Sorry, but as far as the roof lights are concerned, I'm on his side, living in country Victoria, I have been blinded several times by vehicles using their roof lights on the road.

What type of bull bar is it?

I am ok with pulling the lights off and will do tomorrow morn before I take it in to the rego check station.
But the Bull bar is a genuine Nissan Bar with no extrusions.

Peter,

Both John and I have already left Brissy, we will see you in a few hours to help sort out the removal of those bullbar attachments. LOL!!! Looks like there is another one on the roof, Shaker can you sort that out for him please?

Cheers, Trevor.

Landy,

His mechanic works in Oxford st so that would be a waste of time ROFL!!! also probably the reason behind it failing when Peter took it in (cheeky buggar aren't I Peter?) after all he has just got back from a big desert trip where showers were few and far between hehehehe.

Got the pink slip but the ute is now naked....... It dosen't see very well anymore :{ I asked the bloke and he said he would have passed it with the lights on...... DOH!!!!!!!!

That sounds pretty ordinary in regards to the bar (understand the lights). Obviously been charging you too much if he can throw work away like that in todays economic climate. Probably would have pulled the wheels off it and not let you drive home when he saw the chassis anyway hehehe (can't help myself).

Have fun finding a new mechanic... me thinks.
Cheers, Trevor.

First time I have ever heard of this happening, bloody strewth how the hell can a man load up his van chuck a few beers in the back, fill the fuel tanks, put the kids in the back and keep within weights when car manufacturers weigh the damn things with nothing in them then tell us we can put 600kgs in no worries. Ever weighed your rig, supposedly empty??? mine came back with only me in the drivers seat and 1/2 tank fuel at 2960kgs and I am definately not what you call heavy, more like a greyhound. This only leaves room for 250kgs in passengers fuel and luggage.....as if??? then dump a van on the towbar....there goes 300kgs overweight just there.

I have broad shoulders for all those that are happy to take a swipe. I know there will be a few, and good luck to those that do.

Cheers, Trevor.

Hey Trev, buy a new hummer from holden, if i were to sit myself and the 2 brothers in law in it with a cut lunch each and a full tank of fuel it is unroadworthy!

payload is a miserable 400KG WTF... now for a 5 seater car that means no more than 80kg for each passenger if she's full, sorry boys no beer today :-(..... irony is its a yank heapa and the average yank weighs around 130 kg or more.

Roof lights fair enough, but what the hell is wrong with the bar, was a bit hard trying to concentrate on the bar with those legs in my face LOL good looking ones mind you but the driving lights etc seem to be set back and so forth, time to find a new mechanic by the sounds of it. Regards Steve M

You are within the law if the law allows Nissan to sell it to you from the showroom floor with a bullbar on it.

Otherwise there could be some very big recalls coming up. Yes?

That is what I told the bloke....... I picked it up from Nissan like that..... He said he did not care...... It is not allowed to have a bullbar anymore...... I think he was trying to make up his own rules. Fortuanetly he did not write me a slip. He also wanted to pull me up for the tyres.... He reckoned they were to close to the guards...... They are the same width as the ones that came with the vehicle.........
Now I am getting worked up about it because it is perfectly legal apart from the lights on the roof..... and I seem to think I have read somewhere that they are now ok to be there. And that was in the last 3 mths

My son bought a camper van that was licensed in Victoria. It is a Palamino from the US and has the door on the off side. When he went to license it In W.A. they knocked it back because if this but for an extra $50.00 passed it. IT THIS A RIP OFF OR NOT. I'm surprised that they did not make him put a sign on the back saying CAUTION LEFT HAND DRIVE. What happened to the common legislation throughoutAustralia

I think you will find that the roof lights are legal, or used to be, as long as they have their own switch and covers fitted. You can be fined if found to be on the roads with no covers fitted.

The laws are quite specific regarding modifications to vehicles including fitting of additional lights and their use therre-of:

AUSTRALIAN ROAD RULES
219—Lights not to be used to dazzle other road users
A driver must not use, or allow to be used, any light fitted to or in the driver's vehicle
to dazzle, or in a way that is likely to dazzle, another road user.
Offence provision.
Note 1—
Driver's vehicle is defined in the dictionary, and road user is defined in rule 14.
Note 2—
Driver includes a person in control of a vehicle—see the definition of drive in the dictionary.

Also check RTA Vehicle Inspector's Bulletin item #5 relates to Protusions on the front of vehicles.

Hows it going Peter,

Bit of a pain , One of the Jeeps come with roof mounted lights , and the tomb raider model disco ( ? ) has them as well I think , if these can pass compliance to be sold you should have no worries.

They cant knock you back for options available from the dealer.

Hope you sort everything.

Glenn.
