Well fortunately it's not that bad yet, but the inspectors (at the TUV) know 
headers look like, the have a hunch that british cars did not come with 2 
double Webers (with only one "b" please!!!!) and they can distinguish a 
chrome K&N from a stock filterhousing. Anything you do that they can't 
see or hear, or they just happen not to see (my friends Lancia Monte 
Carlo always passes with header and 2 double Webers) is OK until you have 
an accident, your car is scrutinized and found to be modified. Then your 
liability insurance does not have to pay!!!!

Happy Tuning (in the british sense),
