Smog test in Germay...?

Do you guys have to pass a smog test? From what I've been seeing it looks like Germany is getting stricter but I wanted to hear from those there. Is it a pain to mod your cars there? Here in Italy they will tax you and fine you just for modding your damn car. I'm USAF and really like Germany and hope to get stationed there after Italy.

My main question is, if I was to get a High Flow Cat (HFC) down pipe would I have to worry about passing emissions? Also, are picky is it there with exhaust sound too?

Thanks.

If you are military no. Our inspection is nothing like what the German go through. If there is nothing leaking, higher than 8mm, all lights and horn work, and the exhaust is less than 95db - you are good.

I passed with no cat and a 3" turbo back on my old evo (db machine was broke).

Keep the tint off the front door windows too.

Good info thanks. I want down-pipe as well as cat back so i might be stretching the db...damn it.

So they don't allow tint in front of car? I was just about to get my car tinted...another damn it!
