stupid A$$ nj inspection center

i swear i hate gettin my car inspected , every time its a prob. i knew it was gonna be bad when right when i get outta the car i hear some guy yellin across the build. "porsche porsche" to his retarded buddies. then the ******* grinds 1st gear! so idiot #1 gets to the end of the run slaps a rejected stiker on ym car and says have a happy holiday to me (in which i gave him the dirtiest look ever) then idiot #2 tells me my front suspension failed. the car felt fine b4 goin there and after it was def crappier, i think that bounce test just ruins the ****in shocks instead of testing anything. the ony good thing was this hot chick in the booth with me,but i couldnt even get her # b/c her bro was right there
RANT OFF

when I went last time they gave me a little card that asked how satisfied I was with their workers. Did you? Which station did you go to? I went to the one in Lodi. Just take it to a shady shop in Paterson and they'll pass you for a little extra $. Most places won't care about bad suspension as much as bad emissions, but if I were you I would use it as an excuse to buy a nice suspension setup. Make your car handle even better.

go to the Westfield station, requires an appointment which is a good thing, and the guys there see super nice cars every minute, so yours will blend right in. I pass right through, they don't create issues.
