My vl calais was defected today and send to regency?

I was also fined 257.00 for an unroadworthy car, in was unaware you could be fined for this?

My defect was for a loose seat
Oil on the motor
and darker than legal tint.

Do i have a good chance of appealing this fine and winning

Note also i only just brought the car and had only owned it for a couple of hours.

Thanks

They would have got you for the tint firstly which is definately a defect,but then they wanted to find anything else they can ping you for so they went ahead and did that but for having oil on the motor thats a loud of bull.You have no chance appealing the tinted windows

i know i will have to go to Regency, but ill still have to pay the fine,

On the paperwork it gives the option to contest, so im assuming because they just make up Bullshit to get the revenue

I was pulled over by 2 cops litreally 10 mins earlier, who said to just get it fixed.

I'm from victoria so this might be different, but did you get a Roadworthy Certificate with the car? If yes, you can say to them this is the piece saying it's RWC which would include the 3 things about the car which is wrong, and the people who supplied the road worthy cert would have to pay for everything to get changed. (basically dodgy Road worthy)

Did you inform the second cops that the first ones told you to get it fixed

DevilDRake the problem is it isnt law that a roadworthy certificate needs to be supplied not in NSW anyway,especially if its a private sale

Yes i explained about the first 2 cops, which i think made him anrgier, seemed like a nazi.
The first 2 cops said well let you of, but if you get a nazi cop hell defect you.

Of course they can make up bullshit so what they need to do is actually photograph the defects as proof so if they didnt do that then what I might do is go and get the 3 things fixed up quickly and then contest it and say well the cops lied
