968 E-tested, Saw an S4 there too... and a Mini
« on: September 05, 2007, 08:19:07 PM »
I just got all the papers in order for the 968, e-test, title, etc.  The E-test station in Boulder was fun as usual.  It's noisy in there, I gotta wonder how much pollution is caused by that big building open on both ends, all that ventilation going full blast and and all those cars idling, etc.  But I digress.  It took a while to get smogged 'cause I was stuck behind a RHD Mini Cooper that stopped running.  It smelled like raw gas and refused to start.  Interestingly, it looked like they were not going to put it's little golf cart wheels on the dyno but instead were doing a regular tailpipe test.  The tailpipes were very black, I doubt it would have passed, if it ran.  Ah well.  Neat little cars.

I also saw a B5 S4 that had... RS4 wheels on it maybe?  19" at least.  They put it on the AWD dyno despite the 2cm of sidewalls.  It was pretty low too but I guess it fit.
