macks in the Sydney auction have had them removed, too.

I suppose if you were a pedestrian hit by a Mack truck, you wouldn't want any protrusions on the front bumper, they could hurt!

I think I will apply to CSIRO for a grant to find out, statistically. I have to be given a large sample of volunteer pedestrians of course.
