The Nissan Skyline is one of the most popular tuning vehicles ever. Not only thanks to well-known Hollywood blockbusters like "The Fast and the Furious". A downer, however, is that there are usually no TÜV parts certificates for Nissan Skyline tuning parts.
Because import vehicles, due to their individual registration, do not have a uniform data status in the vehicle registration document compared to the vehicles homologated by the vehicle manufacturer, regular TÜV parts certificates for vehicle accessories cannot be issued. Due to this problem, we therefore always had to deliver chassis for imported vehicles with a comparative report of a similar homologated vehicle. However, the registration cannot be guaranteed by means of a comparison report.
Stress-free registration of our Skyline coilover
In cooperation with TÜV we have succeeded in having a TÜV test report prepared for our Nissan Skyline R33 GTST coilovers. Thus we can make the technical acceptance of the Skyline coilovers much easier for our customers in the future. All orders received immediately will be delivered with this TÜV test report.
Why are there no TÜV parts certificates for pure import vehicles?
All vehicles that are officially sold through authorized dealers in Germany or within the ECE region must be approved by the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) or another authority prior to market launch ECE-Kraftfahrtbehörde. To make this possible, these vehicles and installed vehicle parts are homologated. Simply put, vehicles that are officially sold within the ECE are built according to uniform rules. Thanks to this standardization according to the ECE specifications, a TÜV parts certificate can be issued without any problems, since it is ensured that the vehicles and series parts described therein meet the underlying specifications.
With Japanese import vehicles (and vehicles from other non-ECE countries) these specifications are not completely fulfilled. As a result, these import vehicles must be registered individually. Due to the individual approval (incl. individual testing for compliance with legal requirements), deviations may occur which cannot occur with homologated vehicles. For this reason of these possible deviations TÜV parts certificates are not possible.
