Lucky you lot! Over here in the UK we have a terrible smoke test. Goes
something like this ... the exhaust is tested with a probe (opacity test) up
the end and has to be no more than "3" ... (don't exactly know 3 what but my
car just failed with a series of 5-7s. What's terrible is that the test runs
like this.

  Of course those "in the know" could turn down the max fuel screw, or more
simply, put a block, floor mat or whatever under the accelerator pedal to
keep it from hitting full throttle.  :)   You could also put some slack in
throttle cable.  Only blocking the pedal would work on the TDi cars, or
reprogramming things.
