Its a relief when you have catless downpipes.

Cheeky bugger took it for a spin. Said it was silly fast.

I'm glad I put it on map 1 rather than had meth flowing!!

They don't need to take it for a spin unless it is a 4x4 then the brakes need to be tested on the road oldskool style.

If they did and you don't really mind or complain then there is no harm done.

They dont need to drive it provided they have the correct rollers to do a brake check.

I didnt really mind.

My old focus ST use to fail running a straight through. MOT tester once said it would of failed emissions if he had put the sensor 10ft behind it! Funny F*****, NOT!

Emissions aren't a problem due to mid cats.

Visual inspection of missing primaries is the worry. They didn't notice or care.
