    DOT or E-code is technically required to pass. What's your vehicle?

    Nope. Any time there is a shop that lets something like that slide, it doesn't take long before they get their wrist slapped.

    Regarding dot lights:
    I've read about two options,
    1- retrofit a set of dot projectors that clearly have DOT written on them, like this
    2- buy a set of accord lights or similar and make a set of brackets. They can be ugly and ridiculous as long as they are secure, illuminate and your hood closes.

    So you got a retro fit on your lights? You should post pics. also let people know what shop did it for reference.

    I used ABC tireland for OOP, anyone who needs to pass OOP, just give them a call, someone there can recommend some shops for fixing your car to complies OOP.

    New member here,
    does anybody know of anyone who has a 2002 Caldina GT-4? I just imported one into Vancouver and am having a hard time trying to find a north american fitting headlight or some other way of getting DOT or E code compliance headlights to pass the inspection.
    any ideas or advice is greatly appreciated.

    cheers
    Scott

    Hey Scott.
    Best bet is to find a shop that isnt as "picky" about the Headlights.
    Nickel Automotive
    1282 Franklin Street
    V6A 1K1 Vancouver, British Columbia
    (604) 253-0273

    Should be able to help you out.
