  Subject: [Quantum Owners] Department of Transport Proposals

  Under the title Road Vehicles : Improving Air Quality, there is a proposal to 
change the way kit cars are treated. This has been highlighted in 
'Madaboutkitcars' forum, along with 'Pistonheads', 'Rods & Sods', locost forum 
etc.....
  Basically these are the proposals:
  
https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/678209/road-vehicles-improving-air-quality-and-safety.pdf

  Kit cars
  4.10 Kit cars and reconstructed classic cars undergoing IVA will not be 
required to meet WLTP, given that at present they are not required to meet NEDC 
or the latest EU standards. Instead they are tested to age-appropriate MOT 
standards, on the basis of the date of manufacture or first use of the engine. 
  4.11 We are proposing that for kit cars, compliance with the MOT emissions 
standards current at the date of registration will be required, despite the use 
of an older engine. In other words the current relaxation for emissions 
according to the age of the engine will no longer apply. 
  4.12 Reconstructed (restored) classic cars undergoing IVA will not be 
required to meet the latest MOT standards, as long as the appearance of the 
vehicle is broadly unchanged and the engine is of the same capacity as that 
supplied with the vehicle when it was new. 4.13 When new vehicles were first 
required to be fitted with catalytic converters around 1992 (Euro 1 emissions 
standard), kit car makers typically used older engines which were not fitted 
with catalytic converters, hence the justification for age-appropriate testing 
of emissions based on date of engine manufacture or first use. The majority of 
the fleet is now vehicles up to 25 years old whose engines are fitted with 
catalytic converters, providing plenty of choice to the kit car builder.

  It's not entirely clear, but it looks like it's directed at kit cars being 
presented for IVA, and not existing ones, but 4.10 isn't worded well, and does 
it mean that a car IVA'd in 2010 with a 1985 engine will not now comply? - Will 
we have to scrap our cars?
  We need to respond QUICKLY, as the consultation started on 2 Feb, and only 
lasts until 2 March.  
  From a department that lets VW get away with Dieselgate, we are being 
targetted for using our cars which recycle parts and in terms of fuel do very 
little mileage and are used mostly out of town - the impact on teh environment 
is minimal, and may be our best chance or getting these proposals dropped!
  Martin
