We’ve posted this photo on our Facebook Page asking for public opinion, and it has gone VIRAL, with a slew of negative comments and protests.

With all the commotion going on, a member of the AE92.ph group says he has a friend from the Legal Section of LTO, who has clarified the issue. It seems it was an issue of semantics:
– Car enthusiasts’ definition of “modification:” body kits, spoilers, lowered/lifted suspension, mag wheels, high performance engines, etc.
– LTO’s definition of “modification:” complete change of body style e.g. closed van into passenger type, 2 door sedan into 4 door sedan, dropside truck into passenger bus, etc. hence the need for an engineer’s approval.

According to the post, if you set up your ride, in LTO’s eyes, you simply did a “parts upgrade.”

Of course, we shouldn’t take this as an official announcement, so take it with a grain of salt. Read through it, and let us know what you think in the comments.
