Wow looks like they have "Over Regulation" going on over there like some States and Canada over here in North America do! :(

Really; an Exhaust Pipe Flange Gasket, Exhaust Manifold Gaskets and Brake Pads caused $15,000.00 AUS in "inspection and Lab fees", not to mention $12,000.00 Damage from "Destructive Testing" to the Car!

Those were SO obvious that they likely had SOME Asbestos, that you could first replace them all for $50.00 and tell the "FEDS" to stuff it!

I don't think too many people would EAT those parts, maybe causing some medical issues in 30 years! :lol:

Could not find any threads about Asbestos in Australia, it must be in Huggers.
