On the 6th December 2017 the time finally came and we (the garage owner helping me with the mechanics and I) showed the Mini to the authorities. After a two hours inspection by the chief expert himself we got a tentative OK for the use of public roads.
There was only a minor issue with the hand brake and that’s why we have to show the car again this Wednesday. I hope that everything goes well I can drive home with the Mini with the official vehicle’s registration plate.
I have to admit that the Department of Transportation of the Canton Lucerne was very open and supportive. This helped a lot to get the approval.
Keep you posted …. cheers Erich
