MG RV8 Bulletin Board
I have been trying to establish the exact VIN Number, front wheel arches ceased being fitted to RV8's.
From the information received so far the change point occurred between VIN's 1242 with front wheel arches and 1250 without front wheel arches.
Therefore any owners with RV8's between these VIN's I would welcome your input as to whether your car has flanges or not.
Thankyou Jim Dolbel For Current Finding click here (link courtesy of UK v8register.net)
RV8 IMPORTS INTO AUSTRALIA TO RESUME
RV8 Imports into Australia are to resume following accreditation under the new Registered Automotive Workshops (RAWS) legislation by RV8 Cars Australia.
This new legislation followed a review of the Motor Vehicle Standards Act of 1989 by the Federal Government which suspended RV8 Imports into Australia on 8 May 2003.
The new legislation arrangements included the introduction of a Specialist & Enthusiast Vehicle Scheme (SEVS) to determine the eligibility of vehicles for importation and replaced the (bulk) old type approvals under the Australian Design Rules (ADR) with a vehicle by vehicle compliance approval by Registered Automotive Workshops.
This new legislation now requires each type of vehicle to be crash tested (all imported vehicles less than 15 years old) to meet the new requirements.
Under the new scheme only RAWS approved workshops will be able to comply vehicles to the Australian Design Rules and only RV8 Cars Australia are approved under the new legislation to Comply RV8’s to these standards in Australia.
